Reviews

Heist comedy caper starring Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson, Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie. Middle-aged company man Richard Jones (Brosnan) is all set for retirement - or so he thinks. When he arrives at work for his last day and finds that his pension fund has been stolen through the fraudulent workings of Vincent Kruger (Laurent Lafitte), the man who has recently bought over the company, he enlists the help of his ex-wife Kate (Thompson) to help get it back. The two set off for France with their friends Jerry (Spall) and Penelope (Imrie) who agree to help steal Vincent's bride-to-be's diamond necklace which they feel will fully compensate for the lost funds. Can they track Vincent down and secure their future?

Format: DVD
It’s not the greatest film I’ve ever seen, but it was undoubtedly entertaining and kept us interested from the start. Emma Thompson is particularly good, and there's more than one nod to Pierce Brosnan's past as 'James Bond'. The ending is somewhat predictable but left us with a happy-ever-after feeling that life isn’t as bad as it’s often portrayed.

I thought that the rating of 12 (13A in the US) was about right. There was some minor bad language, and one or two instances of ‘strong’ language which weren’t too obvious. There were hints of bedroom scenes but nothing explicit, and some brief implied nudity that was quite amusing.

I think one has to be in the right mood for this kind of film; don’t expect anything thought-provoking or deep, and accept the silliness for an attempt to entertain.

Recommended if you want something light-hearted and fast-paced, and don’t mind some silliness and low-key slapstick.

No real extras; there are some interviews with the main cast but they were, frankly, rather dull.

I really shouldnt have liked this but I think I have reached a time where fun and 'feel good' mean more than intellect and accuracy. This is a daft and wonderful film featuring some of the best performers the industry has to offer. Great timing, implausible plot, fantastic settings, and overly romantic. They must have had a great time making the film and it leaves you with a sense of happy optimism if you are brave enough to give in to it!

I Just absolutely loved The Love Punch!
I could go on about how fun the film is and the witty writing, but my favourite thing about this film is the casting. Watching top actors act in a fun, quirky comedy brings me so much joy. The two to look out for are Emma Thompson and Timothy Spall who are usually quite straight, serious, incredibly good actors but have such incredible comedic flair and are definitely not afraid of looking like complete plonkers. Emma Thompson was just sensational with her hilarious hijinks but also manages to hold the seriousness of the miserable, bitter character.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film because it is just so much fun to watch and helps feed the idea that you are able to do anything you want, no matter how insane it is, as long as you're determined enough and have friends to support you.

A fun, gentle, British caper romp.
The first class cast bring out the best in a script which was at times a bit shaky to deliver a pleasant and entertaining light hearted film.

I absolutely loved this film!!
that much so that I watched it twice on a row, love the characters that they play, they are portrayed brilliantly!
I love the relationships in the film and the people who play them are amazing!
I was totally in awe, the laughter, loving relationships.
The storyline is very excellently written, and totally addictive.

It should have had everything going for it…. fantastic cast, seriously does not get better than Imrie, Spall, Thompson and even 007 himself. The plot looked really good fun and I was so looking forward to it. On a positive note Emma Thompson looks amazing, never seen her look better than she does in this, as does Pierce Brosnan, very handsome man, but the entire thing just descended rather quickly into quite bad slapstick and a very silly plot that was all over the place. If like me you pick it up.. see the great cast, read the blurb on the back and think … wow.. this will be great…. sorry to say think again. Rather poor.

Format: Blu-ray
With a supporting cast of Celia Imrie and Tim Spall, how could this 'silver haired' Brit comedy possibly go wrong? Simple - the two leads are bloody dreadful - chewing up the scenery doesn't come close to how howlingly bad Brosnan and Thompson are in this. He just doesn't have any comedic talent at all, while she is so irritatingly upper-middle class in her sarcasm and mugging that any necessary chemistry is rendered totally absent between them. Spall looks completely out of place and seems very uncomfortable with the whole mess, and Imrie, whilst being reliably fun to watch from time to time, struggles to maintain any pacing or credibility at all.

The script is absolutely dire, with the audience being treated as total idiots and asked to swallow the most unbelievable plot development points you've ever seen.

How on earth this ever got made is beyond me - it's horribly embarassing and the worst kind of 'British' fodder this island churns out.

Avoid!!

Format: DVD
A light hearted comedy about a divorced couple seeking revenge against an unscrupulous businessman who bankrupted the husband's company. They discover that he recently purchased a very expensive diamond and decide to steal it to compensate them. The film is neither particularly funny nor very highbrow it's more a mixture of several genres rather slapstick and corny , a combination that doesn't work despite the stellar cast.
