What's the film about?
The film follows private art curator (Colin Firth) who comes up with rather clever scheme to con England's richest art collector Lionel Shabandar (Alan Rickman) into buying a fake Monet painting.
In order for the plan to work he has to team up with Texas rodeo queen (Cameron Diaz) to pose as a woman whose grandfather got the painting at the end of WWII.
Who's in it? Cameron Diaz, Colin Firth, Alan Rickman
This is such a fun, silly film. All three of the main stars in this flick have proven that they can do serious but now we see just how well they can do comedy.
Naturally Cameron Diaz is no stranger to a funny flick but she is even better when paired with the likes of Colin Firth and Alan Rickman.
The guys are equally as funny in their roles which have been brilliantly revisioned by the Coen Brothers. Those guys can do no wrong!
From the hilarity of a naked Alan Rickman, to the sillyness of Colin Firth climbing around outside the hotel, we don't know how you can't love this film.
Honestly, we can't think of any! You're not going to like this film if you want to see something serious or you are a die hard fan of the original. Actually even fans of the original should be able to appreciated this. It is a Coen Brothers script after all.
Verdict: Introducing the new dynamic trio of comedy, we think Gambit should think about changing their film posters. This flick isn't a con, it delivers on all counts!
P.S. The scenes at the Savoy Hotel with the receptionists were genius!
Check out this cheeky clip of Colin Firth - without trousers- struggling on the ledge outside the Savoy Hotel.
Gambit is out in cinemas 21 November 2012.
