Trying to recover from a sudden break—up, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) believes she'll never fall in love again. But when she reluctantly joins her parents on a trip to the French Riviera, Jen happens to meet the man of her dreams, the dashing, handsome Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher). Three years later, her seemingly impossible wish has come true: she and Spencer are newlyweds living the ideal suburban life – that is, until the morning after Spencer’s 30th birthday when bullets start flying. Literally. It turns out Spencer never bothered to tell Jen he's also an international super—spy, and now Jen's perfect world has been turned upside down. Faced with the fact that her husband is a hit man, Jen is determined to discover what other secrets Spencer might be keeping – all the while trying to dodge bullets, keep up neighborly appearances, manage the in—laws... and work out some major trust issues. And you thought suburban life was easy. Starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher, directed by Robert Luketic from a screenplay by Bob DeRosa and Ted Griffin and story by Bob DeRosa, Lionsgate’s KILLERS is a hilarious, unpredictable action comedy about love, marriage and serious firepower.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Killers is a lifeless romantic action comedy that might as well have been concocted in a broken beaker, given the paucity of chemistry between the lead actors.Claudia Puig, USA Today, 07.07.2010
Bob DeRosa and Ted Griffin wrote the script, whose plummeting one-liners leave no actor unscathed.Andrea Gronvall, Chicago Reader, 06.24.2010
There is a potentially rich satirical situation there, as everyone in the couple's dull planned community turn out to be undercover killers. But whatever germ of an idea there is, it's quickly killed by witless writing and migraine-inducing direction.Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger, 06.24.2010
It's pretty much dead in the water as soon as a shirtless Kutcher tries to play suave and utters some terrible French in his first attempt to woo his co-star.Jason Anderson, Toronto Star, 07.30.2010
