Overview

Three years after settling down with the woman of his dreams, a former government assassin discovers there's a price tag on his head, and that his number could be up at any minute. Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kucher) was the man the government called on when they needed someone taken out on the sly. Fast, clean, and efficient, he always got the job done, and enjoyed the many perks that came with traveling the globe in search of his targets. But somewhere amidst all of the fast cars and exotic women, Spencer fell in love with Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl), a carefree computer expert on the mend from a relationship gone sour. Flash forward three years, when Spencer and Jen are happily married and living the domestic dream. On the heels of Spencer's 30th birthday, he and his happy wife discover that their life of bliss could come to a violent end at any second -- someone has put a multi-million-dollar contract on Spencer's life, and the hired killers who have been tracking him could be anyone from the checkout girl to the neighborhood curmudgeon. Time is running out for Spencer, and as the race to uncover his assassin intensifies, so too does his paranoia. With his in-laws making life miserable and the threat of death lurking around every corner, Spencer struggles to maintain appearances while staying out of the crosshairs, and keeping Jen safe from harm. Catherine O'Hara, Tom Selleck, and Martin Mull co-star in an action-packed comedy thriller from director Rob Luketic (Legally Blonde, The Ugly Truth).

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
The action rom-com Killers is like True Lies diluted with Sunny D and wine cooler -- it's a reasonably acceptable but undeniably crappier version of a story you've seen before. The necessary parts for this story are one blissfully suburban couple, one husband harboring a secret life as a deadly, covert agent, and one crazy set of circumstances that blow the guy's cover and serve as a loose metaphor for the truths people keep hidden from their spouses in marriage. Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl play the couple in question, Spencer and Jen, who get together in Nice, France, while Spencer is taking out his latest target, and Jen is getting over a breakup while on vacation with her parents (Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara). When they fall in love, Spencer decides to leave his old job behind and marry Jen, switching gears to run a construction company, and happily settling down just a few minutes down the road from Jen's somewhat overbearing folks. Of course, when Spencer's old boss contacts him, hoping to bring his old point man back into the fold, that's when seemingly innocent neighbors all bust out their automatic weapons and picket fences start getting blown up, sending Spencer and Jen on the run, trying to figure out who wants to kill them as Spence tries his best to explain the former life he never told his wife about. There are funny moments in Killers, which is no surprise with Catherine O'Hara on board playing a baby boomer with a drinking problem, and like most comedies these days, just about every supporting role is played by a sketch comedy vet (in this case, Rob Riggle and Casey Wilson). But the handful of laughs doesn't make up for the fact that this is a plot we've seen enacted before so much better. Maybe it's not fair to compare, but Killers is certainly no True Lies or Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It is, however, good for a giggle, so if you like your comedy light and your action even lighter, this movie could still give you what you want.
