Richard and Kate 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.

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 »

Quotes

Richard: Well, don't you feel anything, Kate?
Kate: Yes, fear.

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.
