The Love Punch Reviews

May 23, 2014
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.

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.

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.

A romantic comedy as painfully unfunny as a sock in the jaw.

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.

Manages to be excruciatingly unfunny despite the presence of Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson in the lead roles.

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.

The comedy is very hit-and-miss and the action elements are also a mixed bag.

Thompson seems convinced that she's taking part in a critique of careless capitalism, as opposed to a hideous hybrid of The Pink Panther, Sex and the City and Terry and June.

Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan deserve better than this creaky heist-caper comedy from 'Last Chance Harvey' director Joel Hopkins.

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

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