Synopsis: A Bored billionaire decides to entertain himself by stealing a Monet from a museum, an investigator from the museum's insurance company takes an interest in him and a complicated back-and-forth game with romantic undertones begins between them.

Review: I just finished streaming this film on Netflix for the first time, and the title of my review says it all. This remake is boring, it has poor-pacing, and the overall story is just drab and stale. This romantic heist drama or whatever it's supposed to be is an hour and forty minutes too long. I did not enjoy this movie, the first 25 minutes or so is the only halfway decent part, the rest of the film is just plain awful. This cine has a rubbish plot, i have not seen the original, and after seeing this remake i don't want to see the original, hopefully the upcoming second remake will be better than this 90s version, but i doubt it.

just watch the original

Significantly worse than the original. Russo's character in this was incredibly ditzy and came off as stupid. The other detective character played by Dunaway in the original was very smartly written and well acted. Russo has strange emphasis on certain words made no sense at all, but I couldn't tell if it was the director's choice or hers. She also resembled agent Scully from The X-Files, from her hair to her wardrobe-even some of the detectives called her spooky at one point, similar to 'spooky' Mulder. Not only that but Brosnan was James Bond at this point so it was pretty obvious that the filmmakers here were cashing in on already popular media.

The romance between them didn't feel at all believable, they had no chemistry, apart form their hollywoods-status attractive looks. Russo's character was overly sexualized and seemed like she was trying to seduce every single man she walked by. It got exhausting. The sex scene went on for way too long and felt like soft core porn. Don't get me wrong, I think sex scenes can work, as they have in the past, but this got obnoxious.

The score is probably the worst I've heard in my life. None of it was played at appropriate parts and it was, yet again, incredibly obnoxious when it did play, which was probably 90% of the runtime (or at least that's what it felt like).

As a whole, the original was very smartly written with small ques as to what is going on in dilute for the audience to piece together, this spells everything out bluntly, making the audience feel like idiots, including countless filler scenes to pad the runtime.

Brosnan And Russo Dance

Allow me to be romantic. For this is a romance, after all.

Remember that time you were with her (or him) when you suddenly, for the first time, thought, "I think I might be in love with her"? And the supreme pleasure of that thought was tinged with an element of doubt..."but what if she doesn't feel the same way"?

Take the first stirrings of love and blend it with a smoothness. Smooth like smooth jazz. Like a warm brandy. Smooth like a ballad sung by Sting. "The Thomas Crown Affair" is smooth.

This is my favorite film by Rene Russo. She is so smart and so stunning. She could easily be the object of an artist's affections, right?

Remington Steele. Bond, James Bond. In "Thomas Crown". Pierce Brosnan gets the role where he is his smoothest. No sharp edges. Collected even when not cool. Like a muted trumpet. Like a Modigliani.

They play the game of confidence, where the artist promises to trust the pigeon. Not since "Double Indemnity" has the business of insurance been this sexy. There are other worthy performances here, but this is a pas de deux, aided by some wonderful writing.

The final sequences are clever, captivating, perhaps confusing in the best way, but then....smooth.

Why compare this film to the original? Why compare a Modigliani to a Titian? Just enjoy the ride.
