Big screen superstars Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz come together in this fun, action-packed thrill-ride that will keep you on the edge of your seat. When a small-town girl named June (Diaz) meets a mysterious stranger, she thinks she's found the man of her dreams. But she soon discovers he's a fugitive super-spy, who thrusts her into a thrilling cat-and-mouse chase that spans the globe. As the bullets and sparks fly, June must decide if her "Knight" in shining armor is a dangerous traitor or the love of her life.
Knight and Day has action by the boatload, cheeky wit, unexpected double-crossing, sexual tension, and the blinding smile of its star, Tom Cruise. In short, what more could you ask of a rollicking good-time movie? Knight and Day, which also stars the irresistible Cameron Diaz as Cruise's superspy's ultimate foil, channels the best elements of earlier films like Mr. and Mrs. Smith, Mission: Impossible, the Bourne films, and even a little of Duplicity's sophistication. Mostly, though, Knight and Day is about moving things along merrily, if not completely coherently, as the two stars tangle, and tussle with trust issues, in a completely believable, compulsively watchable way. Cruise plays Roy, an on-the-lam spy (who may have had some kind of psychotic break--or who may in fact be the only person telling the truth); he runs into the winsome June (Diaz), who gets caught up in Roy's mad dash to escape the cabal of federal agents on his tail. "No one follows us," Roy announces to a terrified diner crowd as he moves to make his escape with June, "or I kill myself--and then her." While Knight and Day, directed by James Mangold, has more than its share of high-speed chases, hails of bullets, and explosions, it works far better as a romantic comedy--for the chemistry between Diaz and Cruise is delicious, palpable, and believable. So grab a date and an extra-large popcorn, and get ready for a sweet and fun Knight and Day. --A.T. Hurley

Is it incredibly fun, clever, and worth seeing? Also yes!
Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are both incredibly charismatic actors, and they bring this charisma full on to this film. Add to that gorgeous locations, fun action sequences, and a fast-moving (thought not particularly credible) plot, and you have a good way to spend a couple hours. This is a great date / netflix & chill movie because everyone will find something to enjoy in it. Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz are both likable and share an easy rapport. His chemistry with her isn't the powerful, palpable sexual one he has with Rebecca Ferguson in the latest Mission Impossible movie. But it is friendly and effortless. Cameron Diaz in particular is enjoyable. She does a great job showing the bewilderment and fear of a normal person who gets caught up in crazy circumstances. And while she does need to get rescued many times and spends much of the movie dragged around by the hero (not something I enjoyed), she does have some smarts of her own and eventually grows into someone who is just as kick ass as him.The humor in the film is clever and light-hearted, but there are also nice, intimate moments for the two leads where you can see the unexpected depth in the characters. You can especially sense a wistfulness in Cruise's character, a longing for a life he has missed. There is no deep drama here, but just enough substance to give the characters an extra dimension.
Fun, enjoyable, and a movie that both men and women will like. Recommended.
The next thing she knows, she's on a plane, trying to impress a stranger she likes, named Roy. And then she goes to the restroom to primp and comes back to discover that Roy has killed everyone on the plane except the two of them.
Since that everyone includes the pilot, they have a problem. Roy does his best to land the plane, but it couldn't be called anything but a (barely) controlled crash.
Which pretty much describes the rest of the movie. It's one gigantic controlled, slow-motion, never-ending crash, with a mystery (is Roy the bad guy, or a good guy caught in a bad situation? and what the heck is going on?), a romance, and just about everything you can think of.
This is an exciting, roller-coaster ride of a movie.
of Diaz as a seeming ding-a-ling (but that running joke is eventually blown away by CD's character as smarter than she seemed to be).
I'd seen K&D before at a friend's home, liked it, so bought the DVD to re-see on occasion. Its humor never fails
to amuse or its action titillate. It sure seems Cruise does many of the precarious stunts, and they're pretty edgy.
I like movies that I can see, enjoy, put away and come back in awhile and see again with that 'see again for the first=time feeling.
KNIGHT & DAY pulls that trick off. So far, for me, three times so far . . .
