#32. Knight and Day (Part 1 of the epic "Lame-Plane" trip) - Review

Knight and Day poster / banner

On the plane ride to South Korea I had many wonderful choices of films to choose from. Toy Story 3, Cyrus, and other legitimately good films were at my fingertips. So, with so much to choose from I decide to take a chance. I completely missed Knight and Day when it was in theaters earlier this year. I am willing to out myself as a Tom Cruise fan. I still remember the days when Cruise wasn't a gamble, but a guarantee. He takes a lot of shit from the critics and the public for his personal life and his somewhat manic personality, but I don't care. I have been able to keep Tom Cruise the man seperated from Tom Cruise the actor, but its been a couple years since he has repaid my loyalty with a good film. Sadly, Knight and Day does nothing but add more strain on my already streched thin loyalty.Cameron Diaz and Tom Cruise promoting Knight and Day

I am not going to waste my time with the plot. I didn't expect this film to be original, because I am sure we have seen 1000 versions of this film before, but I did expect it to at least be fresh. James Mangold is a great director (Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma) so I thought this movie would at least have some great action set pieces... nope.

Hahaha this review rocks! I have flown 4, soon to be 5 times in the last 2 weeks and I have been faced with these same difficult choices: Toy Story 3, or The Karate Kid (2010). So many difficult choices, so little time. I had not intended to watch this, and your review seals that deal for me. Thanks :-)
PS - Cameron has always been "on the fence" with me when it comes to her hot-factor. But I will say that I agree...lately she is looking really awful. Remember when Meg Ryan entered this phase in her life? I know it's hard to imagine now, but I recently re-watched Sleepless in Seattle, and she was at one time, truly the girl-next-door. So cute and nice to look at. Anyway, at least Cameron's still got the breasts :)
