    Mildly amusing. Implausible story. Interesting to be back in Paris though!

    Okay, I know I'm in the minority here, but I love this film. It never ceases to make me laugh out loud. I find it completely silly and such a delightful send-up of the spy/adventure genre. Perhaps you have to be of a certain age to find this film funny, but it gets me in the funny bone every time I see it. Emma Thompson is delightful, Pierce Brosnan's seriousness cracks me up. The sight of 4 middle-aged people in wet-suits and flippers, ready to swim a mile or two across a bay and then climb a cliff - and very casually pull off a heist still has the ability to send me into fits of laughter. It's like every movie with a team of highly trained commandos, only this time they're retired and pissed off friends on holiday. This is not a film to be taken seriously. Just sit back, look at the lovely scenery, and enjoy.

    Embarrassing, in addition to Emma Thompson's over-the-top-pest acting all the way.

    It was OK. Far from being remotely all that funny unfortunately but the two leads give it their and do what they can with what they got.
