Editorial Reviews

Middle aged and divorced, company owner Richard Jones is looking forward to a worry-free existence as he arrives at his office on his last day of work. Much to his dismay, he discovers that the management buyout of his company was fraudulent. The company is now bankrupt and the employee pension fund - including his own - has been embezzled. Enlisting the help of his ex-wife Kate, Richard sets out to track down the shady business man behind this, Vincent Kruger. Before they know it, Richard and Kate are caught up in a cat and mouse caper across Europe in a whirlwind of intrigue, mad chases and jewelry theft during which they rekindle their romance...

As a caper movie, THE LOVE PUNCH is filled with plot holes. Indeed, the daring heist that the leading characters attempt to pull off is downright silly, yet the players in this romantic comedy are so charming and their dialogue so smart and funny, that the utter ridiculousness of the escapade becomes unimportant to the enjoyment of this film from writer/director Joel Hopkins.

Pierce Brosnan and Emma Thompson play a divorced couple, who are shocked to discover that their entire pension/retirement plans have been stolen by an unscrupulous French businessman (Laurent Lafitte). Virtually broke, Pierce and Emma decide, with the help of good friends Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie, to get their revenge against this crook (and reclaim their own money) by stealing a ten million dollar diamond that he has recently purchased as a wedding present for his somewhat reluctant fiancée (Louise Bourgoin).

Brosnan may once have been “James Bond,” but in this movie he plays an ordinary, middle-aged businessman, and even though, at moments, the film’s background music evokes memories of .007, this heist is not one that an amateur like Pierce’s current character and his cohorts could believably pull off. It’s really like an old Mickey Rooney/Judy Garland musical, but instead of “Hey, kids, let’s put on a show,” it’s “let’s pull off a heist”.

But, don’t think about that. Just sit back. Enjoy the performances and the dialogue and have some fun.

Ketchup Entertainment distributes THE LOVE PUNCH onto DVD. The sole extra on the disc is an interview with Brosnan.

It seems to me these days that romantic comedies want to attempt to elevate themselves above the genre rather than embrace it. Long forgotten are those classic comedies that included romance and instead we're left with romantic comedies that seem to feel the need to include an agenda as well. Forget that folks, let's have some fun here. A romantic comedy is not likely to alter the course of history in any sense of the word. They are mostly enjoyable pieces of fluff that are fun to watch and perhaps garner a second viewing. They entertain. I'd much rather have those than be preached to about how a woman doesn't need a man to get along in life only to find the man of her dreams within seconds of making that pronouncement. So it was a joy to watch THE LOVE PUNCH, a romantic comedy that brought back memories of Cary Grant and Katherine Hepburn at their best.

Pierce Brosnan plays Richard, an executive about to retire from the day to day grind. Emma Thompson plays Kate, his ex-wife who has never quite adjusted to single life. Their youngest child is off to college and both seem to be adjusting. All that changes when Richard goes to his last day at the office only to find that the company has been sold and the purchaser has legally taken all funds that were connected with the company, including the pension fund set aside for the employees. With the pension gone Richard has lost everything as has Kate who was tied into it as well. What to do? Discover who the purchaser was and appeal to his sense of right and wrong.

The duo high tails it to Paris where they intend to confront the scoundrel. They sneak into his office, tell him that this isn't fair and are quickly removed from said office.

"I will find out what's going on it will just take time. I will make sure that everyone of you gets what they're due. I will not, will not let you down." Richard (Brosnan) is finally at the point in life where he is going to retire. He sold his company and has a comfortable pension coming. When he shows up on the last day he is surprised to learn that the company that bought his is under investigation and every asset they had is frozen. When he tells his ex wife Kate (Thompson) they decide to talk to the man that bought the company. When things don't go the way they want they are left with only one choice. I am a big Pierce Brosnan fan and I really like when he plays a take off of James Bond in comedies. He did that in the Matador. This one does have shades of Bond in it as well. Other then that the movie is hilarious. Brosnan and Thompson are perfect together and I laughed pretty much all the way through. I don't want to talk to much about it because to much would ruin it but not only is the dialog witty with some great running jokes but the soundtrack is awesome. Nothing is funnier then watching four 60 year-olds walking in slow motion into a hotel with I Fought The Law playing. This is one I could just go on and on about but all I'll say is watch this...very funny. Overall, a must see comedy. There is British humor but this is also more main stream. I give this an A-.

Just fun to watch. A little silly, a little outrageous, but it kept me watching to see what would happen next. And it's got veteran stars who know what they're doing. I wanted them to get back together, too!

The audio is mixed so poorly in this movie that one can't hear most of the dialog, though the music is ear-spliting. The plot has holes you can drive a truck through. I guess it is a cute romance
