Divorced couple Richard (Pierce Brosnan) and Kate (Emma Thompson) are forced back together when a corrupt French businessman makes off with their pension plan money. Determined to recover their cash they plan a daring revenge heist with the help of married duo Timothy Spall and Celia Imrie.
Richard (Brosnan) is on the point of retirement when his company is bought out and sent into recievership, leaving him, his employees, and his ex-wife Kate (Thompson) without the pensions they've been counting on. Outraged, he and Kate head to Paris to confront the man responsible.
Faced with the fact that the company take-down was entirely legal, the pair decide to take matters into their own hands and steal back what's been taken. They recruit a couple of friends (Imrie and Spall) and set about planning a heist.
Along the way, as they're thrown into ever more perilous situations, Richard and Kate begin feel a rekindling of romance.
More proof that Thompson is a national treasure. She's capably supported by the always excellent Imrie and Spall, and Brosnan is as charming as ever. All four of them do their utmost to bring a sense of life and fun.
