Entrapment ★½

Can you blame this for pinning everything on the allegedly unbridled chemistry between a barely ambulatory Connery, playing only the 500th master thief to go by the nickname "Mac" and a 40-years-his-junior Zeta-Jones? On paper this must've seemed like a classy no-brainer but in practice Jon Amiel's thuddingly literal direction, some surprisingly cheap-looking production design, and everyone's smug satisfaction with not much more than endless arbitrary twists just makes this feel lazy on top of being shockingly dull. The only reason anyone remembers this movie is for the shot of the girl's ass in the trailer.
