    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    What The Thomas Crown Affair has to sell audiences is a fantasy of the life of the super-rich who jet off to Martinique on the spur of the moment, and the super-smart who operate outside the rules. show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Examiner

    McTiernan's film mines what substance it has from its two stars, but is admittedly about keeping up its own appearances. show more
