Beware, people: Flirtatious phone patter seems harmless enough - two strangers batting innuendos late into the night - but it can be hazardous to your health.
One minute you're on the phone, separated from the husky-voiced gent by hundreds of miles. Next thing you know, you've been drugged and abducted, and folks are chasing you in cars and helicopters, shooting at you with guns and rockets.
That's how things shake out for Mary-Louise Parker, anyway, gamely playing a lonely government pensions clerk in Red, a breakneck (for a time), slapstick action pic adapted from the DC Comics book.
Like Cameron Diaz caught up in Tom Cruise's spy-guy mayhem in Knight and Day, Parker is the innocent tagalong to Bruce Willis' black-ops veteran in Red. His name is Frank Moses and he's quit and gone underground, but on a Christmas Eve in Cleveland, someone decides to riddle his house with rounds of ammunition and artillery fire.
