A vacationing woman meets her ideal man, leading to a swift marriage. Back at home, however, their idyllic life is upset when they discover their neighbors could be assassins who have been contracted to kill the couple.
A bounty hunter learns that his next target is his ex-wife, a reporter working on a murder cover-up. Soon after their reunion, the always-at-odds duo find themselves on a run-for-their-lives adventure.
Spencer Aimes is just your average, undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt, a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love...and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss. Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage - that is, until the morning after Spencer's 30th birthday. That's when Spencer and Jen learn he's the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbors, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage...Written by
Tom Selleck's character Mr. Kornfeldt refers to himself as having been a pilot. In the earlier cinema movie, High Road to China (1983), Selleck portrayed a World War One ace fighter-pilot called Patrick O'Malley. See more »
The license number of the Escalade as Jen drives away from Spencer's office is DY2702. When she swerves to avoid Olivia's Mustang it has changed to JW1826. After Jen hits the Mustang, the Escalade's plate is back to the original number and the Mustang has the JW1826 plate when it explodes. See more »

Fast Paced Fun
Not every film is supposed to make you review your life and become a missionary. This is pure escapism but without heaps of gadgets and blatant CGI.
It looks good , the stars look great and the supporting cast do what they're supposed to and a little more. The script made me laugh a lot more than the slightly overrated 'Hangover'.
Katherine Heigl was a surprise for me, a grown up Marilyn, and since seeing Ashton Kutcher in 'Dude', I was happy to see a different side. Yes the story IS simple but most plots are and it's the delivery that counts.
Yet there were still some unpredictable moments. I was entertained and would definitely recommended this to unwind to after a stressful day at the office.
Great date movie too.
