Quotes

William Cobb: Could this guy be more of a mouth breather?
Michael Cleveland: Well I think his everyday Joe appearance is all a part of his cover. Think about it, you'd never suspect a guy who looks like that is an assassin. Which makes him the perfect assassin.
William Cobb: You really think this guy's the Ghost?
Michael Cleveland: I'll bet you a year's salary he kills the president tonight.
William Cobb: Easiest 17 grand I ever made. Yeah.

This is a good movie, watch it!
11 November 2016 | by nheppdingSee all my reviews

Obviously it's not great, but it's definitely totally fine, give it a watch!

I love Kevin James, I'll watch anything with this guy in it. Do you like other movies with Kevin James? Because this is another one. The action is well done and I laughed out loud a few times. There are worse ways to spend a Friday night, I promise.

Kevin James is a writer who people think is actually an assassin but he's so good at writing he becomes the assassin. Someone truly zany came up with this one and it's laugh out loud wild ride funny. It also happens to be shot super nice, which is a total plus!

Seriously, it's on Netflix streaming right now, what are you waiting for?!
