Storyline

Looking forward to attending her sister April's wedding, the commitment-shy tomboy and classic cars aficionado, June Havens, catches a plane to Boston. Then, out of the blue, she crosses paths with the handsome and charming stranger with the killer sense of humour, Roy Miller, and just like that, June's life will never be the same again. Now, as the dashing man of intrigue plunges June into an excitingly risky world of high-speed car chases, deadly man-to-man fights, and lethal stray bullets, dangerous, no-nonsense adversaries are after the mismatched duo, hell-bent on retrieving a tiny state-of-the-art device that's worth millions. But, who's this Roy Miller guy? Is he truly one of the good guys? Above all, could he be the one? Written by Nick Riganas

Trivia

The film's production partners, New Regency and Dune Entertainment, offset financing for the film by paying Tom Cruise a lower advance fee than he normally received. According to the Los Angeles Times, Cruise received $11 million for Knight and Day (2010), not the $20+ million he usually receives. See more »

Goofs

June is told that the 1970 Pontiac Grand Prix has the "longest hood ever made." That is true of the 1970-72 models, but the car pictured is a 1969 model. See more »

Alternate Versions

An 'Extended Cut' is available in Region 2 (UK and Europe), Region 3 (Asia) and Region 4 (Australia & NZ). It adds eight minutes of footage, mostly extended versions of existing scenes, as well as a new opening scene that better establishes June Haven's profession as a mechanic. The 'Extended Cut' was released on Video On Demand in North America, but as of January 2011, it has yet to receive a Region 1 release. (See the FAQ page for more details.) See more »

User Reviews

 
Surprisingly enjoyable, escapist entertainment
21 June 2010 | by jgarrowSee all my reviews

Critics feared the worst when word surfaced that re-shoots, re-writes and re-edits for this much-delayed, much-troubled film were still going on as late as May 2010 - barely seven weeks prior to its scheduled release. Pre-screenings were limited, and thumbs were primed to point down. But guess what? The finished product is surprisingly enjoyable - particularly the rollicking first hour. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are obviously having a blast, and anytime they are on screen, the movie's energy and fun level pegs the meter. The break-neck pace can keep the audience guessing about where Cruise's character is dragging Diaz's reluctant heroine off to next. Kudos to the leads for not carrying the movie with their effervescent acting, but also for doing many of their own stunts.
