A movie doesn’t need good reviews to perform well on Netflix as proved by this Ashton Kutcher movie. We have repeatedly observed this circumstance on Netflix. For several days, the 2018 adaptation of Woody Woodpecker has held onto the top spot on the Netflix Top 10, yet at that same time, titles like 2011’s The Eagle have also maintained a consistent presence. Another movie that has received negative reviews is currently attracting Netflix customers’ interest and quickly rising to the top of the service’s most watched film list is Ashton Kutcher’s ‘Killer’.

Ashton Kutcher Movie On Netflix Top 10 List

Although it received just 10% from reviewers and 41% from viewers, the 2010 rom-com-action, film Killers, starring Ashton Kutcher and Katherine Heigl, is presently ranked second on Netflix’s Top 10 movie list. 

In addition to receiving negative reviews, the film also failed financially, grossing $98.2 million at the box office against a $75 million budget. Killers, which was added to Netflix at the beginning of the month, proves to be yet another exception as thousands of users watch it and boost those viewing numbers. If a major name is associated with a film or television programme, it usually performs well on Netflix.

This occurred with a number of the 2010s’ worst films, including The Snowman, The Eagle, GI Joe Retaliation, and The Call, to mention a few. This may occur for a variety of reasons, including practicality, marketing, and competition around the time of release. Whatever the reason, a new Ashton Kutcher disaster is causing the cycle to repeat itself. Whatever the case, the phenomenon is unfolding once more with an Ashton Kutcher flop. 

About Ashton Kutcher Movie, Killers

Killers is a 2010 American action comedy film directed by Robert Luketic and starring Katherine Heigl and Ashton Kutcher. The film centres on a young woman (Heigl) who meets the man of her dreams (Kutcher) who turns out to be an assassin. The film was theatrically released on June 4, 2010. 

The film is centred around the duo’s characters, Jen (Heigl) and Spencer (Kutcher). The married couple is living a normal, suburban life. But that “comes crashing down” when Jen finds out her husband is a spy on the morning of his 30th birthday. Instead of the quiet life she’s gotten used to, Jen now has to learn how to “dodge bullets” when gunfire “rings out” in their home.

Jen is determined to discover what other secrets Spencer might be keeping – all the while trying to dodge bullets, keep up neighbourly appearances, manage the in-law and work out some major trust issues. The film is directed by Robert Luketic, with Bob DeRosa and Ted Griffin having penned the script.

Reactions On Ashton Kutcher Movie, Killers

Despite the fact that the movie is undoubtedly successful on Netflix, the circumstances have left viewers perplexed, particularly in light of the Masterson incident. “Hard to believe @netflix is saying the movie #Killers with disgusting Ashton Kutcher (@aplusk) is trending as #2 in top 10 movies right now. Either this is a bad algorithm or the misogynistic ass is pushing PR BS,” said one X/Twitter user.

Even co-writer Bob DeRosa is confused, and said: “And now KILLERS is #3 out of all movies on Netflix! Seriously, this makes no sense. It would be nice to know why the sudden spike, but that would mean having some sort of access to the streaming data… which is one reason we’re striking. But hey, it’s nice to be #3 for a moment!”

“Everyone watch Killers on Netflix and kill that obnoxious bird,” wrote someone who seems to have a grudge towards Woody Woodpecker.
