A vacationing woman meets her ideal man, leading to a swift marriage. Back at home, however, their idyllic life is upset when they discover their neighbors could be assassins who have been contracted to kill the couple.
A bounty hunter learns that his next target is his ex-wife, a reporter working on a murder cover-up. Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure.
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
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 »
...but not as tough as not falling asleep during this movie... well, i guess it's a good movie to see if you're looking for some easy entertainment. it has it's moments, but the plot is too simple and predictable- it just gets on boring you on and on. it starts as a regular rom/com- a girl goes for a vacation, meets mr perfect, and than- trouble comes. trouble of various shapes, sizes and guns.
Heigl acting is quite annoying, which is a shame, because i know she can do better. it's hard to believe that someone as hot as Kutcher would take any interest in such an irritating person. for all you girls there i can see one up side- Kutcher runs without his shirt for several minutes:)but that's IT.
after seeing Grosse Pointe Blank you expect some standards from assassin-comedies. maybe next time...
