Storyline

Samantha Caine, suburban homemaker, is the ideal mom to her 8 year old daughter Caitlin. She lives in Honesdale, PA, has a job teaching school and makes the best Rice Krispie treats in town. But when she receives a bump on her head, she begins to remember small parts of her previous life as a lethal, top-secret agent. Her old chums in the Chapter are now out to kill her so she enlists the help of a cheap detective named Mitch. As Samantha remembers more and more of her previous life, she becomes deadlier and more resourceful. Both Mitch and Charly proceed to do the killing thing, the bleeding thing and the shooting thing.

Trivia

When Mitch and Trin pull their scam on the "Man in bed", Mitch and 2 other actors pretend to be police detectives. Ironically enough the room was full of actors who have portrayed cops (at least once) in popular movies and television shows. Rex Linn (man in bed) portrayed a Detective on "CSI: Miami". Melina Kanakeredes (Trin) portrayed a detective on CSI:NY. Shawn Doyle (Bum Cop) portrayed a detective in the movie "Frequency." Samuel Jackson (Mitch) portrayed a cop in the movie "The Negotiator."

Yes, Have a Good Night
24 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A small-town schoolteacher (Geena Davis) slowly begins to realize that she has suffered amnesia and really use to be a secret government assassin! Soon, there are men after her and a small-time private detective (Samuel L. Jackson).

This was action-packed, with some great special effects and really funny one-liners (especially from Jackson). Although the action may get a little silly at times, who cares? After all, aren't movies meant to be a good time?

Craig Bierko is fun as a ruthless villain. The movie itself was an all-around good time. Just don't expect to have to think too much about it because then, if you take it too seriously, then the movie actually won't be fun but stupid instead.

This movie doesn't deserve to be called stupid or any other bad name.
