Synopsis: Trying to recover from a sudden break-up, Jen Kornfeldt (Katherine Heigl) believes she'll 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 Spencer's 30th birthday when bullets start flying. Literally.

It turns out Spencer never bothered to tell Jen he was once 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 neighbourly appearances, manage the in-laws…and work out some major trust issues.

Verdict: Killers starring gorgeous Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher is a funny and entertaining movie with nothing to not like; especially that Spencer (Kutcher) doesn't wear a shirt for most of the movie.

In the opening scene, we find that Jen (Heigl) recently broke up with her 'geeky' boyfriend and is utterly embarrassed about holidaying with her parents after the breakup. Nothing is going right for Jen, until she meets Spencer. Embarrassed that she is holidaying with her parents, she tells Spencer her father (Tom Selleck) is actually a Russian pervert she met on the plane before passing out from drinking too much.

Spencer is a "blah blah, with a licence to blah blah" who falls in love with nervous Jen and plans to give up his previous lifestyle of hot models, exquisite locations and killing 'bad' guys for the typical suburbs lifestyle and construction job. That is until everyone (even the unexpected) turns on him shortly after his 30th birthday.

Audiences will be giggling all the way through this movie. Overall, Killers is a light-hearted comedy that is perfect for a relaxing Friday night at the movies.
