Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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
"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
"One of the best James Bond films in recent years."
‑ Michael W. Phillips, Jr., Goatdog's Movies
"Remade with lots of pizzazz but little wit or soul."
‑ Michael Wilmington, Chicago Tribune
"Elaborate and inventive!"
‑ Jay Carr, Boston Globe
"In 1999, was there a more suave man on the planet than Pierce Brosnan?"
‑ Scott Nash, Three Movie Buffs
"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)
"The Thomas Crown Affair is a refreshingly straightforward entertainment film, made with great style."
‑ Arthur Lazere,
"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
"...professional Hollywood movie-making, which means it's at once very impressive and utterly dismissable."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"In the game of love, sometimes even the most untrustworthy players can surprise us."
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
"an exercise in sexual chemistry and fashion"
‑ James Kendrick, Q Network Film Desk
