The surrogate family schtick is a little contrived, but mostly enjoyable (aside from the inevitable romance that didn’t feel quite right in its huge age gap), thanks to a great set of amusingly contrasting characters played with charm and wit by the three leads (Freeman’s devilish bad guy is great as well). A simple on-the-run romp plot brings lots of slapstick laughs in addition to a delightful thread of dark comedy surrounding the central “hitman with a heart” and his family business.
Wow, I had no idea this movie existed, I’ll have to see it. Thanks for the review!
