Thrill-seeking billionaire Thomas Crown (Brosnan) loves nothing more than courting disaster and winning! So when his world becomes too stiflingly safe, he pulls off his boldest stunt ever: stealing a priceless painting in broad daylight from one of Manhattan's most heavily guarded museums. But his post-heist excitement soon pales beside an even greater challenge: Catherine Banning (Russo). A beautiful insurance investigator hired to retrieve the artwork, Catherine's every bit as intelligent, cunning and hungry for adventure as he is. And just when Thomas realizes he's finally met his match, she skillfully leads him into a daring game of cat and mouse that's more intoxicating and dangerous than anything either of them has ever experienced before!




  • Not as good as the original

    By Furutan1
    Some of this is hard to watch, such as Russo's catterwalling in the glider. Definitely not as cool as McQueen and Dunaway. And there was odd stuff - such as the garter (what was that for?).
  • Masterpiece.

    By zidane2015
    Once again, the critics missed the boat on this one. The slickest heist movie of its generation, by a mile, everyone is at the top of their game, and the third act is an exercise in perfection.
  • Great!

    I saw the trailer, that’s enough for me! Maybe if it was a free movie I might watch it, but to pay, NO WAY JOS’E.

    Better than the original!
  • Great Remake - Highly Recommend

    By Awe Heal
    A truly clever remake of a classic. The love/hate chemistry between Russo and Brosnan is always on. The cinematography is brilliant. The music is fantastically jazzy. And of course, the dancing is eye-candy. Fun Fact: Russo wore her dancing gown to the Oscars. There is a plethora of great trivia about this movie on IMDB. Highly recommend this movie.
  • HD - High Definition??? where is it?

    By MyWifeIsAmazing
    a movie FILLED with beautiful people, places, art, architecture etc… AND NO HIGH DEF VERSION AVAILABLE??? c'mon iTunes, seriously...
  • Poor Quality

    By Levi.Davis
    My wife and I love this movie and have rented in the past from local movie house. Decided to purchase it and get it permanently on our iTunes and Apple TVs. We purchased this last night and watched it. Again, we love the movie, but it seems that this one is not as HD as we have rented in the past.. So this rating is NOT for the movie itself, but for the quality of iTunes copy. We rate the movie as a 5+, but will back this off to a 3. I hope that if this movie was to be reimported, it would be of higher quality.
  • Smart, sexy, and mature

    Still a great film for adults after 10 years
  • One star for iTunes

    By Cych
    The original disappeared from iTunes for a while. When it returned, it had been badly cropped by 21st Century Victorians who are still afraid to see skin below the neck, and who apparently work for iTunes.
