Storyline

Spencer Aimes is just your average, undercover, government-hired super-assassin accustomed to a life of exotic European locales, flashy sports cars and even flashier women. But when he meets Jen Kornfeldt, a beautiful, fun-loving computer tech recovering from a bad break-up, he finds true love...and happily trades international intrigue for domestic bliss. Three years later, Spencer and Jen are still enjoying a picture-perfect marriage - that is, until the morning after Spencer's 30th birthday. That's when Spencer and Jen learn he's the target of a multi-million dollar hit. Even worse, the hired killers have been stalking the happy couple for years, and could be anyone: friends, neighbors, the grocery store clerk, even that crabby old guy shuffling across the street. Now Spencer and Jen are on the run for their lives. As their suburban paradise turns into a paranoid game of dodge-the-bullet, they must find out who wants Spencer dead and why, all the while trying to save their marriage... Written by Lionsgate

Goofs

The "dossier" for Jasper Levenaux on the CIA computer at the beginning of the film reads "After years of paltry assistance, the United States last year provided $67 million in counterterrorism aid for training, intelligence and equipment. Assistance will more than double this year, Gen. David H. Petraeus, head of U.S. Central Command, said Friday in Baghdad before visiting Yemen the next day." Which is taken from a January 3, 2010 article in the Washington Post about Al-Qaeda in Yemen. See more »

Pretty good romantic comedy for young couples
14 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I am surprised this has such a low rating. It's not the best movie I've seen but it was funny. My wife and I left thinking it was very cheesy but very funny too, which is what we were hoping to get out of it.

The parts most people refer to as "boring" in the film are what my wife and I really enjoyed. It was like looking at ourselves on the big screen. They got the "we've been married 3 years" struggles and fun times down pat. I especially liked the awkwardness of the son and father-in-law scenes (so true).

Of course the action and plot had some serious holes and needed to explained a little more, but we went for a romantic comedy, and that's what we got. You get to see 2 good looking people (that obviously never actually go through these situations) going through the same conversations/arguments/experiences that all us young couples have.

I liked it.
