a movie that feels like a candy bar you left in your back pocket on a hot day. It's got a great package thanks to the marquis talents of Cynthia Nixon, Pierce Brosnan, Kate Beckinsale and Jeff Bridges, but in Webb's eager clutches, it turns to sweet mush.

[Pierce] Brosnan is especially good: he's been chasing critical respect ever since he signed off as James Bond.
