movie Killers

Killers is a movie starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl. They play a couple who meets in France and ends up getting married. That might sound like a spoiler but the movie covers a lot of relationship ground in the first half hour.

When they first meet Spencer (Kutcher) is a hit man employed by a super shady government agency. Jen (Heigl) is on vacation with her parents after a breakup. Basically, the two end up together. He retires from the hitman business to be with her.

The story then flashes forward a few years. They live in a nice house in the suburbs. They have good jobs, etc.

Then, Spencer's life as a hitman comes back to haunt him when his old boss makes contact. His wife, who didn't know about his previous line of work, is displeased. They go on the run from would-be assassins while trying to solve the mystery of why people are attacking them.

Killers is equal parts action movie and romantic comedy. There are gunfights, car chases, and things blowing up but also some entertaining relationship issues.

The two cast members who really made this movie were Tom Selleck and Catherine O’Hara (mom from Beetlejuice). They played Jen's parents. Dad is sort of overprotective. Mom is an oblivious lush who is completely hilarious.

There were some familiar faces plucked from some favorite TV shows of mine: Kevin Sussman (Big Bang Theory), Casey Wilson (SNL), Alex Borstein (Mad TV), and Rob Riggle (Gary Unmarried).

Killers gets A for awesome with extra points for the oftshirtless and delectable slice of man meat that is Ashton Kutcher. Applause for pretty!
