The Love Punch Trailer!

Emma Thompson and Pierce Brosnan star in what we presume is a ’Sex with the Ex’ film, one that also includes robbery, Paris, and a few awkward moments. What’s interesting about it is that the leads are older than normal romantic comedy leads, and it otherwise has the earmarks of a classic romp. Reviews have said it’s formulaic but charming. No US release date has been set as of now, but its rights have been acquired by a US distributor. Here’s the very brief blurb:

A divorced couple scheme to recover the retirement money that was stolen from them.

What other older romance movies do you love?

Saw this today.... and it's great. It's storyline is slight & echoes the heist movies of the 60's. But there are some fab oneliners, it's genuinely funny & I now have a total girl crush on the magnificent Emma Thompson.She looks amazing, it's wonderful to see lines & character on an actresses face,and not the frozen mien of the Kidman set.
When it gets a US release just go... it looks amazing, the plot is bonkers, and the quartet of leads are totally joyful. I haven't seen a film that looked so much fun to make, since Ken Brannaghs Much Ado About Nothing .
