Action Romantic Comedy - This crowdpleasing film is equal parts action film, romantic comedy,
and domestic satire. There is quite a bit of violence, but some of
it is played for dark humor, and the overall comedy in the film
takes a bit of the edge off.
PROFANITY: 3 S-words, a number of others. SEX/NUDITY: Brief clothed sex; sex talk. VIOLENCE: Largely bloodless but brutal fights, shootings. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Frequent alcohol and tobacco. ACTION: Fights, shootouts, explosions, car chases. COMEDY: Verbal humor and comic situations; sometimes suggestive, sometimes dark.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Above Average This is one of those films where the pluses and minuses almost exactly counterbalance each other.
