Young people will probably love “Killers”, if only because I hear star Ashton Kutcher is quite popular on the Twitter with the kids and their multi-tasking smart-phone thingamagigs. Of course, I’m not sure how “Killers”, or as it’s known around my neighborhood, “Knight and Day” Lite is going to do with the rest of Americana. But combine the star power of Heigl with Kutcher, and I suppose there’s enough audience there on opening weekend to make this a moderate hit. We shall see. New clips below to get you all atwitterin’.
Trying to recover from a sudden break-up, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) believes shell 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 Spencers 30th birthday when bullets start flying. Literally.
It turns out Spencer never bothered to tell Jen hes 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.
