Synopsis

Divorced, middle-aged Richard Jones (Pierce Brosnan) is looking forward to a worry-free existence as he arrives at his office on his last day of work, having sold his company. Much to his dismay, he discovers that the management buyout of his company was fraudulent.

With his company now bankrupt, the employee pension fund has been embezzled, wiping out his retirement fund. Richard enlists his ex-wife Kate (Emma Thompson) to help him track down the shady businessman behind the fraud. Soon, they're caught up in a cat-and-mouse caper across Europe in a whirlwind of intrigue, mad chases and a jewelry theft that might restore Richard's future — while rekindling his romance with Kate.

  • 1 star "Beyond disappointing - just downright horrible. An older couple trying to rekindle their love for each other, during which time, the woman cheats on him with a guy half her age."
  • 4 stars "I thought it was hilarious."
  • 1 star "I almost walked out. One of the worst movies that I've seen in a long time. Even as escapist drivel, it's insulting. Very predictable. Would have given it 0 stars if that had been an option."
