Gambit (2012) - Comedy | Crime

Gambit (2012) - GOOD MOVIE

   I have not seen the original, so I am unable to compare it, but, with no doubt, I can still give you the truth. This movie  is about an art curator who decides to seek revenge on his horrible boss by tricking him to buy a fake Monet painting.
  "Gambit" is a delightful lighthearted comedy about a heist that deviates from the plan. The original plan that Harry had was displayed in the beginning ten minutes of the film, then the rest of the run time is about how things do not go according to plan. Actually everything goes wrong and the situation becomes so hilarious. Colin Firth is great as a frustrated and disgruntled art curator, while Cameron Diaz is charming with her distinctive accent. She makes her character so interesting, her mischievous simplicity is a sharp contrast to how she gets things done in a well controlled manner. The ending twists are well executed, making it a truly Coen script. I find "Gambit" funny and entertaining.
