He’s tall, dark and handsome with a hint of mystery. What more does Jen (Katherine Heigl) need to know about Spencer (Ashton Kutcher), the man who’s just swept her off her feet down in the French Riviera? Well, maybe that he’s a professional spy whose special talent is assassination. But no matter, neither bullets nor bombs nor bad guys with big guns can keep these two from living happily ever after – if they can get through the day alive – in the outrageous romantic hit comedy that will slay you.

This film as well balanced and the characters are amusing without being too campy. Sure, you do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure where the story is going. However, it is fun just the same watching it unfold and finding you saying, "Stay in the care." Lots of action, bullets and unabashed name recognition for "Maalox"
I only saw the Blu-ray version so I cannot compare to others. Do not for get to look at the Special features before re-watching the movie.

There are enough holes in the story to strain spagetti. If you try to think about it logically for even a moment you'll feel morally bound to hate this movie. Yet it was very entertaining. There was definitely some magic between Heigl and Kutcher, and though much of this movie was unbelievable, their relationship wasn't. Add to that some really good humor, action, a desperate situation, and the charisma, magnetism and attractiveness of the stars, and you've got a fun comedy/love story.
Catherine O'Hara can pretty much do no wrong in my book, and she was hilarious as Heigl's lush of a mom. Tom Selleck was great as her dad.
We were entertained all the way through, and found watching this movie to be a great way to relax and pass some time. I would certainly recommend this movie if that's something you're looking for.
Catherine O'Hara - playing the drunk mom...yet again...Just like she did in Orange County. BUT..She pulls it off and is funny doing it. So it's not so bad.
Yes, it can be said it is similar to Mr and Mrs Smith. But in this story, only HE is the ex-hitman and she actually ends up doing pretty well (bumbling the whole way) but still keeps up with him, staying alive.
That's about all that I felt was bad.
Who is upset that they got to see Katherine Heigl in lingerie? Or girls, you got to see Ashton not only in swimwear, doing action scenes and he played a guy that no matter what, he just kept trying to do the right thing for his wife? His character is a GOOD guy.
Cameo's by supporting cast/comedians was a nice change of pace.
Deleted scenes, Extended scenes, Alternate scenes, Behind the scenes and a Gag reel - Are not bad. There was enough there to feel I spent my $$ ok and wasn't shorted much like many other Bluray films these days.
I feel the 3 star reviews and lower are just not fair.
4 stars in my review.
Meanwhile Katherine Heigl as beautiful by shy and straight-laced Jen, is on vacation in Nice with her parents (Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara). In the elevator on the way to her room, she runs into shirtless Spencer who is on his way to the beach and is unable to resist following him there. Spencer is completely aware that she is taken with him, but he's just as interested and he asks her to meet him later for a date.
The two fall madly in love, and Spencer renounces his spy world, marries Jen, and moves to her home in the states.
Cut to three years later. The two are still happily married, living in suburbia. Jen works for a high-tech company, and Spencer owns a construction company. But suddenly, with no warning, everywhere Spencer turns, someone is trying to kill him, starting with a doofus guy he has worked with for years and viewed as his best buddy. A $20 million bounty is on his head, and Jen is at risk just being around him.
I've been hoping for years that Ashton Kutcher would make a romantic comedy where the laughs weren't cringe-worthy, and this was it. I loved his character and the way he played him. I believed him as a spy, and I believed him as nice-guy husband who would do anything to make his wife happy--and to keep her safe.
I also thought Katherine Heigl was great. She is just wonderful at romantic comedy, and the chemistry between her and Ashton was a delight. Her evolution over the course of the movie from freaked out at finding out her husband's history in the middle of a barrage of bullets, to stepping up to the plate and fighting the bad guys with him was wonderful.
I also thought Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara were just terrific in this movie. They were funny and believable at the same time.
All in all, I had a wonderful time with this movie and I might even watch it twice--which is something I almost never do.
