Elevator Pitch A divorced couple whose financial security has been destroyed by a hedge fund owner, decide to get together to recover their losses, eventually by stealing a large diamond which their enemy has given to his fiancee. In order to carry out their plan they have to gate crash the wedding in the south of France, with two friends, all disguised as Americans.
Content The divorced couple bicker amiably, during car chases, bedroom scenes and during the heist.   There is a party and some creeping about in luxurious surroundings. An implied sexual failure and a bit of risque chat.
A View I could not get away from some of the unanswered questions, and you might say, “does it matter?”. Well, in some comedies it does, because they have to take a bit of a riff on real life. I’ll just ask one. Where did four people put their suit cases in a four seater mini-car? There are others, and despite the fact that I really like all the actors I would advise you to choose something else in which they have appeared. This outing is weak.
