...The two stars prove to be a smashing romantic match....OBJECT is a shrewdly observed and intoxicating romance...
Rolling Stone
Mar 7, 1991
Rating: B- -- Unfolding as a comedy of manners and a morality tale, the film is not preachy and there is no suggestion of redemption. The text may be slight but it's imbued with ambiguity--and entertaining too. Full Review

...An elegant farce....Listening to Malkovich put the most arch twist on the most innocent words is a special kind of pleasure...

Rating: 3.5/4 -- By the end of the film, the plot has been worked out to everyone's satisfaction, but the plot isn't really that important. What is important is the ways that people love one another. Full Review

Product Description:

Jake and Tina are a sexy, jet-setting couple, madly in love and living far beyond their means. They plot the phony theft of Tina's prize sculpture to collect insurance. Unfortunately, they are not the only crooks and a real thief snatches the sculpture instead!

Plot Synopsis:

Jake and his girlfriend Tina reside at a ritzy London hotel... which they can't afford. They have in their possession a small statue sculpted by Henry Moore, a gift from Tina's estranged husband. The financially troubled Jake is entertaining thoughts of selling the artwork -- worth $50,000 -- to solve some of his money problems. But a wrench is thrown in the works when a maid enamored with the figure steals it, although she is unaware of its high value. This puts a wedge in Jake and Tina's relationship, as each believes the other has stolen the statue...
