    If anything saves this movie, it's the acting.
  3. The script gets so silly, the Monty Python troupe would reject it.
  4. The rhythms excite expectations that go unanswered.
  5. Strains too hard to seem smart and savvy.

    The film finally collapses under the burden of implausibility.
  7. 40
    The movie is crudely jokey and, finally, a wimpy betrayal of its source.

    Lots of fun in an evil, devilish, and absolutely delicious way. Brosnan and Rush are both wonderful.
