I've seen a dozen commercials for this movie and now I can't even remember the name.

 

The commercial opens a woman with short blond hair who is a con artist. Shortly after that introduction she's shown throwing the wig away revealing her real longer brown hair.

 

She exchanges a real painting for a forged one. She ends up with a hit out on her. She ends up with a gentlemanly body guard.

It sounds like Wild Target, with Emily Blunt (The Devil Wears Prada), Bill Nighy (Love Actually) and Rupert Grint. It was released in the UK last year, but I don't think it did well. I think it's already out on DVD there. You can watch the trailer on Youtube or at IMDb. 

 

The only reason I know all this is because DD has a mad crush on Grint (Ron Weasley), which I find completely incomprehensible. She's hoping to see this movie, but I didn't think it was going to get a wide release in North America. I'll have to let her know that there are t.v. commercials right now and hope that it shows here soon. 

 

N.B. The gentlemanly body guard is the first hit man who tries to kill her, but can't bring himself to do it, and becomes her protector instead.

Agree with Ollyoxenfree.

(ETA: Olly, it was released in the US already, but it was a limited DVD release so it's probably hard to find.)

Cool! That'll be a nice naptime movie snack for me some day.

 

Course now I'm wondering why the heck I was seeing commercials for it last week.

 

And I now finally know that the woman is Emily Blunt and I recognized her from Sunshine Cleaning.

Thanks for letting me know! I'll tell DD. Maybe it's available through Amazon or it will show up on Netflix.
