Movie Info

Thomas Crown is a self-made billionaire who can buy anything he wants and is irresistible to women. But there are some things that money can't buy. Thomas Crown has run out of challenges. When an alarm sounds at a world class museum and someone walks out with a priceless Monet, Crown is the last person the New York police suspect. But one person suspects him: Catherine Banning, the brilliant female investigator hired to retrieve the painting no matter what it takes. Catherine loves the chase as much as he does and she's on to his game. Crown has found his challenge. Two can play, but only one can win.

Critic Reviews for The Thomas Crown Affair

All Critics (102) | Top Critics (29)

Still, this techno-fiscal romance has its rewards.

It's nice to see a Hollywood movie that appreciates a mature female body for a change. And nice to see that The Thomas Crown Affair has survived its glossy, glam makeover so well.

It's like you're watching two models slap each other with fashion magazines.

The Thomas Crown Affair is the movie that the people behind the heavy-handed Entrapment probably thought they were making.

Renee Russo is an absolute knockout!

Audience Reviews for The Thomas Crown Affair

½

The fantasy indulged here is the dream of being smarter than everyone else in the room. Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo are our uber-surrogates in this regard, bound for bed by virtue of their singular I.Q.'s alone (but they look mah-velous, dah-link!). Everyone else in the cast simply watches from the sidelines jealously. This filmic tango dances around about art and art heists but actually never wavers from its primary conceit. Fun, guilty pleasure.

This striking, style remake succeeds on its own merits, very average. Pierce Brosnan and Rene Russo are perfectly suited to these characters; dueling titans who must appear icily superficial and above common worldly concerns. The heist seems in both are superbly conceived and well filmed, with just the right amount of tension about the problems arising. Good stuff.

I thought this was a pretty decent light hearted, sexy, crime thriller. More of a heist film to be honest. it's fun seeing how they did it, if the cops can figure it out and if he can get away with it. Strong cast and a well put together film overall.

A very mediocre film about a billionaire who obviously wants challenges. The film looks good and the lead actors have a good chemistry between them. But I just didn't warm up for the movie. It's boring and slow paced and never really gets that exiting. Predictable from the first moment when the two main characters meet on the screen. Denis Leary's screen time should've been a lot bigger. He was the most interesting character in the movie. In the beginning we find out stuff about his past and so on, but when the two lovebirds start their teasing, Leary's character is gone... Nice views, a lot of sex scenes and some obvious "twists" in the end... No effort here.
