Funny, well written comedy
14 December 2001 | by (Broken Bow, Oklahoma) – See all my reviews

Ford was hilarious as a blackmailing victim who decides to end his troubles with a simple murder. From the first nothing goes right, with everything under the sun conspiring against him, as he goes nuts trying to hide the body and keep it hidden. The murder scene was a total riot.
