Spanning locations in Paris, London and the French Riviera "The Love Punch" brings together Pierce Brosnan ("Mama Mia") and Academy-Award winner Emma Thompson ("Saving Mr. Banks") for the first time, as ex-husband and wife, Richard and Kate, whose biting banter suggests that the flames of their former relationship have not been fully extinguished... Unfortunately the same cannot be said for their retirement nest egg which is wiped out when Richard's investment firm is defrauded and the pension fund is siphoned away. Learning that the unscrupulous French financier behind the scheme has just purchased a $10 million diamond for his bride to be, the divorced duo grudgingly agree to set aside their differences, and hatch a plot to gate-crash the wedding and steal the rock. Roped in to assist in the heist are the couple's former neighbors Timothy Spall ("The King's Speech") and Celia Imrie ("The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel") who are also rooting for their reconciliation. The foursome form an unlikely band of lawbreakers in this classic comedy caper set against the sun drenched backdrop of the Cote d'Azur.

Nice scenery. Good to see the actors, but not a very good story.

Just a fun caper for day dreaming empty-nesters to play cloak and dagger in stealing a stone as retribution for their stolen retirement funds.

Well, put it this way. I've never commented on a movie on here. Until now. This movie was LAME. Mediocre and very predictable storyline, and surprisingly, crappy acting. I didn't expect an Oscar winner but with the two main cast members expected decent performances. Didn't happen.

Entertaining movie, with a few laughs throughout, scenery was very nice.

Great cast. Terrible script and direction. If you see it, see it for the scenery.

Kate: I think that liking them is much more important than loving them, actually. Love is easy to fall into. Liking is much harder. Think of your wedding as a driving test. You take it, you pass, and then you really start to learn how to drive. Or you crash.

Manon: A wise woman once told me that you can love your husband but you must also like him.
