Theatrical Release: June 4, 2010


While traveling with her parents in the French Riviera, Jen Kornfeldt meets the man of her dreams, the dashing, handsome Spencer Aimes. Three years later, 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’s also 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.

Dove Review

Although a few young women chuckled at some of the banter on screen between Spencer Aimes (Ashton Kutcher) and his new wife Jen (Katherine Heigl) in “Killers” at the screening I attended, much of the story was slow and plodding and featured a lot of sweetness and fluff until about the middle of the film. Once Jen learns her husband has previous ties with the underworld then action sequences take over for close to an hour and a lot of people are killed by means of knives and shooting. This movie is way too violent for us to label it as “family friendly” and in addition it has strong language and a lot of sexual comments in it as well. Therefore we are unable to award our Dove Seal to this movie as a family-friendly film.
