Entrapment

Since the theaters are currently filled with teenage comedies, its a welcome change of pace to find an adult caper.

Sean Connery, still good looking and classy, stars as Robert MacDougal, an international art thief.  Intelligent insurance investigator, played by beauty Catherine Zeta Jones, is hot on his trail.  She convinces Mac that she is also a thief and has a big job for the two of them to pull off together.

The first theft of a Rembrandt painting is intricate and well done, but after watching numerous rehearsals of a plan to avoid laser beam alarms, the actual theft of a costly mask, is tedious.  It does however, give Jones a chance to show off her fabulous figure in a form-fitting catsuit.

The film dances around the issue of Connery being almost 40 years older than his young co-star, letting her be the aggressor softens that somewhat.  He rebuffs her advances by saying that he can't get involved while working with her and the romance between the two moves slowly.

Connery oozes charisma and he can still make a girl's heart skip a beat.  He's the main reason Entrapment is so stylish and entertaining.
