Did You Know?

Trivia

The character played by Bill Nighy holds guns with just a thumb and middle finger, with his index on the trigger. This unusual grip is because he suffers from Dupuytren's contracture, which means he can't straighten the ring and little fingers on each hand. See more »

Goofs

When Victor is massaging Rose's feet, in the close ups you can tell that a hand double is used because all 5 fingers are straight however Bill Nighy has Dupuytren's contracture which means that the last two fingers on both hands are permanently pointing inwards. This is visible in the wide shots. See more »

An interesting and entertaining comedy.
20 June 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this film and found the story to be original and funny throughout. Emily Blunt plays an extremely sexy con-artist who crosses paths with an up-tight Bill Nighy playing a professional assassin hired to kill her.

The characters are likable and well-cast. Bill Nighy and Emily Blunt strike up a modern day love-story that is unconventional and yet somehow totally believable. The family bond that is established with Rupert Grint as the adopted son worked very well and was charming.

If you want to see something different, interesting and funny then I really recommend giving this film a chance.
