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
Second and final of two [to date, November 2016] cinema movie collaborations of actress Katherine Heigl and director Robert Luketic. The first feature film was The Ugly Truth (2009) and the later picture Killers (2010). The two productions were both comedies and both premiered in consecutive back-to-back years. See more »
The dates are not consistent throughout the movie - Mr. Kornfeldt can be seen reading a Wall Street Journal from June 3, 2009 (with the headline "Congress Helped Banks Defang Key Rule"); the overnight package Spencer receives from Holbrook is delivered on "29APR10"; when Jen and Spencer are looking through Henry's computer (supposedly on a Saturday) the day and date can be seen on the screen to the 17th and a Friday; and the fliers the Baileys are passing out advertising the block party indicate that's it's on the Fourth of July.

Let's start of with saying that Robert Luketic knows how to direct, the pace in the movie is good, he never takes this film to serious and he know how to film a couple of good scenes.
Katherine Heigl has shown to us that she can be funny in comedies, check the ugly truth if you need proof. Ashton Kutcher however.. is not good. Which hurts the film because he's the leading man in this film. They've made better actors then him do straight to DVD films.
I don't want to spoil much about the movie, however the trailer practically tells the whole story and shows some of the best bits of the film. But the pace is good, sometimes it's funny and the action was good. But it has all been done before and in better films.
So it's not rubbish, but it's not good either. I recommend you wait until it's released on DVD and hope that Knight and day will be better.
