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.

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.

By Katie85 TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 22 Nov 2014
Format: DVD
This has a very good cast and the storyline shows promise at first glance. Richard (Pierce Brosnan) and Kate (Emma Thompson) are divorced although they are still tied together financially. So when a new boss uses their nest-egg/pension fund to invest in expensive jewellery, they come together to get back what is theirs. The film takes them and their friends (played by Celia Imrie and Timothy Spall) abroad and they get up to all sorts of mayhem. It's a rom-com so it has some cliches typical of the genre and it has some slapstick moments, although these are not over-the-top. The storyline, it turns out, is not the strongest and is at times a bit unrealistic although the cast make this work. I am not in the right demographic to feel complete empathy with Richard and Kate although they are decent characters. Overall, it is a good film for a quiet night in, perhaps not one I see myself watching over and over or getting out to watch with a group of friends, but certainly good enough to watch when I want something light and uncomplicated.

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!

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

How can so much acting talent produce such a disappointing result.

Right from the first five minutes, it was clear this was going to be a turkey, and it didn't get any better.

Next time, hire a writer as well as the actors!

Two stars for the actors, who did their best.
