Plunkett & Macleane

A ballroom scene features period moves set to 1990s dance music in this assaultive anachronist's dream inspired by the careers of two 18th-century English highway robbers: a professional thief (Robert Carlyle) and a dissipated gentleman (Jonny Lee Miller) who scopes out wealthy targets at social functions. The two have to deal with a nemesis, an ambitious, sadistic law-enforcement official (Ken Stott); a damsel in distress (Liv Tyler); and an unwitting accomplice (Alan Cumming), a stereotypical fop who introduces them to all the best marks. This buddy movie grows on you—and it may have the distinction of featuring the largest number of costume changes ever for a member of a central duo. Jake Scott directed a screenplay by Robert Wade, Neal Purvis, and Charles McKeown.
