The world's top bodyguard gets a new client, a hit man who must testify at the International Criminal Court. They must put their differences aside and work together to make it to the trial on time.
The movie poster showing Ryan Reynolds carrying Samuel L. Jackson is a spoof of the poster for The Bodyguard (1992) where Kevin Costner is carrying Whitney Houston. Even the tag-lines are the same (albeit with pronoun changes).
The extra A in Triple-A stands for Ass, as in, your ass between a bullet and me.
The Jaguar at the beginning of the movie is OU16 LVA. The 16 on UK number plates means the car was registered between March 2016 and end of August 2016. Shortly after, the movie moves to two years later which at the time of writing is the future assuming the film is set in present day. If no other dates are referenced, there is no reason why the film must be set on the day it is made, or released ; but if the 16 is valid, then the later scenes would have some UK number plates with 18, 68 etc.
At the end of the credits there's an outtake with Ryan Reynolds having to wait for church bells to stop ringing.
