The Thomas Crown Affair is the perfect defence for why films could and should be remade for new generations.

Hhandsome Pierce Brosnan and elegant Rene Russo look fabulous here, but they fail to ignite an exciting on-screen chemistry.

A fine remake for older teens and adults.

Common Sense Media

In 1999, was there a more suave man on the planet than Pierce Brosnan?

Three Movie Buffs

This movie is basically a no-brainer, but has some intrigue and a healthy dose of seduction.

Audience Reviews for The Thomas Crown Affair

½

The fantasy indulged here is the dream of being smarter than everyone else in the room. Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo are our uber-surrogates in this regard, bound for bed by virtue of their singular I.Q.'s alone (but they look mah-velous, dah-link!). Everyone else in the cast simply watches from the sidelines jealously. This filmic tango dances around about art and art heists but actually never wavers from its primary conceit. Fun, guilty pleasure.

This striking, style remake succeeds on its own merits, very average. Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo are perfectly suited to these characters; dueling titans who must appear icily superficial and above common worldly concerns.
The heist seems in both are superbly conceived and well filmed, with just the right amount of tension about the problems arising. Good stuff.

I thought this was a pretty decent light hearted, sexy, crime thriller. More of a heist film to be honest. it's fun seeing how they did it, if the cops can figure it out and if he can get away with it. Strong cast and a well put together film overall.
