If you're a chess player, you'll know that a gambit is an opening move designed to bamboozle your opponent and take a strategic and psychological advantage. This is the intention of buffoonish art curator Harry Deane. Tired of the humiliation he suffers at the hands of his outrageous boss Lionel Shahbandar (played by Professor Snape himself, Alan Rickman), Deane dupes his wealthy employer into purchasing a fake Monet, using attractive cowgirl PJ as a distraction. Inevitably, the scam is soon jeopardised by Harry's bumbling incompetence and an unanticipated romantic development. This screwball comedy is scripted by the Oscar-winning Coen Brothers.
