Art expert Harry Deane (Firth) enlists a forger (Tom Courtenay) and a Texan rodeo champion (Diaz) in a plot to defraud his odious employer, media baron Lord Shahbandar (Rickman). However, despite meticulous planning, the caper seems to veer off course.
A few smiles and some fraying charm, but big laughs are missing. This just about gets away with it rather than romps off with the loot.
