Knight and Day review – plus, Tom Cruise: love him, or loathe him?

I know it’s not fashionable to say it, but I love Tom Cruise. I’ve loved him ever since Risky Business, I loved him in Top Gun, Born on the 4th July, Valkyrie and of course Jerry Maguire. Yes he had me at hello.

So I couldn’t wait to take No 1 Son to see Tom’s new movie, Knight and Day . His co-star in this one is Cameron Diaz and it’s absolutely brilliant.

Cameron plays June who meets Roy (Cruise) as they’re preparing to board a plane. I can’t really tell you too much about the plot because it will spoil it, but let’s just say  June, who repairs cars for a living, quickly learns that there’s MUCH more to Roy, who is a secret agent,  than meets the eye, and finds herself on the ride of her life. There are some huge stunts, the script is very funny,  a fab soundtrack, and both Tom and Cameron are excellent. Both the boy and I loved it.

What I liked about the movie also  is that neither star is afraid to show their laughter lines. How refreshing is that?

Which brings me back to Tom. What do you think – love him, or loathe him? I’d love to know.
