Knight and Day
I went into this movie with low expectations, and I guess is that sense I wasn't disappointed. Tom Cruise is some type of government spy except now the government is after him. And Cameron Diaz plays the cute girl that somehow gets wrapped up in the situation. There was an attempt at a plot, but I can't even say for sure what exactly it was. Something this a perpetual energy battery and its creator?
People kept getting drugged and passing out throughout the movie. And since the character had no idea what was going on, as a viewer we didn't either. Which meant we kept waking up in random places without any real explanation. Except that the were able to film on an island! And in the Alps! And in South America!
I didn't really get the title either. Tom Cruise's character's name was Knight before he changed it to a secret spy identity. So I get that's where the Knight comes from. (There's also a toy knight he buys at the start of the movie.) And I guess since Cameron Diaz is his opposite she's day? It really wasn't explained, and I don't feel the title fits the movie.
There was action, and a few romantic bits. It wasn't horrible, but its not even a film I'd want to watch in repeats when it airs on tv. I guess if you're looking to escape the heat by being in an air conditioned theater you could see this. But I really think there are better options out there.
