Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: A curiously charmless caper that squanders a starry cast and screenplay by the Coen brothers, this Gambit doesn't pay off.

Common Sense Says
So-so remake of '60s caper has slapstick, brief nudity.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Gambit is the 2012 remake of a slapstick comedy from 1966. There's partial male nudity, and there's a fantasy sequence in which a wealthy business executive is shown standing and sitting behind his desk naked, with well-placed objects there covering his private parts. A character loses his pants, and it looks as if he peed in them. There's also the occasional swear word (lots of variations of "s--t"), and, in one scene, front desk clerks in a hotel are led to believe that two characters are openly discussing prostitution; one of the characters seems to be going from room to room and sleeping with guests. A character gets punched in the face on two occasions, and a woman in a hotel room passes gas, not knowing that someone else is in her room.
