The only problem is that the quality of comedy in this particular film is nowhere near those three titles. If the trailer ended there, I would have been thrilled. Thankfully it appears that the rest of the fools who usually show up in movies like this have been sidelined. That seems to be because the action far outweighs the comedy, likely because Kick-Ass 2 director Jeff Wadlow is behind it instead of a full-fledged comedy director.

After a publisher changes a writer's debut novel about a deadly assassin from fiction to non-fiction, the author finds himself thrust into the world of his lead character, and must take on the role of his character for his own survival. Kevin James makes me laugh. He's always the same, I know, and he doesn't have anywhere near the range of the late John Candy, for instance, but there's something about that Blue Collar Everyman that is appealing.
Here he stars in "True Memoirs of an International Assassin" from He plays Sam, an insurance man writing the fictional story of an international hit man.
