    It's a deluxe vacation for adults with all frills included: glamorous settings, glamorous clothes, glamorous sex.
  2. A romp of romantic larceny built out of spare parts we've seen in countless other films.
  3. Reviewed by: Robert Horton
    Strangely enough, this movie provides a lot of the James Bond veneer that has been missing from recent James Bond movies.
  4. Non-cultists should enjoy this engaging and well-acted retread -- a film that develops its own charm as it goes along.
  5. What The Thomas Crown Affair has to sell audiences is a fantasy of the life of the super-rich who jet off to Martinique on the spur of the moment, and the super-smart who operate outside the rules.
  6. Hard to believe that real emotion was involved anywhere in this story.
  7. 40
    Why remake Norman Jewison's staunchly cool 1968 heist film in such a lackadaisical, uninspired manner?

    Pierce Brosnan and René Russo in absolute top form! A heist-movie that is one of the great paragons for the also brilliant Ocean's-movies. And, of course, one that doesn't have to hide behind them. Awesome!!! Expand

    The Thomas Crown Affair proves to be a decent movie with a slick, confident performance from Russo, and an even slicker, more confident performance from Brosnan. The story is interesting, and the chemistry between the two leads is top-notch. Expand
