The biting banter of ex-husband and wife, Richard and Kate, suggests that the flames of their former relationship have not been fully extinguished...Unfortunately the same cannot be said for their retirement nest egg which is wiped out when Richard's investment firm is defrauded and the pension fund is siphoned away. Learning that the unscrupulous French financier behind the scheme has just purchased a $10million diamond for his bride to be, the divorced duo grudgingly agree to set aside their

Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan deserve better than this creaky heist-caper comedy from 'Last Chance Harvey' director Joel Hopkins.

You haven't seen cringeworthy till you've seen a group of mature British actors in granny-beige M&S slacks doing the Reservoir Dogs walk

An old-school caper comedy, this goofy romp struggles to surmount its badly contrived screenplay.

While there is a sequel planned for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, let's just sincerely hope that this particular endeavour, though inoffensive, ends abruptly here.

This is a broad, old school comedy: imagine Mrs Brown's Boys without the swearing. Or Brendan O'Carroll. Or the jokes.

Utterly joyless - although you can somehow imagine Nigel Farage enjoying it immensely.

If the plot is a bit clumsy, that's more than made up for with sheer exuberance and plenty of cheeky banter.

Thompson seems convinced that she's taking part in a critique of careless capitalism, as opposed to a hideous hybrid of The Pink Panther, Sex and the City and Terry and June.

Despite four game stars, this is ill-conceived and poorly executed.

There are some guffaws and the actors look as if they're enjoying the Riviera locations, but dignity is in short supply.

Hopkins keeps the action moving at a zippy pace and displays a lightness of touch that keeps the film from becoming too excruciating in its more ridiculous moments.

If ... it sounds like the sort of film you would find almost any excuse to avoid, then trust your instincts.

It reeks of 1970s television sit-coms rather than 21st century cinema. Perhaps Hopkins is intent on making Pierce and Emma the new Terry and June?

A moderately amusing diversion that coasts by on the charm of its cast. It might just put a spring in your step.

The accomplished cast do their considerable best. Likable fun.

The Love Punch has once again shown how rich a pool of mature actors we have, while also demonstrating how much they deserve better material.

We loll, longing for literally anything else. A movie about Stalin? The Foreign Legion? Donald Duck?

Tonally wonky, comedically creaky and confuses light-as-a-soufflé with just plain silly.

You just have to go with it. This is pure unadulterated wish-fulfilment for the over-50s with a sunset ending that could have been sponsored by Saga Holidays.

Brosnan and Thompson seem hell-bent on a good time, but Joel Hopkins' broad, lazy script is no sparkler.
