The Love Punch

A couple of weeks ago, I went to see the recently released movie The Love Punch. I love movies like this: British slapstick humour, a stellar cast and a silly but highly entertaining plot.

Kate, played by Emma Thompson, and Richard (Pierce Brosnan) are an amicably divorced couple in their fifties. One morning, Richard arrives at his investment company in London and discovers that it has been defrauded by a French corporate giant, Vincent Kruger, thus, destroying the pension funds of Richard, Kate and the employees of the company. In order to recoup the money, they team up and go to France with the idea of stealing a $10 million diamond that Kruger has just bought for his bride-to-be to wear to their upcoming nuptials. And then they get into all kinds of trouble…

A U.S. release date is still to be announced but according to Movie Box, it will be later this year.
