Excerpt: While on vacation with her overbearing parents, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) meets the good-looking Spencer (Ashton Kutcher). One thing leads to another and three years after getting married, Jen learns that there's more to Spencer than he seems - he's an assassin! And though he retired to be with her, a $20 million bounty has been put on his head forcing them both on the run from all the killers trying to collect it.
Excerpt: A romantic comedy cannot survive on good looking leads alone, as evident by the likes of Love Happens Bride Wars and now Killers . Directed by Robert Luketic, of Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth ‘fame’, and written by Bob DeRosa (screenwriter of the critically panned The Air I Breathe ) and Ted Griffin ( Ocean’s 11 ), the latest Katherine Heigl vehicle seems to be having a bit of an identity crisis.
Excerpt: Over the last few years, Katherine Heigl has faltered mightily picking romantic comedies. With "27 Dresses" and "The Ugly Truth," the actress submerged herself into pure stupidity, slapping feminism across the face by playing a chain of subservient female characters who set aside self-worth for the chance to seize a man. With "Killers," Heigl stares down Ashton Kutcher, another vapid thespian with limited acting mobility.
Conclusion: Heigl and Kutcher make a cute enough couple, but a cringeworthy opening and ludicrous (even by the standards of the genre) ending mean that this is one to watch only when your brain is switched to the “off” position.
Excerpt: Hemliga agenter, hemliga för sina närmaste och ibland även hemliga för sig själva, kan vara riktigt roliga. Jag minns med förtjusning när Geena Davis hemmafru i The long kiss goodnight får ett anfall i köket och börja klyva grönsaker med dödlig precision – en minneförlust hade gjort att hon glömt bort att hon en gång varit en fatal agent med rätt att döda. Konststycket upprepades av Matt Damon i Bourne identity.
