Plot Summary

Harry Deane (Colin Firth) is a man with a plan. Art curator for media tycoon Lord Lionel Shabandar (Alan Rickman), Harry devises an elaborate plot to con his abusive boss, Shabandar, into purchasing a fake Monet painting. With the help of beautiful rodeo queen PJ Puznowski (Cameron Diaz), Harry hatches a scheme to fool Shabandar into believing that Harry's expert forgery is the real deal, pocketing a hefty sum in the process. But with the con proving harder to pull off than they had first intended, Harry and PJ find themselves in increasingly hilarious situations in order to see the job through to the end.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: This nominal remake of the 1966 art caper that starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine has all the fizz of flat soda ... – Nicolas Rapold, New York Times, Apr 27, 2014

Rotten: Middling in every respect. – Leslie Felperin, Variety, Nov 8, 2012

Rotten: Even with a script by the Coen brothers, and a classy international cast led by Colin Firth, this contemporary London caper movie falls far short of its potential even as a lightweight comic romp. – Stephen Dalton, Hollywood Reporter, Nov 8, 2012

Rotten: Firth is solid as always. He fits his tailored suits and rectangular glasses to a T. Diaz fares less well. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Apr 24, 2014

Hmmmm? Remake

Gambit , 1966, Michael Caine and Shirley Maclaine. Okay.

Give it a Miss

This is the first review I felt compelled to write.

Turned it off after 20min. Couldn't do it. Good actors, interesting enough plot, and impossible to watch. Diaz, whom I normally like, dressed in a southern accent gave a try-hard performance which was painful watch. Colin is as dry as granola. I blame the direction or the script, or both. I hope both of them got a big payday because I would be embarrassed to be a part of this one.

Bottom Line: Don't fall for the gambit. Safe yourself some money and time. Give it a miss.
