| Decent!
A remake of the 1966 film of the same name, 'Gambit' is a fair comedy, that offers some decent laughs in its short & sweet running-time of 88-minutes. Keep your expectations in check, and have some fun!

'Gambit' Synopsis: An art curator decides to seek revenge on his abusive boss by conning him into buying a fake Monet, but his plan requires the help of an eccentric and unpredictable Texas rodeo queen.

'Gambit' isn't laugh-out-loud funny, which it definitely should've been. Nevertheless, the film has a consistent pace & some of the jokes involving the protagonist's series of unfortunate events, tickle your funny bone.

Joel & Ethan Coen's Screenplay is fair, but it needed more humor, for sure. Michael Hoffman's Direction is royal. Cinematography & Editing are pitch-perfect.

Performance-Wise: Colin Firth is the life of the show. He's fantastic, enacting a comedic role with flourish. Alan Rickman is alright. Cameron Diaz is sporty. Stanley Tucci is wasted. Tom Courtenay is cute.

On the whole, 'Gambit' is a safe bet to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon.
