Overview

When a priceless Monet painting is stolen from the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the police find themselves wondering which world-class art thief pulled the job. What they don't know is that the thief wasn't a professional, but an amateur. Thomas Crown (Pierce Brosnan) was born poor but made his way through Oxford on a boxing scholarship. With his sharp sense for business and ruthless ambition, Crown has become a self-made billionaire; but despite his wealth and power, he still seeks new challenges, and he steals art not for the profits but for the sheer excitement. However, as fun as art theft might be, it's still illegal, and investigator Catherine Banning (Rene Russo) is brought in to track down the culprit. Certain clues point to Crown, so Banning introduces herself into Crown's social circle. Police detective Michael McCann (Denis Leary) warns Banning against getting too close to Crown. She takes McCann's suggestion lightly -- until she finds herself falling for the suave thief. The Thomas Crown Affair was adapted from the popular 1968 caper film of the same name starring Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway; Dunaway appears in the new film as Crown's analyst.

This movie is classy & entertaining; twists & turns keep you thinking. This is a remake of an earlier movie with Faye Dunaway, who does a cameo in this movie. I think the newer movie is much better, beautiful visuals, great music & performances. I wish I could live like Thomas Crown, if only for a week!

My favorite movie of all times.  I never get tired of watching it.

The Thomas Crown Affair certainly has a wonderfully written script. The ingenuity behind each of the wealthy businessman's schemes keeps one interested. But one does need to be cautious, particularly with the nudity in this film. I was surprised at the extensive nudity that Russo and Brosnan subjected themselves to. Overall, it was an engaging story much in the fashion of a 007 James Bond movie. It was an intelligent movie with unique references to famous works of art.

This was a great cat and mouse movie which Catherine Banning knows that Thomas Crown stole the painting. It is a matter of her doing detective work in catching him. Thomas Crown knows that she is on to him and it is his intention on not making a mistake and getting caught. It had some very steamier love scenes. The movie has a surprise ending and it was exciting.

I thought this movie was excellent. It did have some very ''steamy'' love sections which rather detracted from the mystery of it (I thought), but it had a very suspenseful plot. Although it wasn't as high-action as other films (James Bond), it was definitely a great movie, and I would highly recommend it!

I thought this remake was more than a little lame. The original with Steve McQueen and Faye Dunaway had a much more believable (if sadder) ending. Also, the love scene in the original has no nudity, but manages to be much more erotic.

The Thomas Crown Affair came off as chic and suave, it had an old flair to it with a clean modern twist. It Alomost reminds me off a cosmoplotian with a lemon-lime twist to it. Rene Russo steals the show and defanitly has her fair share of wearing the pants in the movie although Pierce Brosnan is always one step infront of her. Classic modernistic. Great to watch if you enjoy slightly unrealistic but tantalizing story lines. I recommend this movie to those who think fast and sleek.

this movie was a sexy, fast pace film that makes you think. it keeps you intigued until the last moment. you might have to watch it twice to get the full impact of the story but its worth it.

I found the film to be perfect. The astonishingly, handsome Pierce Brosnan did a excellent job along with Rene Russo. The original was definitly beaten out, though i found this movie to be too much like the James Bond series. Great film to watch when you can catch it.

I have watched this movie over and over again and it still fascinates me! I think that the plot was very much believable. I have been told that the original is much better, but I've been so comfortable with this version, that it doesn't merit me watching the original version. Brosnan was clever, witty, and very sharp. Russo was sexy, clever, very sharp and highly intelligent. This is one of all time favorites!

Liked this movie far more than the original which is rare. By changing the story emphasis from the 'caper' and making it a romance the filmakers breath new life into the story. Rene and Pierce are at the top of their game and the sparks are there. Note: Rene Russo was 45 yrs old when she made this movie and puts many younger actresses to shame.
