A fine remake for older teens and adults.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie's R rating comes from some swear words, nudity (Russo appears topless and Brosnan appears bottomless), and a steamy but not very explicit sex scene.

I thought this was a pretty decent light hearted, sexy, crime thriller. More of a heist film to be honest. it's fun seeing how they did it, if the cops can figure it out and if he can get away with it. Strong cast and a well put together film overall.

Really hated this film. Rene Russo was awful! The random nude scene was disturbing too!

A very mediocre film about a billionaire who obviously wants challenges. The film looks good and the lead actors have a good chemistry between them. But I just didn't warm up for the movie. It's boring and slow paced and never really gets that exiting. Predictable from the first moment when the two main characters meet on the screen. Denis Leary's screen time should've been a lot bigger. He was the most interesting character in the movie. In the beginning we find out stuff about his past and so on, but when the two lovebirds start their teasing, Leary's character is gone... Nice views, a lot of sex scenes and some obvious "twists" in the end... No effort here.
