The Love Punch (2014)
Starring Pierce Brosnan, Emma Thompson, Timothy Spall, and Celia Imrie
Directed by Joel Hopkins
This comedic caper first lacks any comedy. With the exception of maybe a chuckle or two, The Love Punch falls completely flat. It's also a flick that's much too obvious and transparent with the bickering Richard and Kate inevitably being set up to fall in love again from the film's opening scenes. Brosnan and Thompson (along with Spall and Imrie) try to make the most of things, but when they're tethered to lame jokes that play off their age -- lack of bladder control being used multiple times -- they can't save this lame duck.
The RyMickey Rating: D-
