Why is this called knight and day? does anyone know?
Anyway this is a so-so movie. Why it attracted Cruise and Diaz I do not know. It begins well but runs out of steam halfway through and just seems to limp along after that. There is no ending and what passes for an ending is completely unsatisfactory. On the plus side Cruise is on top form here. I've never gotten what makes him a star but I have to say in this film Cruise is charming.
Diaz is quirky and fun and when they do get a good scene together it works. Unfortunately you've seen all the best bits in the trailers.
This might be worth renting on DVD or watching on TV but its not worth the cost of a ticket.
