Watch Gambit - Alternative Versions.
I watched this film on release night with my fiancée. We had previously
seen a couple of trailers for the film and thought it looked funny and
interesting, although on the day I was disturbed to see find such a low
rating here on IMDb.
*Disclosure, I am not connected to the film's production or any of the
cast, and have no agenda here other than offering an alternative point
The basic plot is already known in advance: that Colin Firth wants to
con his evil boss using a beautiful Texan as bait. He travels to meet
her accompanied by his friend and co-conman, Major Wingate. After
watching her in a rodeo they go to a local bar to make the approach.
The Major asks Colin how much is he going to tell her? He answers: "Oh,
only enough for her to play her part". And the same is true of the
audience. You are only told enough to a) identify with Colin's
character and his motivation, and b) follow the plot to come.
We're then treated to a brief 'Ocean's 11-style' précis of how Colin
imagines the con will play out from start to finish. Needless to say,
no plan ever works out exactly as imagined!
The humour is very dry, never in-your-face, and this isn't the kind of
film to hand you gags. Laughing our loud isn't the point. Instead
there's a mixture of situational comedy, miss-understanding comedy,
wordplay, and great interaction between the characters. Some of the
best jokes are the ones where you have to smile ruefully when things go
wrong on a bad day. I thought at the time that the screen-writing was a
lot like Richard Curtis, and could easily imagine Rowan Atkinson as the
Instead the best joke is Colin Firth himself, playing a little man, in
Cameron Diaz's words, instead of a larger-than-life character for a
change; playing it straight, rarely smiling because he's not very happy
(he wants revenge, remember) and not trying to seduce the very comely
Cameron Diaz, who also plays a wickedly funny character without being
cast as the comic side-kick.
But, from a critics point of view, I guess, there's not much
originality. You can perceive homages to other films; old Ealing-
comedies like the Ladykillers, where the subject matter isn't funny but
there is some great humour. And I'm not referring to the re-make, which
I didn't like.
I'd like to watch this film again at a later time and see if I can. It
might grow on me and become a minor classic, or it might drop to
mediocre. Either way, if you watch it you have to appreciate it for
what it is, rather than what it isn't. And it probably helps if you
have a temperament where you can see the funny side in unfunny
