The plot: Mild-mannered art curator Harry Deane grows tired of the constant bullying of his boss, Lord Lionel Shabandar, and concocts an elaborate swindle to teach his employer a lesson. With the help of his loyal friend and forger, The Major, Harry travels to Texas to meet rodeo queen PJ Puznowski and asks her to join them in the con with the promise of a small fortune if she agrees to pose as the owner of a priceless Monet painting which Shabandar is desperate to acquire.

"Gambit is like drinking cheap, warm champagne from a plastic cup."


"Middling in every respect."

The Hollywood Reporter

"This contemporary London caper movie falls far short of its potential even as a lightweight comic romp."
