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.

I have never written a review before but after watching this movie I felt compelled too. This probably rates as one of the worst movies I have ever had to endure. I don't think I laughed once and that is hard for me As i am easily entertained. Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson must have been seriously hard up for work to take this on after reading the script. The whole movie was ridiculous and lacking any depth.

It is hard to understand how such a strong cast produced such an utterly weak movie. OK, so Piers Morgan made Mamma Mia, so his credibility is thin, but Emma Thompson, Celia Imrie and Timothy Spall hardly put a foot wrong. Yet it just doesn't add up. For a movie so utterly implausible to carry you along it has to be very funny. This is only mildly funny and gives you much too much time to notice how ridiculous the plot is. The characters are just lazy stereotypes - the ruthless businessman, the gold-digging girlfriend, the wronged wife of the philandering golf-playing businessman, the loyal secretary. It's just factory-produced rom com. The only redemption comes from Imrie and Spall, who are genuinely funny in their slapstick support role. Overall, it was a waste of an hour and a half of my life.

Ex plot-which is daft (aren't all such movies?) a wryly comic little gem which improves on rewatching-killer soundtrack too (the cinema version not the soundtrack album. Pressed all the right buttons for me.

Joel Hopkins has created a film that will truly make you smile with its quintessential British qualities. I am not a great fan of slapstick, but this is rather gentle and sophisticated slapstick that with its 'empty-nester' lead characters will certainly appeal to an audience of relative status, amongst whom I was fortunate enough to be seated, as they laughed with empathy at the subtle sexual references and woes befalling the lead characters. Sometimes an audience just enhances the viewing experience!. With the perfect casting of some great British favourites, The Love Punch is an uplifting and intelligently written film. For this full-time mother, it was a welcome antidote to the many dark and violent films that seem to dominate the big screen. Marvellous!

The first thing that attracted me to this film was the wonderful list of actors involved, I'm a fan of Timothy Spall & Celia Imrie, so to be able to watch them act alongside Pierce Brosnan & Emma Thompson was going to be a delight. It was a little like going away on holiday! real escape, warmer climes & being with people you care about! A breath of fresh air & away from bad news & reality, it's a great film & reminded me of the genre of movies when although bad things can & do happen to them there isn't any visceral ad nauseam to contend with, a proper caper & some very fine acting & script. I bought the DVD version & it had a number of extras & the interviews with the main actors is a little like attending a film course - these extras are a real insight into the characters & why the cast chose to make the film, now where's my passport I want to go to that hotel in Paris!

Watch or rewatch 'Small Time Crooks' or the better 'pink panther' films with Peter Sellers among others, same genre but far funnier.

Not as funny as I expected. There were some amusing scenes but nothing that would give me a side splitting experience.
