KNIGHT AND DAY is such a kick--from the first accidentally on purpose meeting of Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz: he never looked better; she was never more charming. They have instant chemistry and apparently extremely supple limbs given the amount of tumbling around they're about to do. He's not who he says he is, she's just a normal five foot ten inch blond with a killer bod and no apparent life. No matter--this is a sexy, glamorous, summer fantasy -- a cinematic roller coaster ride for grown ups.
The charismatic pair ricochet from Boston(you'll recognize every corner) to Brooklyn to a desert island to Salzburg, flipping on and off trains and planes, in and out of cars and hotel rooms, parachuting, motorcycling, fleeing the bad guys (the good guys?)during insanely choreographed chase sequences, while doing many of their own wildly entertaining and often hilarious stunts-especially Cruise who never looked better--did I already say that? My 16 year old daughter agrees. The script makes enough sense to keep you interested, and the non-stop action gives their buoyant charm even more lift.
Sit back, relax, and take the ride.
