I loved it!! What are people on about (by lewiskass)
I am surprised at the bad reviews. I thought the film was hilarious. Obviously people's sense humour is not the same but come on.. Give them some credit! it's no where near as rubbish as some of the reviewers are making it to be. This film made me laugh properly and I found it entertaining and engaging from from A to Z. I haven't seen any older version to compare but I don't care I think this film was money well spent. I loved the cast especially Colin! Sometimes just looking at his facial expressions in some scenes was funny. Directing was great too not to mention the script. <more>
I can't claim that I am an expert film critics but I felt I had to write a review after reading so many negative ones which I think is quite unfair for a film that had so many laugh out loud moments.
One of the best movies i have ever seen! Colin Firth at his very very finest! a Great fantastic duo, Cameron diaz and Colin Firth. With laughs and gags throughout the movie, even the elderly couple behind us agreed! Would recommended the watch! Also Colin firth farts in this movie and it is hilarious! if you have seen the poster that is the face when he farts and trys to hide it! 10/10, must watch! Also this film has amazing special effects, it feels like you are actually on the ledge in the movie, it is so realistic and i enjoy it from start to finish, i really would want to watch this <more>
again, can't wait for it to be released on DVD BLU-RAY! -James.
A very funny movie. I saw the movie in Berlin with a mostly German audience. The laughter started slowly and then built to a continual roll. Colin Firth is such a good actor who can do both drama and comedy. My favorite comic bit in the movie is his wandering around the hotel in his boxer briefs, jacket and tie, a comic routine reminiscent of some of the great screwball scenes in movies like Bringing Up Baby and The Awful Truth. Alan Rickman gives a great performance once again acting with his mouth. Cameron Diaz who is usually over the top obnoxious in movies brings a touching tenderness to <more>
what could have been a brash and obnoxious character. I am not sure how to describe this comedy. It is neither farce nor slapstick but has elements of both. What it is is a funny, sly and witty comedy without any over the top situations, car crashes or violent scenes. I hope it makes it to the States so I can see it again.
A very entertaining, witty and well acted comedy heist! With an all star cast including Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman. Cameron Diaz in particular plays the part of the charming, brassy Texan rodeo queen superbly and shines in every scene.I spent more than half the film laughing and the rest intrigued. It has enough plot development to keep you guessing and interested until the end and enough depth and development of the characters to be believable and touching. In addition to this the sets and costumes are sumptuous and really add to the entertainment value of the film in a <more>
surprising way.There is a lovely cameo part from the red haired chap from Green Wing as an employee at the savoy hotel who keeps catching Firth in a series of embarrassing situations during one evening. It will never be 'The Shawshank Redemption' in terms of critics' approval but I don't think it is trying to be - if you want a smart, entertaining, funny film to watch you won't be disappointed with this. I would watch it again which is always a good barometer of a film.
Delightfully funny and full of one liners! (by keilanil)
I'm not sure why it got so many low ratings. It's one of those movies I've passed over many times, despite my love for Colin Firth, because reviews were so low. Finally, Redbox sold out of anything better, I gave it a try and now I'm so glad I did.If you're looking for Oceans 11 or The Italian Job type intricacies in the plot, it isn't going to happen. However, it's still cute and interesting with enough of a twist to be worth it. Where this show really shines is in the hilarious writing - the insults and comments are really really funny - and in the acting <more>
abilities of Colin Firth and Alan Rickman. Both do tremendous jobs. Colin Firth can take impossibly stupid situations, the kind Steve Martin and Ben Stiller do, situations almost painful in how absurd and moronic they are, and yet he makes them hilarious. A guy on a hotel ledge several stories up, no pants, is old old old, but Colin Firth makes it remarkably entertaining, as if this is the first time you've ever seen that scenario in a movie. Alan Rickman plays a SOB like no one else and he's the total jerk you love anyway think his Sheriff of Nottingham role because he's just so good at it and his muttered comments and blatant insults keep you busting out in laughs. I got to the point I was jotting down some of the lines in the show, and thinking I may need to go back to the beginning to write down others, because they're absurd, clever, and all-together brilliant.If you need lots of intricate plot twists and details - maybe not for you. If you enjoy understated yet remarkably hilarious verbal humor, witty comeback, diverting insult and repartee, ridiculous colloquialisms and a few side-splitting guffaws, this is the show for you.
Is this a good movie? your answer is "YES!!".Gambit has a very simple story and if you watch it carefully,it is easy to predict ending.Its not just about Harry Deane and his revenge ,Its about failure of dreams unless you take action and follow your dream in the REAL world the opening sequence shows harry's plan comes together in his fantasies but what will really happens? .Brilliant screenplay by Coen brothers makes a perfect combination of realism and humor and a little bit crime.Colin Firth is playing a very different character with comparison to his previous roles and you <more>
will see,he can makes you laugh.Not to mention great performance by Alan Rickman He plays Lionel Shahbandar,a selfish and rude boss .Cameron Diaz as the Texas cowgirl is very cute and believable.Michael Hoffman also really tried to make a funny movie with no complexity and a heist theme.
I really don't think this film deserves the poor reviews it has received! I have never seen the original so am not comparing this, simply judging it as a film in its own right. The cast is brilliant, I love Diaz, Firth, Rickman and Tucci so was never going to be disappointed! Yes it's a ridiculous caper movie, it's not meant to be taken seriously on any level! It's great fun, I was weeping with laughter at some of the hotel scenes, and that doesn't happen often in a movie! I'm not quite sure what some of the reviewers on this site were expecting, but I was thoroughly <more>
entertained! I came out with a smile on my face so in my books that's just fine!
Written by the Coen brothers Joel and Ethan, Gambit is the remake of the 1966 heist comedy of the same name starring Shirley MacLaine and Michael Caine, which this film had borrowed its base premise from in having what's expected played out in the mind of one of its protagonist, before having its actual execution go completely and hilariously wrong. And once this had started off as a troubled production with cast and crew suffered from a revolving doors syndrome, it finally nailed its key casting of Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz and Alan Rickman, all of whom prove to be what made Gambit an <more>
engaging movie to sit through and effortlessly hitting all the sweet spots that a heist comedy should hit.Colin Firth plays Harry Deane, an art curator working for Lionel Shahbandar Alan Rickman , a mean and scrooge like businessman who doesn't think twice in hurling insults of all shapes and form at his employee base should they get in his way, in any way. Clearly unliked by many, and by Harry of course, who hatches a plot to skim millions off his employer as revenge. To do so meant to come up with an elaborate plot involving Monet's Haystacks series of paintings, and travelling the world in search of a possible bait to play along and boost the credibility of the story he concocts. This brings together The Major Tom Courtenay , a master forger, and P.J. Puznowski Cameron Diaz , a ditzy cowgirl from the USA to bolster his plot for a cool promise of a half a million sterling pound reward for basically sealing the deal.And true to the original work, we get to see how the perfect heist plays out in perfect terms, as would any heist film in laying out the challenge, and the objective, with a quick run of the process and the plan in order to fulfill what the motley crew got assembled for. But when things start to swing into action, this means Murphy's Law being applied liberally by the Coen Brothers, and makes for a hilarious film with excellent comic timing brought on by all three leads. Classical moments include the entire sequence at the Savoy hotel as Harry got sidetracked into trying to go for a Ming vase, and of course, the inevitable twist within the twist as its crescendo that makes this very much fulfilling and less empty had this been nothing more than a straight-forward narrative.Colin Firth proved to be more than capable in being the gentleman's gentleman with an axe to grind with his employer, and getting back through the only means he knows how, being surprisingly quick thinking especially toward the end. stanely Tucci makes a small supporting appearance as his professional adversary, while over the top, does suggest a thought about how we tend to think that foreign experts are the best, often overlooking equally capable, or in some instances, more than capable, locals for the job. Firth's comic timing is impeccable, and is primarily responsible for holding the narrative together. Diaz goes back to what she does best as the ditzy blonde with her own street smarts to get out of sticky situations, who is aware that she holds the key to the success of Harry's absurd plan, while Alan Rickman shows what it takes to be a fiend, and yet a likable one whose presence and background may draw a sympathetic eye or two.Like almost all heist films, the payload is toward the end where things get revealed for what they truly are. Gambit has more than its fair share of surprises, reaffirming some plot points brought up but debunked early, and red herrings galore that got closed off. This is probably the Coen Brother's most accessible story to date, playing it in straightforward fashion, and while it's no insult to director Michael Hoffman, perhaps the film may be more interesting if we got to see the Coen Brothers' take on this. Still, for what it's worth, Gambit is recommended for the performance of its cast who delivered as expected without playing against type.
Funny Movie that is Actually Funny; not because it was decided for us.Story, Acting, Directing, Editing, Settings, Audio, and etc... seamless ; as well as Excellent.What I liked was instead of the shotgun approach and clumsy attempts at making us laugh; Gambit was a comedy that didn't need to tell us what it was. You are allowed to be drawn into situations as they progress, drop your defenses for the typical comedy movie assault by Hollywood and just enjoy the movie.The main character has the preconceived notion of how this plan will work, then there's the real situations, and <more>
finally; all is well that ends well.Excellent movie that you will enjoy.
