Review by GaryW
2½ stars out of 4

The Thomas Crown Affair is about a very wealthy man (played adequately by Pierce Brosnan) who, looking for new challenges after conquering the business world, decides to steal a very famous painting. Surprisingly, stealing the $100 million painting doesn't provide much of a challenge to Thomas Crown (nor excitement for the audience). Instead, Crowne must get his thrills by toying with the sexy insurance investigator, played by Rene Russo. The movie strives to be one-part suspense thriller, one-part love story, and doesn't really succeed at either. As a result, we get a mediocre "romantic thriller", which contains just enough style to prevent the movie from being a complete disappointment. In both tone and plot this film resembles the recent "Entrapment"-- a similarly mediocre thriller with a sexy co-star. However, if you did like Entrapment, by all means, see this movie. Overall, this film is extremely mediocre, with the only high point being a quite humorous museum scene near the end of the film (although there are Rene Russo's first nude scenes).
