Did You Know?

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 »
Continuity: (at around 1 min) During the car chase scene, Rose starts out driving and then during the chase she switches seats with Victor. The camera moves to the car chasing them and then cuts back to Tony sitting in the back. From behind you can clearly see Rose still driving.See more »
[Ferguson is in traction]
Hector Dixon:How is your assistant?
[He indicates Mike, who is lying in a coma next to Ferguson]
Ferguson:They want to turn him off.
Hector Dixon:Hmm... perhaps that would be for the best.
Ferguson:No, he's been paid through the end of the month. And anyway, he's company.

An interesting and entertaining comedy., 20 June 2010
Author: danielkratky from United Kingdom

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.
