Well, this is an interesting switch: our most recent Agent 007 (Pierce Brosnan) is a sexy crook instead of a sexy spy.

That's an understatement.

Brosnan plays Thomas Crown, a rich businessman who steals a $100,000 Monet painting from an art museum - apparently, just for the hell of it. Catherine Banning (Rene Russo) with a very unflattering hairdo) is the European insurance investigator hired to retrieve the painting for the museum. Immediately, she initiates a romance with Crown, and for a while, it's hard to tell whether she's more interested in him or the painting. (Now I know where the writers of Entrapment got their idea - from the original The Thomas Crown Affair. Talk about stealing a plot!)

Brosnan and Russo are terrific together, and the interplay between the two very suave, self-assured characters, is stylishly chic. (You can't help but wonder just who will outsmart who?)

Additionally, the clever tricks and ploys Crown uses prove quite amusing as he eludes the cops.

Despite his James Bond history, and appealing appearance, Pierce Brosnan is totally convincing as the slightly crooked billionaire Mr. Crown, and with Reno Russo as a perfect match for him - in more ways than one, The Thomas Crown Affair becomes an absorbing, yet pleasing drama.

My Rating = Four Stars
