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

Goofs

When the spy planes start bombing Roy's private island, June grabs her purse, which contains her and Roy's cell phones, and they dive into the ocean to escape. In the next scene, she received a call on her cell phone, which should have been ruined after being immersed in seawater. 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 »

A FUN Ride, Cruise is Back!
20 June 2010 | by cmcmanus60See all my reviews

We saw the Saturday sneak preview for Knight and Day, cautiously optimistic for a film that has had almost no reviews despite the fact it releases on Wednesday. To avoid spoilers, I'll make this simple:

The Good * Tom Cruise turns in a star performance, and Diaz holds her own. * Story has several twists and turns * Walks a fine line between comedy and action well (for the most part) * I never looked at my watch once and the film running time flew by

The Not So Good * CGI is weak and there is a lot of it * Can get a little campy from time to time * Predictable

Overall this was quite entertaining. If your expecting an Oscar caliber film you will be disappointed. If your looking for some above average summer fun buy your ticket without hesitation!
