Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz did a majority of the stunts on their own. Both Cruise and Diaz are avid drivers and have experience in doing sharp turns and 180's. See more »
June Havens (Cameron Diaz) wears a Rolex Submariner Date in the film. But her stunt double wears a Rolex Sea Dweller Deep Sea. They look almost identical, but the SDDS is much thicker as it's designed to go to much greater depths underwater, and has no magnifier over the date window. See more »
We saw the Saturday sneak preview for Knight and Day, cautiously optimistic for a film that has had almost no reviews despite the fact it releases on Wednesday. To avoid spoilers, I'll make this simple:
The Good * Tom Cruise turns in a star performance, and Diaz holds her own. * Story has several twists and turns * Walks a fine line between comedy and action well (for the most part) * I never looked at my watch once and the film running time flew by
The Not So Good * CGI is weak and there is a lot of it * Can get a little campy from time to time * Predictable
Overall this was quite entertaining. If your expecting an Oscar caliber film you will be disappointed. If your looking for some above average summer fun buy your ticket without hesitation!
