    Can 1999's The Thomas Crown Affair be as fab as Steve McQueen's 1968 original? Well, that's a hard ask. The newer flick, starring Pierce Brosnan in the role of the millionaire who steals only to entertain himself, chances things up by making him an art thief, and Rene Russo is smoking hot as the insurance investigator who turns out to be his match both in the cat and mouse game and the bedroom. Denis Leary is also good as the cop on the case. But here's the thing: Despite the slick capers and the onscreen chemistry on show, there's a lot of time wasted on sequences that run too long, usually when Crown is at play, or at love. There's a sex scene in particular that goes on so long, it becomes gratuitous, and it's followed by an extended date/vacation that feels like they just sent the actors sight seeing and used all the footage. Onscreen, the characters, in a glider, soar. But the film itself sags all through the middle. Shame. 6 years 2 months ago
