Tom Cruise and Cameron Diaz star in Knight and Day

Knight and Day isn't going to be winning any big awards, but if you want some light and fun summer entertainment it's a decent way to spend 109 minutes.

Cameron Diaz plays June Havens, a fun-loving tomboy type who's innocently trying to get home to help with her sister's wedding preparations when she runs into Tom Cruise's Roy Miller in the airport. He's charming, good looking, and soon has June smitten. But it doesn't take long for June to discover that Roy has a few secrets.

Before she knows it, June is tangled up in a crazy web of international espionage that involves high-octane (and life-threatening) adventures and high-speed globe-trotting, and in order to stay alive she has to trust anything and everything Roy says - the only problem is that he might be completely insane.

The plot is a little cliched and implausible, but in a movie like Knight and Day it doesn't really matter. Cameron Diaz is her usual charming self and Tom Cruise reminds us why we fell in love with him so many years ago (before the couch-jumping and Scientology pushing began). The two have great chemistry and together they charm.

All-in-all Knight and Day is a sexy romp that keeps you entertained, if not guessing, for almost two hours. Not bad for 12 bucks.
