After seeing the movie trailer this summer, I considered seeing Killers in the theater but someone wanted to see other movies every weekend it was in the theater so I ended up having to wait until DVD to see Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher team up.
To be honest, I didn’t miss out not seeing Killers at the movies but saying that doesn’t mean I didn’t find the film to be entertaining at times. It’s the unbelievable parts that had me shaking my head.
Killers on DVD
Starring: Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher
On DVD: September 7, 2010 Running Time: 93 minutes
Rated: PG-13 Genre: Romantic Action Comedy
Here’s what you need to know:
Jen (played by Grey’s Anatomy lead and Knocked Up/The Ugly Truth star Katherine Heigl) is a daughter vacationing in the French Riviera with her overprotective parents (played by Tom Selleck and Catherine O’Hara) after recently becoming single. She strays from her parents after faking a bout of stomach flu and meets Spencer (played by Ashton Kutcher), the man of her dreams. Cut to years later when she is now living in Atlanta with her new hubby, yep, Spencer.
Spencer has supposedly given up his life as a contract killer since meeting Jen and now works in an architectural firm. But one day his former boss, Holbrook, comes calling in the form of a “can’t ignore” postcard.
After finding out her husband’s past, Jen becomes his sidekick in order to stay alive because it seems every where they turn someone is trying to grab the $20 Million bounty placed on Spencer’s head.
The movie was fun at times. And watching scenes of Nice when you can’t be there on a weekend getaway is a sure delight. Sadly even if this suburban newlywed couple only kills bad guys, their hi-jinks and the situations they find themselves in with unexpected characters seem a bit far fetched more times than not.
If you *heart* Ashton, his shirtless scenes will help you through Killers. If that doesn’t do the trick, the scenes of Tom Selleck as a skeptical father and Catherine O’Hara as a convincing drunk and oblivious mother are pretty enjoyable.
