[The Love Punch] is well-made fluff of the sort we don't see much of any more, so if this is a genre you enjoy, it's here for you.

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.
May 23, 2014
A delightful, breezy and outrageously funny slice of mindless entertainment with a charming cast.
Full Review | Original Score: 7.0155/10
May 23, 2014
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
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.

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.

May 22, 2014
Fairly lightweight, but Brosnan and Thompson bring such a sense of fun to the slapstick that you ignore how insubstantial it all is.
May 19, 2014
Adventurously sweet 'n' silly, it's light-hearted, feel-good fun that's geared to amuse middle-aged audiences.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10
April 23, 2014
An old-school caper comedy, this goofy romp struggles to surmount its badly contrived screenplay.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 18, 2014
If the plot is a bit clumsy, that's more than made up for with sheer exuberance and plenty of cheeky banter.

April 18, 2014
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.

April 17, 2014
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.

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/5
March 20, 2019
It's only the twinkle-eyed self-parody of former Bond Brosnan that makes this dire Brit-com remotely watchable.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
May 23, 2014
This "Punch" never truly connects.
May 23, 2014
Thompson is one of those rarities who shines in just about anything. Her crack timing enlivens even her worst lines.
