After their retirement nest egg goes belly up, Richard and Kate (Brosnan and Thompson) decide to steal a $10 million diamond from the man responsible for the scheme that set them back. While they're forced to put aside their bickering to accomplish this outlandish task, of course, this time spent together seems to reignite the spark that made them fall in love. Watch the trailer!
