Plot summary

(2 votes)

"Gin" is an insurance investigator, "Mac" is an international art thief who likes a challenge. A priceless Rembrandt is stolen from an office: Gin thinks Mac is the thief, so she is sent to investigate him.

She tries to entrap him with a proposition, to help him steal a Chinese mask from a well-guarded palace. They travel to Scotland, and plan the complicated theft.

Just after they complete it, Mac accuses Gin of planning to sell the mask, and turn him in. Gin tells him she's planned an even bigger job, and persuades him to help her rob $8 billion from the International Clearance Bank, in the Petronas Towers in Kuala Lumpur.

The plan works, but they set off all the alarms, and narrowly escape. The next morning, Mac nearly hands Gin to the FBI, but has another plan to let her go, as he's getting old and she's got her life ahead of her.

Together, they then decide on a third job.

Continuity mistake: When Cathrine Zeta-Jones and Sean Connery are robbing the bank, she puts up the retinal goggles to her face, preparing to scan it into the computer. However, in the next close up shot, the face the goggles are on is not hers, it is wrinkly and the eyebrows are fuzzy and not defined.

Trivia: The street that Sean Connery is parked in waiting for Zeta-Jones to leave the antiques shop, is the same one that Hagrid and Harry walked down in the Philosopher's Stone when they are heading for the Leaky Cauldron.
