"Evelyn" is a good, heart-warming drama. And "Laws of Attraction" is very reminiscent of Remington Steele. I guess it depends on what you're in the mood for. I know you asked for only one recommendation - LOL!! But it's so hard to pick just one!!
Yeah it really depends what kind of film you're looking for or in the mood for.
Laws of Attraction and After The Sunset are lighthearted fluffy fun. The Greatest and Evelyn will make you feel and cry, Bag Of Bones will make you squirm and jump, and Mamma Mia will make you sing (off key) and dance.
My favorites from the last decade are The Matador (a tour de force performance), The Ghost Writer (probably the best film) , Seraphim Falls (I like Westerns, especially dark revisionist ones that use nature and this is probably Pierce's most atypical role where he out badasses Liam Neeson) and Married Life (black comedy which would probably have been more successful if it went blacker but is still a gem with a fine comedic performance)
OK, I feel better. I have seen Evelyn, The Matador, and the one called Butterfly on a Wheel. I did see Bag of Bones too, and LOVED IT, though I forgot about it because it was on A&E. I know someone who worked on Seraphim Falls so that is first on my list, and then Ghost Writer.
By the way, I didn't mind him in Mamma Mia. I think he did a great job with his big song, SOS.
THANK YOU everyone for the suggestions.

I think the last a Steele film was mentioned was during his Seraphim Falls Press Junket and Pierce said if it was made he wouldn't be playing Steele (but maybe Chalmers or another cameo) so I didn't find it such an attractive project. I think FOX was ridding high on the financially successful DVD release at the time but nothing came of it
Weatherly has always been charming and funny, though not elegant and sophisticated. He's too American for Steele and in his 40s now too old. It would be extremely difficult to find another actor in his late 20s early 30s with the same qualities Pierce brought to the role.
Much of Steele was old fashioned for the 80s, now many of those attributes are extinct in that age group to the point of wondering if those actors would want, be capable of or be attractive to a new audience acting that way.
Then again there is the lovely Matt Bomer on White Collar who is playing a Steele-ish character .
