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.

    Rene Russo's nudity!

    Rene Russo at here stunning finest. Brosnan’s and Russo’s roles seem to be written for them. Rene Russo has the life that anyone would want. She is a well paid detective/trouble shooter for an insurance company. She is self-secure, intelligent and beautiful. The kind of characteristic any one would want to know or be male or female. Sadly, this appears to be Russo’s best shot to be a lead actress in anything but B type derivative movies. Part of her beauty in this movie is tinge of age that shows around here eyes. That she’s not that latest 17 year old chicka from ex-eastern block countries we have been showered with lately. Brosnan owns a successful investment firm the specializes in leverage buy outs. He is a self made man who has everything he thinks he wants and is a part time thief for his own amusement. Brosnan fit this role better than he ever fit into James Bond. Besides the enjoyment of watching Russo Move across the screen, this movie has beautiful cinematography. The most memorable are the shots in the Glider where the music and the visuals blend together so well they make you hair on the back of your neck stand-up. Comparing this with the 1968 version there really is no comparison but the name and vaguely the plot. I’m a big Steve Mc queen fan and the original is just painful to watch. Maybe just Faye Dunaway just can’t stand watching a movie with her in it. She does have a bit part as Brosnan Psychiatrist. I own this movie and my wife and I through it in on rainy days when we just want to grab a blanket and snuggle on the couch.

    I love this film, mostly for this one scene, courtesy of Pierce Brosnan, Nina Simone and Henri Magritte.... please, please, (please!) don't watch unless you've seen the film or never never ever intend to see it.

    Heist films are usually fun, but I've yet to see one that has more to offer than a few thrills. The Thomas Crown Affair is often clever, occasionally unbelievable, and consistently entertaining. The only problem is, I can think of five films in the same genre that do the exact same things.
