Storyline

Richard (Pierce Brosnan) and Kate (Dame Emma Thompson) are a divorced couple who have an amicable relationship. Richard, who's about to retire, learns that his company's assets have been frozen because it's under investigation, and that includes the pension fund. When the owner goes out of the country, Richard decides to pursue him and Kate goes with him. When they learn the man doesn't care about the employees, they decide to get the money some other way - by stealing the diamond he gave his girlfriend. So they follow them and Kate gets close to the girlfriend. Written by rcs0411@yahoo.com

A fun film
20 September 2014 | by RogcustSee all my reviews

An honest to goodness fun British comedy. Brosnan and Thomson are very funny with great backup from Timothy Spall and Celia Imrey. Great to see a film with a story, albeit simple, but with well crafted script. There are several scenes mimicking some great movies and the tongue in cheek way the whole story is put together brings a lot of smiles and some very funny laugh out loud moments. There are a lot of films currently available that are nowhere near as funny as this one, although critics ratings often seem to describe them otherwise. Haven'T seen any film critic reviews for this film, but I am sure it would not fit with the stuffy and serious ilk that befits the modern critics seem to think we may like.
