This has got to be one of the worst action/comedy/thrillers I've ever seen. Whoops! Did I spoil it for you?
A recently dumped Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) goes on vacation to Europe with her parents (Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara) -- Mr. and Mrs. Kornfeldt. She meets the man of her dreams, Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher). He is reluctant to tell her he is an assassin. He works for the good guys, but he's an assassin-for-hire, nonetheless. Well, to be fair, he did tell her. She was just in a dead-drunken state of sleep and wasn't paying attention.
They get married and live happily ever after. Almost. It seems the neighbors are hired assassins -- well, the untrained, unprofessional kind. They're all just in it for the money. Someone has put out a multi-million dollar hit on Spencer.
What could have been and should have been an hilarious romp is boring at best. There are very few fun moments. Catherine O'Hara steals every scene she is in. (That's a plus!) Tom Selleck is fun. (Another plus.) But if you're not a raving Ahston Kutcher fan, I'd give this one a miss. Unless you want to punish yourself while waiting for the Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara bits.
