I like this movie a lot, but I would never think to call it a comedy. And it's certainly not a rom-com. I remembered really enjoying it when I first saw it back in the 90s and I recently watched it again. The wardrobe and score are a bit dated (the score sounds like an episode of Seinfeld), but the movie's themes are as relevant as ever.
Not hilarious, but mildly humorous. What I found so ironic is that the object in question was not to me an object of beauty. However, the character I liked the best was the deaf maid, who honestly found it to be so.
It was a good film but theres not much story in it. Very average i mean it just shows a group of people caught up with one expensive object stolen, simple to understand. I think it coveys the message that being rich is not easy as it seems. There some moments where it tried to be funny but no.
MacDowell or Malkovich are not at fault, it's rather a mystery how this project got under way at all - the storyline is uninspired and outright boring. I failed to discover even a hint of morale, and the character's motivation for their actions are seemingly absent. My rating would have been lower if it wasn't for two seconds of Andie MacDowell's buttocks and a standout supporting role by Joss Ackland.
