Professional hit man Milo (Damian Lewis) flees the city after failing to carry out a contract, and gets mistaken for a baker while hiding out in the country. But just as Milo begins to embrace his leisurely new lifestyle and strike up a romance with local veterinarian Rhiannon (Kate Ashfield), his secret gets out, and the locals start asking for much more than specialty cakes. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A hit and miss comedy."
‑ Stella Papamichael, BBC.com
"The normally wonderful Kate Ashfield bags a supporting slot as Milo's love interest only to spend the film's climax ruthlessly gagged with a strip of gaffer tape. Given the state of the dialogue, this is probably for the best."
‑ Xan Brooks, Guardian
"It lacks dramatic yeast."
‑ Philip French, Observer [UK]
"The Baker is an iffy affair made palatable mostly by Lewis' lead performance, an attractive blend of naivete and deadly efficiency. But we've seen it before."
‑ Robert W. Butler, Kansas City Star
"The good new is that it goes to DVD almost immediately so can be left to gather dust in a Woolies bargain bin."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
