Synopsis from DVD Cover:
He's tall, dark and handsome with a hint of mystery. What more does Jen (Katherine Heigl) need to know about Spencer (Ashton Kutcher), the man who's just swept her off her feet down in the French Riviera? Well, maybe that he's a professional spy whose special talent is assassination. But no matter, neither bullets nor bombs nor bad guys with big guns can keep these two from living happily ever after - if they can get through the day alive - in the outrageous romantic hit comedy that will slay you.

Quick Review:
If you go by the vacation plans of Jennifer "Jen" Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl), vacationing with your parents (Tom Selleck and Catherine O'Hara), especially in France, is the cure for a bad breakup. Of course, it helps when you come across a shirtless dude named Spencer (Ashton Kutcher) in an elevator, and after the two go on one date, he's so taken with her that he abandons his job as a killer for the C.I.A. and decides to settle down. Now, three years later, Spencer and Jen's suburban bliss gets blown to smithereens-kinda literally-when his former colleagues try to drag him back in, he discovers there's a big ol' bounty on his head, AND he has to deal with his wife, who has just learned about his undercover vocation.

I'm always up for just about any kind of film you want to throw at me, be it comedy or drama or horror or spy flick. Having said that, there is nothing in "Killers" that made me want to keep watching. It's not funny, romantic, or even an interesting thriller, and even with mostly likeable stars in Kutcher, Heigl, Selleck, and the vastly underused O'Hara and a premise that, while overdone, still usually holds SOME charm, it's never able to crawl out from under its own preposterousness and make us care whether these characters dodge the bullets or not.

It's not SO bad in the beginning-Kutcher and Heigl start off with some romantic promise, and there's that familiar feeling that even though it's all going to go the same route as many films before it, it may be a harmless and fluffy waste of time. But no. It's a dull lead up to the awkward and unsatisfying bit where Jen finds out about Spence's agent-dom and once her suburban dream of wedded bliss is blown just at the worst time. Usually, movies with their adrenaline-soaked action and over the top situations worn on their sleeves like this are enjoyable simply as mindless larks with no sense of reality, but here, plots are too ridiculous and poorly executed even for that small modicum of entertainment. When everyone (yes-everyone) starts trying to off Spencer, we as a gullible audience are supposed to blandly nod and smile and accept it as funny and exciting with no regard for plot or reason. Also, despite any early hope for a saving grace in romance, Kutcher and Heigl have no chemistry whatsoever, and though both are decent in the right roles, these are obviously not those roles, and you get the feeling that they just want this all to be over as much as we do.

Special Features on the DVD aren't much, but they're OK, and include an 11-minute Behind the Scenes Making Of thing with the cast and crew called "Killer Chemistry", a short Gag Reel, and about 15 minutes of Deleted, Extended, and Alternate Scenes.

In Conclusion:
A big mess of bad editing, ridiculous story, and utter lack of chemistry, if you missed this one in the theaters, don't feel bad-and don't try to right the wrong by watching it on DVD, because it doesn't get any better.
