Movie Review: "Knight and Day"

5. "Knight and Day" is a pleasant enough romantic action movie in the style of "Bird on a Wire" or "Romancing the Stone."

4. Tom Cruise plays a secret agent on the run and Cameron Diaz is the grinning goofy girl who gets entangled in his version of "Run, Lola, Run."

3. Cruise and Diaz sizzle in their second pairing (the first was the wretched "Vanilla Sky"), which is noteworthy given that Cruise is hardly the box office bounty he once was and Diaz is 12 years removed from her breakout-role in "There's Something About Mary."

2. This may dent my manly-man armor, but I could have done with a little more kiss-kiss and a lot less bang-bang.

1. Still, the flick manages to be good, entertaining fun that hinges on the stars' money shots -- Cruise looking intense over the top of a pair of sun glasses and and Diaz's grin, perhaps the most cheerful and charismatic in cinema -- especially when she's wearing a bikini.
