Only one operative has been awarded 16 purple hearts and only one guy is man enough to still sport a mullet. In the 10 years since his fiancée was killed special op MacGruber has sworn off a life of fighting crime with his bare hands. But when he learns his country needs him to find a nuclear warhead that?s been stolen by his sworn enemy Dieter VonCunth (Val Kilmer) MacGruber teams up with his trusty sidekick (SNL?s breakout star Kristen Wiig) and an uptight lieutenant (Ryan Phillippe) to get the job done.

Killers has been murdered by most film critics, and the box-office receipts haven’t been too impressive either. But that’s kind of a bad rap. Granted, it isn’t likely to make many year’s best (or even month’s best) lists, but this is an entertaining little diversion that at the very least offers an appealing cast, a few laughs, and some cool chase scenes. Katherine Heigl plays Jen, who, having recently been dumped by her boyfriend, is vacationing in Nice with her parents (Tom Selleck and Catherine O’Hara). Enter Spencer (Ashton Kutcher), a hired assassin (hey, it’s a comedy) who happens to be on the scene for a job. (Amazon)
