The mere existence of "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" -- a sequel to the 2017 movie, adding "Wife's" to the title -- suggests that action-comedy enjoyed a long shelf-life, which is clearly the hope for its equally disposable sequel. An expanded role for Salma Hayek is the newish wrinkle here, although that's hardly cause for an encore, or even an extra apostrophe.

(CNN)The mere existence of "The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" -- a sequel to the 2017 movie, adding "Wife's" to the title -- suggests that action-comedy enjoyed a long shelf-life, which is clearly the hope for its equally disposable sequel.

Bryce is actually nursing some emotional baggage when the movie begins, following a therapist's advice to take a sabbatical while vowing, "I'm not doing guns right now. " But of course, there's no movie in that, so he's quickly whisked off by Darius' wife Sonia (Hayek), who informs him that her husband has been captured by the Mafia and that she needs his help.

The talent involved almost can't help but produce some amusing moments, and Hayek throws her all into an expanded presence that allows her to curse and kill every bit as much as the guys, while taking lethal offense if anyone dares mention her age.

"The Hitman's Wife's Bodyguard" will preview in US theaters on June 11 and 12 before opening wide on June 16.
