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.

How to Steal a Million it's not - Brosnan sleepwalks through his dialogue, and there's at least one unforgivable James Bond reference - but The Love Punch is too sunny and self-effacing to be truly toxic.

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

[...] Thompson and Brosnan really are fine romantic foils. They deserve a better movie to trade barbs in. They deserve better barbs to trade.

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

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

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.

It's only the twinkle-eyed self-parody of former Bond Brosnan that makes this dire Brit-com remotely watchable.

April 21, 2014
This is a broad, old school comedy: imagine Mrs Brown's Boys without the swearing. Or Brendan O'Carroll. Or the jokes.

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.

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

The cast is FAR funnier than the script or direction.

There's herbal teas that hit harder than The Love Punch ...

Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan deserve better than this creaky heist-caper comedy from 'Last Chance Harvey' director Joel Hopkins.
May 20, 2014
Neither the Brosnan charm nor the Thompson pedigree can save a movie that's embarrassing to all involved.

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?

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

May 22, 2014
A romantic comedy as painfully unfunny as a sock in the jaw.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
April 23, 2014
If you like comfy slacks and mildly amusing sitcoms, you're in for a ball. I found the ending cheery - mainly because I got to leave.

The jokes are as creaky as the aching bunions and bad backs onscreen, but Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan are incandescent together.
