PG-13

Entrapment is a 1999 film starring Catherine Zeta-Jones and Sean Connery. The film is an exciting and sexy tale about the best art and antiquities thief in the world, Robert MacDougal (Connery). After a priceless Rembrandt painting is stolen, with all fingers pointing to MacDougal, insurance investigator Virginia Baker (Zeta-Jones) is assigned to track him down. She decides the best way to catch a thief is to become one herself. She engages MacDougal in a game of entrapment that he just can't refuse, one that involves stealing $8 billion. The film is filled with numerous twists and turns that continuously keep the audience wondering if who people are who they say they are. The film is filled with suspense and action and oozes sex and seduction in all the right places. It's a story about a heist, but more importantly about a love developed between two people from opposite worlds.

Metacritic Score

  • 80

    The New York Times Elvis Mitchell

    Combine two stars of this wattage with a lot of techno-talk and elaborate heist plotting and you get plenty of good reasons to pay attention.

  • 70

    Variety Todd McCarthy

    Preposterous whimsy that sort of gets by thanks to lustrous settings, slick production values and, especially, its ultra-attractive stars.

  • 60

    Los Angeles Times Kenneth Turan

    While the film glistens a bit now and again, a closer look reveals you've been diverted not by a diamond but by a genuine synthetic zircon.
