The Love Punch review

Brosnan and Thompson tackle criminals...

The grey pound is still clearly a rich BO vein to be tapped judging by the desperate mugging of this farcical middle-aged caper.

Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan star as bickering/flirty exes who rope their neighbours (Celia Imrie and Timothy Spall, working hard) into a plot to steal a diamond from a dastardly businessman.

Recalling the woeful Gambit remake, The Love Punch makes a virtue of its leads’ considerable charm and gorgeous French locations but is tonally wonky, comedically creaky and confuses light-as-a-soufflé with just plain silly.

Bring on The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel .
