A British re-do of a 1993 French original, Jonathan Lynn’s movie resembles what might happen if Richard Curtis tried to make a black comedy, gave up halfway through and instead decided to play for knockabout chuckles.
Bill Nighy is a career assassin whose One Last Job is to take out Rose (Emily Blunt), a gorgeous con artist he promptly falls for.
The increasingly ludicrous plot is grounded by turns from its overqualified Brit-cast: Rupert Everett, Martin Freeman, Eileen Atkins and Rupert Grint, holding his own as an apprentice hitman.
Daft, disposable but likeable enough.
