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.

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.Read more ›
This movie you just have to allow your intelligence to take a back seat, and let your blank mind watch the movie and then you can enjoy it.
at the very end Thompson has sex with a 20 something even though she isn't interested in the "boy" & is obviously attracted to her Ex . Is this casual sex revenge, or ego or ? It's the very thing that she has been criticizing her ex for ! She knows her Ex knows that she has done it. It detracts from her character's likability. Edited with better sound, this could be a gem.

This movie started out well. I like the principal actors and thought is was a fun story, but then it just got stupid. The gags were over the top and completely unbelievable. Read morePublished 2 months ago by MysticLori
