Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"First rate popular entertainment."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"Production has been lavished with extravagant sets and locations that welcome the audience into a fantasy world of untold luxury."
‑ Todd McCarthy, Variety
"Hhandsome Pierce Brosnan and elegant Rene Russo look fabulous here, but they fail to ignite an exciting on-screen chemistry."
‑ Betty Jo Tucker, ReelTalk Movie Reviews
"This movie is basically a no-brainer, but has some intrigue and a healthy dose of seduction."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"For those who still have a shred of sophistication left, and an appreciation for mind games rather than mere shock-treatment, here's a summer movie for you."
‑ Jeffrey Overstreet, Looking Closer
"It might be fun to see on an airplane or rent on video."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"Crown is a guilt-free pleasure, a way to waste a couple of hours happily at the theater without encountering computer-generated monsters or teenagers losing their virginity."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"A fine remake for older teens and adults."
‑ Nell Minow, Common Sense Media
"A deft effort by McTiernan, combining the parenthetical action sequences around the core love story. It's quick paced, good looking and solidly acted - a good selection for light summer entertainment."
‑ Robin Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"A fully adult movie, almost a throwback to the days when the big screen was full of good, grown-up fun."
‑ Margaret A. McGurk, Cincinnati Enquirer
"Remade with lots of pizzazz but little wit or soul."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Sleek and slick in equal measure, The Thomas Crown Affair confirms that it's well worth hearing a good story twice."
‑ Susan Stark, Detroit News
"In 1999, was there a more suave man on the planet than Pierce Brosnan?"
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"...professional Hollywood movie-making, which means it's at once very impressive and utterly dismissable."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"The best thing about "The Thomas Crown Affair" is that it doesn't give a hang if the 14-year-olds show up."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
