1. Killers (2010)
This romcom opens in one of the most beautiful places on earth: Nice, France, where the rich frolic on the beaches and arrive on private jets and yachts. With its red-roofed villas, a palm-tree lined boulevard, boutiques, cafes and restaurants, Nice attracts holidaymakers from all over the world. Including assassins. Starring Ashton Kutcher (That ‘70s Show, The Ranch) as assassin Spencer and Katherine Heigl (Grey’s Anatomy, Knocked Up) as lovelorn woman Jen traveling with her well-off parents, the film shows that je ne sais quoi that makes it easy to fall in love with and in Nice.
Spencer gets tangled up in a mission to kill while Jen tries to untangle herself from her protective and overbearing parents (played by the legendary Tom Selleck, and Catherine O’Hara of the Home Alone franchise). The moment she meets him, shirtless and with that boyish charm, Jen is smitten. The two go on a date, and even before the aperitif Spencer remotely blows up a helicopter. They fall in love and we flash forward to the American suburbs three years later.
They are now married and Spencer is retired from the killing business. Unfortunately, someone has put a $20 million bounty on his head and suburbia is never the same again. If the couple thought the neighborhood block party was annoying, they’re in for the big surprise as unassuming neighbors turn out to be assassins trying to kill him.
