MILAN - Giorgio Armani sees the irony.
LOS ANGELES - Even international spies have trouble balancing work and family life, according to "3 Days to Kill," the latest lightweight action pic from writer-producer Luc Besson, here forming an unlikely (or perhaps unholy) trinity with director McG and star Kevin Costner.
