Sorry about this but I have to give a great deal of credit for my affection for this movie to Jennifer Lopez. It is not very often that I enjoy a movie solely for the actors, and it is not exclusively the case here, however if she were not in this movie it would have received a significantly lower score. the story is well thought through, Clooney and Lopez do a great job with a decent script and the casting in general is really what makes this movie so successful. There is enough to make this movie different from the mainstream cops and bad guys flick and there are plenty of laughs to go along with the generously understated action. This is in part what makes the movies so much fun to watch. It would have been tempting, no doubt, to end up with a “Big Hit” clone and to cash in on big time action sequences and special effects, but the mixture of clever writing and the right actors makes this a film well worth seeing even without the gratuitous explosions.

Rating 8 The acting and casting make this film. Very enjoyable and engaging.
Theatre / Video Video. It would have been nice to see it on the big screen, if only for a giant Jennifer.
Rewind / Return I have seen it a couple of times. I would watch it again with no hesitation.
Highlight Locked in the trunk, the wave from the elevator and her “romp” with the ex-boxer.
