Product description

Product Description

Art curator for media tycoon Lord Lionel Shahbandar (Alan Rickman), Harry Deane (Colin Firth) plans to acquire the piece his employer longs for--Monet's 'Dusk’. However, Harry has no interest in procuring the actual painting for Shahbandar...

With the help of beautiful rodeo queen PJ Puznowski (Cameron Diaz), the pair hatch a scheme to fool Shahbandar into believing that Harry's expert forgery is the real deal and pocketing a hefty sum in the process.

But with the con proving harder to pull off than he had first intended, Harry finds himself in increasingly awkward and hilarious situations in order to keep Shahbandar's suspicions at bay and see the job through to the end.

From Amazon.co.uk

Pretty much without question, the biggest selling point of caper movie Gambit is the names of the people who wrote it. The screenplay to the film, a remake of the 1966 movie of the same name, was penned by the terrific Coen Brothers, and there are several of their touches quietly dotted right throughout the movie. A full-on Coen Brothers movie though this is not.

Gambit is also a film that's attracted quite a cast. Headlined by Oscar-winner Colin Firth, the line-up also features a wonderful Alan Rickman, a playful Cameron Diaz and an underrated turn from the regularly underappreciated Stanley Tucci. Each turns in good work, and each is great fun to watch.

That said, even with those ingredients in place, there's a sense that Gambit doesn't always quite add up the film you might suspect. It's certainly a lot of fun at its best, and there's quite an old school, traditional feel to it. The humour's variable, but then there's a lot of upbeat positivity underpinning Gambit, that ultimately makes it hard to resist.

It would have certainly been interesting had the Coen Brothers decided to direct Gambit as well as write it. As things stand, though, it's an undemanding, entertaining and rewatchable film, that could have been just that little bit more. Well worth watching, but readjust your expectations accordingly. -- Jon Foster

I bought this purely because I am collecting films featuring the late Alan Rickman.

It is a pathetic remake of the excellent Shirley Maclaine/Michael Caine film from years ago. It is so bad that if it were not for Alan Rickman it would have gone straight into the recycling bin. It is not one of Rickman's greatest by any means but, at least, he acts - which is more than can be said for Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz.

I have never been let down by a film with Alan Rickman. This film is funny and has some unexpected twists in the plot.

Having been disappointed at missing Gambit when it was on at my local cinema a few months ago, I have now at last got round to watching it on DVD. My main criteria for watching this particular film is that I am an avid `Rickmaniac' (Alan Rickman fan) and, having got most of his films/TV work on DVD, felt I owed it to my allegiance to add this one too!

So, as Colin Firth himself said in an interview, this film is not ground-breaking - all the old `clichés' from 60s and 70s capers seem to be there, along with `Pink Panther'-style farces - from Colin Firth without his trousers (time to move over, Brian Rix ) to a dig at the Japanese, American, Germans and indeed Brits, with all their stereotypical idiosyncrasies to the fore. All that seems to be missing is Peter Sellers' Inspector Clouseau, complete with trilby hat, magnifying glass and his trademark distinctly ridiculous French accent. Then again, it's what we, as Brits, do best - the fact that we haven't really done so since the 60s and 70s is neither here nor there. The other fact being that the Coen brothers, who wrote the script, ironically, are in fact American. Then again, the original of this was made in the early 1960s (with Michael Cain and Shirley McClain in the lead roles, and I'm led to believe that the original writer was in fact English, though please don't quote me on that.)

The role of Harry Deane, the put upon Art Curator at the heart of the story, is not one that you would automatically think of Colin Firth for. And, although he does his very best, I spent most of the time I was watching him thinking that someone else (not sure who) might have been better. He wasn't terrible by any means but I personally think there are better comedic actors out there.

Harry Deane (Colin Firth) wants to scam his boss Lionel (Alan Rickman) for no other reason than Lionel is not a nice man. He employes the help of Texan PJ (Cameron Diaz) to help him with the scam that runs into problems.

The film is reminiscent of a 60's style comedy. The main problem was Diaz's character whose accent and sayings were more cringe worthy than funny. The film makes good use of showcasing Diaz's gams, but outside of that, her character fell flat.

It is a comedy worth a view if you are looking for something amusing which doesn't require you to think too hard. I personally find "The Brothers Broom" a far superior scam flick.

Parental Guide: No f-bombs or sex. Diaz bra/panties. "Partial nudity" means Rickman's butt.

By Dolphin TOP 500 REVIEWER on 23 Jun. 2013
Format: DVD
This loose remake of the 1966 comedy starring Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine seems to make frequent references to "Pink Panther" material, from the opening titles to the obvious recycling of classic gags: the trouser-less man, the naked man in an everyday situation, the haughty hotel clerks, the stereotyped Japanese businessman, and so on. Some familiar names sleepwalked through this disappointing movie, perhaps not doing their reputations too much harm, but failing miserably to lift either the tone or the interest level. Sometimes even great actors are not enough to save a mediocre project, especially when on-screen chemistry is missing.

Very briefly, the story follows the efforts of one Harry Deane (a disgruntled art curator played by Colin Firth) to put one over his boorish and unpleasant employer (Alan Rickman) by tricking him into buying a fake Monet painting. Deane's ace-up-the-sleeve is the brilliant forger Major Wingate (Tom Courtenay) who can reproduce to order any old master, while his wild-card is a Texas rodeo queen called PJ Puznowski (Cameron Diaz) who poses as the naive owner of the lost painting. As in the original, the first part of the film shows the perfect execution of the fraud. Predictably, in real life the heist runs into problems and the comedy is supposed to come from the shifts to which Deane and his flamboyant accomplice are put in persisting with his stinker of a plan.

Most good movies are built around plots that are neither original nor brilliantly clever but have one essential ingredient: that vital spark that catches the attention of the viewer and makes you care about one or more of the characters so that you want to know what happens to them. In this case the spark, if it was there, eluded me.

Started OK - could have had promise. Ended OK, though probably predictable if you'd been taking notice of the middle which was dull. Clearly even the writer knew they couldn't fill the allotted time. Funny, it isn't.
