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

Trivia

Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) is completely oblivious to the world of espionage and hand-to-hand combat, and by her own admission, that suited Heigl just fine. She laughed: "I'm not a big stunt person and I can go into all the reasons why I'm really uncoordinated, I'm not terribly athletic. So I said, 'I think you guys should be prepared for someone who can look a lot like me doing these very exciting things'." See more »

Quotes

Spencer Aimes: We've been married for three years and we've never been more than five minutes away from your parents. They're always coming over and your dad's all... all... Well, uh, this is how the Kornfeldt's load the dishwasher. And, mow the lawn clockwise 'cause that's the Kornfeldt way. Take this piece of coal, stick it up your kiester, squeeze it real tight like we do, and you'll and make a Kornfeldt diamond.

"Real people in the real world" should really spend their money renting Grosse Pointe Blank instead
13 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

First, the good things: Rolfe Kent's music was very good through much of this film. The setting of the early part of the film (presumably largely shot in Nice, France) was quite lovely to see. Other than that, well... this movie was painful. The chemistry between Heigl and Kutcher was limited to her giggling at the first sight of him with his shirt off, and even then felt forced. I was feeling bad for all the actors involved, but least for Kutcher and Heigl who seemed committed to forcing a laugh out of intensely dull witted dialogue in situations which have been worked into much better films (i.e., Mr. and Mrs. Smith, True Lies, Grosse Pointe Blank). And by the way, "jessie-36," I, Michael Phillips and you are all "real people in the real world" (so I would believe having not met you or Michael Phillips so far as I know). You are also, guess what, now a critic. The destruction of newspapers as a valid critical forum has more to do with corporate economics than anything else. Celebrating the demise of the local newspaper sounds like so much whistling past the graveyard rather than a people's overthrow of those awful, awful critics. So, I'm afraid "jessie-36" that you are a critic (you should be if you're going to theaters to "watch over 100 movies a year" for free (!)). Based on your review of Killers, however, you may just not be a very thoughtful one.
