The Love Punch Reviews

August 25, 2014
The jokes are as creaky as the would-be robbers' ageing bodies, but Thompson's air of wry disdain and Brosnan's frisky playfulness are enormously winning.
June 30, 2014
The lead actors outshine a predictable script in this globetrotting romantic caper.
May 28, 2014
...an underwhelming and forgettable endeavor that squanders the efforts of its charismatic leads.

This "Punch" never truly connects.

Thompson is one of those rarities who shines in just about anything. Her crack timing enlivens even her worst lines.

Alas, there are no sparks. There is no excitement. Hopkins' clumsy script simply bumbles its way past plot holes into predictabilities.

A delightful, breezy and outrageously funny slice of mindless entertainment with a charming cast.

Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson...make a charming couple. But their best efforts can't save Joel Hopkins' weak script,...which he also directed, clumsily.

Most everything about this movie is predictable within the first few minutes ...

Hopkins managed a genuine delight a few years ago with "Last Chance Harvey," starring Thompson and Dustin Hoffman as two late-in-life lovers in London. But his new script has none of that wit.

A good-natured if strenuously wacky caper comedy about a divorced British couple who plot a diamond heist to save their pensions.
May 22, 2014
Decent. Pleasant. Serviceable. Agreeable.

Seeing The Love Punch is a lot like going on a rather pedestrian cruise but having a smashing couple that you look forward to seeing at dinner every night.

May 22, 2014
...appallingly implausible...lowlighted by a total lack of chemistry between Thompson and Brosnan.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10
May 22, 2014
A heist-caper comedy with Emma Thomson and Pierce Brosnan as a winsome couple on a grand adventure to recover their love and much more.

May 22, 2014
Despite Brosnan and Thompson's inherent likability and natural chemistry, the two actors end up feeling more like old friends than a sizzling romantic item.

May 22, 2014
A romantic comedy as painfully unfunny as a sock in the jaw.

Critics - and viewers - will either huffily reject all this nonsense out of hand, wondering how such intelligent, quick-witted performers...could stoop to this level of moviemaking. Or, they'll take a deep breath, relax, and go with it.
May 22, 2014
The revenge-of-the-ripped-off plot here is nothing new; rarely, though, have we had such charming companions on the voyage over that well-trod ground.

The movie, which feels like something made back in the late 1960s or early '70s, is so relentlessly silly it's hard to watch without a lot of eye-rolling.
