The chemistry between Matt Damon and Emily Blunt is dynamic and believable and the dialogue they share together is downright smashing. The film was written and directed by George Nolfi. His filmography is short (this is the only film he has directed) however his writing credits include Ocean's Twelve and The Bourne Ultimatum - both of which are rife with quick-firing dialogue. The film boasts one of my favorite cinematographers, John Toll and its stars are supported by a solid supporting cast of Anthony Mackie (The Hurt Locker), Terence Stamp (total icon, listing his movies would take all day), and John Slattery (you might recognize him as Roger Sterling on AMC's "Mad Men").
Again, it doesn't knock it out of the park but it's fun and sweet. Trailer here.
