    The world didn't need a remake of The Thomas Crown Affair. We didn't need it, but we got it anyway -- and it's pretty terrific.
  2. A romp of romantic larceny built out of spare parts we've seen in countless other films.

    Slick, gaudily suave guilty pleasure of a movie.
  4. Non-cultists should enjoy this engaging and well-acted retread -- a film that develops its own charm as it goes along.
  5. McTiernan's film mines what substance it has from its two stars, but is admittedly about keeping up its own appearances.

    Why remake Norman Jewison's staunchly cool 1968 heist film in such a lackadaisical, uninspired manner?
