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
With its combination of comedy, romance and action, in summary, the filmmakers hoped the film will appeal to a wide range of audiences. Director Robert Luketic said: "I hope people will be wildly entertained. I think it's a great date movie. The romance is thoroughly engaging and real, and then we have the action and intrigue that men will relate to." Actress Katherine Heigl said: "It's kind of an outrageous yet still realistic look at marriage and what a marriage can go through. The thing I love the most is the humour. And there's a surprise ending. I don't think anyone will see it coming." Actor Ashton Kutcher said: "The thing about this movie is it offers a little bit of everything. It's exciting. It's a thriller. But it's also funny, and at the heart of it, it's a relationship movie. So I think that there's an array of movies that people like to go see that are in this film. It will get your heart beating, and then maybe break it a little bit, and then put it back together." See more »
Jen's white "cute dress" in the club has a looser fit than when she and Spencer get to the hotel room and as the day goes on clothes either hold their shape or get looser not tighter, but the fit is obviously different. See more »
We've been married for three years and we've never been more than five minutes away from your parents. They're always coming over and your dad's all... all... Well, uh, this is how the Kornfeldt's load the dishwasher. And, mow the lawn clockwise 'cause that's the Kornfeldt way. Take this piece of coal, stick it up your kiester, squeeze it real tight like we do, and you'll and make a Kornfeldt diamond.

Let's start of with saying that Robert Luketic knows how to direct, the pace in the movie is good, he never takes this film to serious and he know how to film a couple of good scenes.
Katherine Heigl has shown to us that she can be funny in comedies, check the ugly truth if you need proof. Ashton Kutcher however.. is not good. Which hurts the film because he's the leading man in this film. They've made better actors then him do straight to DVD films.
I don't want to spoil much about the movie, however the trailer practically tells the whole story and shows some of the best bits of the film. But the pace is good, sometimes it's funny and the action was good. But it has all been done before and in better films.
So it's not rubbish, but it's not good either. I recommend you wait until it's released on DVD and hope that Knight and day will be better.
