Entrapment (1999), directed by Jon Amiel, is a film starring Sean Connery and Catherine Zeta-Jones. It was greatly criticised by several critics, with one complaining that the movie was "dedicated to one woman's ass" due to a close-up of Zeta-Jones' posterior being prominent in the trailers for the film. Complaints also arose from Malaysia, with some claiming that the movie depicted Malaysia as a backwards country, and was factually inaccurate. This led to the movie being banned in Malaysia and Singapore. Supporters of the film saw it as no more than a lightweight caper film along the lines of Charade.

Virginia Baker (Zeta-Jones) works for an insurance agency, attempting to capture Robert MacDougal, (a legendary art thief, played by Connery) by making him believe that she is a thief herself, thus entrapping him. Unknown to Baker's employers, however, she is in reality a master thief herself who hopes to enlist MacDougal's help in pulling off what is quite literally the Crime of the Millennium.

Entrapment Movie Review at Hollywood Video (1203 words)
Entrapment is a piffle of a film, unremarkable in almost every aspect other than its stars' acres of charisma.
It is. Entrapment is absurdist escapism in its most classic form, a glossy throwback to the age where the gentlemen jewel thieves of To Catch a Thief and Gambit trotted the globe plucking emeralds and ingenues from exotic ports-of-call.
The movie's plot, intricate as it is, is secondary to the chemistry between the two stars, each of whom has enough electricity to power a small city.
