British Screwball Assassin Comedy? Why Yes. Don't Mind If I Do

Wild Target sports a brilliant British cast, in Bill Nighy, Rupert Everett, Emily Blunt, Rupert Grint, and Martin Freeman (with spectacular teeth), and it looks outstandingly hilarious, sort of a madcap cousin to A Fish Called Wanda. Unfortunately, the voice-over narration nearly kills an otherwise excellent trailer with something of an all-star cast, if you’re into British actors. It’s good to see Rupert Everett again, and Emily Blunt in a comedy. And it’s always, always good to see Nighy. Rupert Grint is something of a wild card, but hey! The ginger community must be very proud of him.
