A divorced couple lose everything and so they plan a robbery in order to recover what is rightfully theirs.
This is a light-hearted comedy through and through, the type we are getting more and more used to in seeing the former Mr Bond. One could go on about the insufficient storyline as well as the sheer impossibility of the break-in executed by utter amateurs.
Whilst I stand by the above but to judge it on that basis would be a miss and by treating it as a fun/cheerie comedy about a former couple who have to put up with another in order to salvage their pension and embark on an adventure it will suffice for a somewhat delightful time on the big screen.
I loved this film (as did the audience I sat with). The plot was ludicrous and so far fetched it was easy to suspended belief (in a good way) and fall into the film. Many comedy heist movies of the past were duly winked at, as was one of Mr Brosnan’s previous jobs. It was simply funny. The comedy came from familiarity (If you are of a certain age the banter between the main characters was so true as were the slightly debilitating aches and pains that come with age even for ‘action’ heroes), naughtiness, and silliness; not from the unpleasant or xenophobic put downs; it wasn’t lewd, crude or rude. But nor was it lame or fluffy. In that respect it was refreshingly honest, as was representing the college aged children as normal, responsible and capable (if somewhat criminal) adults.
A great wish fulfilment knock about caper. A sequel please.
