Trivia

The Mary Sue.com held invitations for an exclusive New York City screening of the film. They partnered with Bond Influence to host an exclusive screening of the film a few days before the theatrical release, complete with snacks, drinks, and a Q&A with Geoffrey Fletcher himself. Bond Influence let in guests at 7PM to grab a glass of wine or a soft drink, along with oatmeal cookies and a very abundant candy spread which included Violet and Daisy branded lollipops. See more »

Goofs

On her first trip for bullets, Violet gets a call from someone with directions to the "closed" hardware store. As a paranoid professional assassin, she does not wonder who it is or how the person knows what she is looking for, how they know exactly where she is and what she is doing at that exact moment.

Decent
11 November 2013 | by pauldnboerSee all my reviews

Violet & Daisy is about 2 teen girls assassins who take on one last job in order to buy some dresses they really want. This is the first movie I watched from writer/director Geoffrey Fletcher, reviewing his profile he didn't do much else beside this movie and you can kinda tell.

The movie is somewhat disjointed and the script feels like it's been written by a 12 year old girl. Strangely enough the somewhat childish dialogue and behaviour of the characters combined with the well-done action/violence kinda works for this movie and I was quite sucked in. The 2 teenage assassins played by Alexis Bledel and Saoirse Ronan are well cast and perfectly fill the role of naive assassins.

I wouldn't recommend this movie to anyone expecting an action flick or a deep/moral story. If you're just looking for an easy to watch movie with some good-looking young woman you'll probably like it 7/10
