Mac: Rule number one: never carry a gun. If you carry a gun you may be tempted to use it. Rule number two: never trust a naked woman.
While describing this movie to my friend who came in late, I told her that it's about thieves thieving so they can be successful in thieving. One's the master thief and the other's the rookie thief trying to prove herself to the master. I said this and realized that this is a very easy movie to come and enjoy. It's in no way original and it involves two of the sexiest people in the world trying to one-up each other.
Mac: We'll either both get caught or both get dead.
Sean Connery is a master thief and Catherine Zeta Jones is a rookie thief posing as an insurance agent. She seeks Connery out with a proposition to learn from him as well as make a lot of money.
From there we get a number of twists and turns revolving around alliances and how-do-they-do-it thieving scenes.
And besides the forced romantic factor between Jones and Connery, the movie is very sexy showing both characters. Connery is at his most Conneryist here and Jones struts her ass through lasers. What more could you want? Well, you get Ving Rhames being his cool self as well.
Its a very decent movie, that flies by very quickly and is fun enough.
Mac: Has there ever been anyone you couldn't manipulate, beguile or seduce?
