Trailer for the Comedy GAMBIT with Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz

Here's an international trailer for the caper comedy Gambit, which is a remake of the 1966 film that starred Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine. The story centers on Harry Deane, a London art curator who enlists a Texas Rodeo Queen in a scheme to con the richest man in England. The remake was directed by Michael Hoffman from a script written by Joel and Ethan Cohen (The Big Lebowski, Fargo, True Grit.) It stars Colin Firth, Cameron Diaz, Alan Rickman, Sir Tom Courtenay, Stanley Tucci and Cloris Leachman.

Here's a short synopsis:

An art curator decides to seek revenge on his abusive boss by conning him into buying a fake Monet, but his plan requires the help of an eccentric and unpredictable Texas rodeo queen. 

The movie is set to be released sometime in 2013. It looks like a solidly fun movie. I pretty much like everything about it except Cameron Diaz. Do you think it looks like a good movie?
