Movie Review: Knight and Day
It is the action packed, Action/Comedy story of a government agent who is trying to expose a double agent. Tom Cruise is labeled a rogue agent who must be stopped. He's just plain crazy. He chooses Cameron Diaz in an airport as an easy mark to temporarily and unwittingly use as a mule for a top-secret technology. It just goes all kinds of crazy from there. Nothing goes exactly according to plan and Cameron is forced to go along for the entire ride.
And of COURSE it ends up romantic. It must, right?
My husband and I both enjoyed it. But don't be expecting anything realistic. Every stunt in it could never happen in the real world. But that's not usually why we watch movies anyway. The humor is campy, the action is non-stop. Nothing too deep. But good, reasonably clean fun. It's PG-13, primarily for the violence and the complicated story line. Maybe a curse word here and there. I give it an average rating. A fun diversion, but not too memorable.
