A writer is mistaken for an assassin when trying to sell his book.
11 December 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First off, this is a good movie. This is an entertaining movie. This is a funny movie. This is a movie that makes you smile.

No, this isn't the best movie of all time and no it's not going to win an Oscar. But, actually Andy Garcia puts in a very notable performance. He makes his character come alive. Garcia obviously comes from the school of thought, "There are no small roles."

There is an innocent quality to this movie and I think above all else this is the reason I was left with such a good feeling while watching it. The story moves along well and at a good pace. The story is also believable, for the most part. There are a couple of times in the plot where the movie is asking us to suspend our disbelief a bit too much, but by the time this happens the story worked in some conveniences which makes this more palatable.

This isn't a perfect movie, but the bottom line is: it is very enjoyable and well made. It knows what it is and doesn't over extend it's reach. And as far as the Netflix original movies with Adam Sandler's company go: it was the best so far!

I also feel this movie would have done very well in the box office if it was in theaters.

It has comedy, it has action, romance and good story telling. It's a clever, little lighthearted movie and it deserves a higher rating then it got on here. I honestly feel people are forgetting how to review movies. A movie doesn't have to be dark or brilliant to be good.
