Storyline

Following the theft of a highly-secured piece of artwork, an agent convinces her insurance agency employers to allow her to wriggle into the company of an aging but active master thief. Connery's burglar takes her on suspiciously and demands rigorous training before their first job together--stealing a highly-valued mask from a chichi party. Their deepening attraction and distrust could tear apart their partnership but the promise of a bigger prize (some eight billion odd dollars) by Zeta-Jones keeps the game interesting. Only, who's playing with whom? Written by Lordship <lordship@juno.com>

Trivia

An early scene, in which Gin sneaks into Mac's hotel room, and leaves the Time magazine on his bed, was deleted, but can be found (without audio) on the DVD. Jon Amiel said test audiences thought the scene unnecessarily delayed the first encounter between Gin and Mac. See more »

Goofs

Gin tells Mac that the heist is to be pulled "tomorrow night," yet the day they conduct the heist is one day after that. See more »

Quotes

Mac: You are the most beautiful crook I've ever seen.
Gin: Why, thank you kind sir.

Alternate Versions

The British Board of Film Classification state that "substitutions" were made before a 12 certificate could be awarded. The edits were to change the line "Sit the fuck down" to "Sit your butt down". The DVD subtitles contain the original line, and the Australian DVD uses the same cut master. The cuts were waived for the 2007 DVD release. See more »

The characters carry this film
7 September 2003 | by perfectbondSee all my reviews

The best aspect of Entrapment is the wonderful understated romance between Sean Connery's "Mac" and Catherine Zeta-Jones' "Gin." I thought this was far more moving than many of the swoony full-blown love affairs I've seen in other movies. Zeta-Jones is very glamorous and got to model a lot of swanky clothes. Connery is weary and reserved as befitting his age and that made the May-November romance all the more poignant. Ving Rhames again was the street wise tough, a role he has done many times before. The action sequences while quite good are not as exciting or suspenseful as in other movies of this type (ie. The Thomas Crown Affair). Still I enjoyed this movie thanks mostly to the the chemistry and as I said understated romance between Mac and Gin. Recommended, 7.5/10.
