Costner plays a spy in Paris with '3 Days to Kill'

(Continued)

Ethan’s clueless about how to deal with a teen, so he’s always stopping the torture to ask one underworld guy (Marc Andreoni, funny) how to cope, what to do, how “to balance work and family.”

Heard, all lipstick and lingerie, long eyelashes and leatherwear — has little to do here, something of a waste. Steinfeld’s Zoey is a bit of a drama queen, but not a caricature of one. She is one transgression after another, which Ethan seems loathe to punish and unable to reign in.

Daft and sloppy as it is, “3 Days” rarely fails to entertain. From the bike-riding lessons on Montmartre to dopey interrogation of the Italian “Accountant,” interrupted for a marinara sauce recipe, it’s all part and parcel of the madness of Besson, “From Paris, With Love” — filtered through McG and slapping a new stamp of “cool” on aging Oscar winner Costner.
