Storyline

Spencer Aimes is just your average, undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt, a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love...and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss. Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage - that is, until the morning after Spencer's 30th birthday. That's when Spencer and Jen learn he's the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbors, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage... Written by Lionsgate

Goofs

When Spencer points the Glock at the head of his friend after the fight and the friend is taped to the chair and after they get done talking about the dog you hear the sound of a hammer being cocked. There is no external hammer on a Glock pistol so it cannot be thumb-cocked. See more »

Mrs. Kornfeldt: Excuse me, Stewardess? Three chardonnays, please.
Mr. Kornfeldt: None for me, actually. I like to stay awake and alert.
Jen Kornfeldt: None for me, either.
Mrs. Kornfeldt: Okay, so, just the three chardonnays then.

Kill Reasoning
16 April 2011 | by (Fraggle Rock) – See all my reviews

I've heard a fair amount of bad things about 'Killers' and therefore my expectations were low but I still expected to laugh. That said, it's not as bad as the worst movies of its kind that released in 2010 (an example would be 'Bounty Hunter'). While 'Killers' is by no means a great movie, it did make me laugh. Most of the intentional humour (thanks to Katherine Heigl and Catherine O'Hara) and unintentional humour (thanks to Ashton Kutcher and the horrendous writing) work very well. Now the story is an atrocious mess. There is barely any (story or character) development and plot holes are abundant here. Does it work as a spy thriller? No. Does it work as a romantic flick? No way. It only works as a comedy for reasons mentioned above. The action sequences are awkward. Katherine Heigl once again shows us that she can easily carry off comedy. However, she seems to be getting typecast in these kinds of films. How about being part of something clever for a change. Ashton Kutcher is okay. He too seems to be getting typecast. Here he's easily overshadowed by Heigl. Catherine O'Hara is superb as Jen's laidback mother. To sum it up, 'Killers' is quite the bad movie but it's a funny one. I didn't mind it much for a one-time watch.
