Knight and Day! Greatest spy movie ever...depending on your IQ! 7.1!

IMDB Knight and Day Review 6.4!

I imagine this film could have only been better if Tom Cruise was not in it.  Possibly a lot better.  Cameron Diaz really wasn't much help for the matter either, and that's a shame because this movie good have been great  (I think Chris Tucker and Jackie Chan should have done this). No, the truth is it didn't really stand a chance.  In this one Tom plays a renegade spy trying to save the world and does everybit of it in a ridiculously charming fashion.  It was just way over the top and I can only imagine many found it amazing.  Cameron goes from being a clueless ditzy blonde to gutsy super spy material over the course of their brief adventure.  She played the part quite convincingly.  After one impossible scenario after the other, (even Bond fans would vomit at this), they save a nerd and his battery.  But in the end, my wife and I found the whole mindless debacle pleasantly entertaining and so won't you.  Enjoy it over and over again if you dare, I dare you!
