★★★★ review by Kirstie on Letterboxd
This was an unexpected gem!
It’s been a while since I watched any Ashton Kutcher films and I forgot how much I love him!
Comedy, a lil action and romance. Perfect!

★★★½ review by Don Anelli on Letterboxd
Overall, it was a decidedly decent offering that really could've been a lot of fun. The biggest issue here is the fact that the film never really embraces it's action-roots here with so much screen-time set for the two's romance and budding relationship woes that are placed as a higher priority here instead of the rather fun and enjoyable action set-ups that transpire throughout the last half here. That these are placed in the latter part of the movie does tend to make this one so weak and boring in the first part to where it's hard to really stay invested in the goings-on here as they go about their lives together being removed from their former lives and none of this is the slightest bit interesting on what's going on at all until it gets to the mid-way point when the action starts, even though most of it's not really that thrilling. Outside of a car chase through the suburban neighborhood and a few shoot-outs later on that do manage a few exciting moments, the action here isn't all that great either and gets by more on the frenetic pace it goes through rather than any out-and-out exciting moments which really leaves this one coming up short overall. It's a little funnier than expected and that helps it along but overall it just seems lacking.

Scavenger Hunt #26
Task #14: Watch a film with an actor from "That 70s Show"
Jen (Katherine Heigl) had no way of knowing that Spence (Ashton Kutcher) was a trained killer or that there's a bounty on his head that their neighbors want to collect, but hey, no relationship is perfect. Mix of rom-com and violent actioner doesn't mesh as smoothly as the filmmakers wish it did and even with a lot working against it (its polarizing leads, a hastily written script resulting in a ridiculous final explanation), it works as a mindless popcorn movie, if not exactly True Lies. Tom Selleck is amusing as Heigl's overprotective dad.
Terrific score by Rolfe Kent.
