Trivia

There are at least two allusions to Brosnan's former role as James Bond. When Spall offers his gun, Brosnan momentarily holds it against his cheek in the iconic 007 pose. Later, when all four heroes are scaling a cliff, the score briefly becomes a fake John Barry action cue. See more »

Goofs

When they arrive at the Ritz Carlton to drug the Texans (at around 42 mins) the hotel doors clearly show the Intercontinental Hotel logo. See more »

A gloriously jolly romp
23 April 2014 | by Figgy66-915-598470See all my reviews

23 April 2014 Film of Choice at The Plaza Dorchester Tonight - The Love Punch. A gloriously jolly romp starring Pierce Brosnan, Celia Imrie, Timothy Spall and the marvellous Emma Thompson who is nothing short of a national treasure. This is a lighthearted tale based on a fairly serious premise of a company being taken over and and stripped of it's assets without a single thought of what's going to happen to the employees. With everyone having lost their financial security, Richard (Brosnan) makes a promise to sort everything out and with ex wife Kate (Thompson) he enlists the services of their neighbours (Imrie and Spall) and the computer expertise of their son to embark on an adventure to get back what is rightfully theirs. Set mainly in Paris and the South of France, this film keeps you amused throughout and the four main characters work splendidly together to the gentle conclusion. Great Weymouth reference too!!!
