Painter Paul Sloan feels he's a failure, since nobody will buy his paintings. His art dealer informs him, that the works of an artist become much more wanted and valuable if the artist is dead. Therefore, Paul, together with his friend Casey Barnett, plans to fake his own suicide. However, it starts looking like Casey has murdered Paul and when Casey starts making a move for Paul's fiancée, he decides to get revenge. However, Paul falls in love with Nikki, who has also tried to commit suicide. Written by Anders E Lundin

See Dick Van Dyke as never before
9 October 2000 | by (hendersonville,tennessee) – See all my reviews

I love this movie and try to watch it whenever it is on television.Van Dyke takes a break from playing Rob Petrie in order to play the comic foil to James Garner.The two of them then fight over Angie Dickinson,but then the beautiful Elke Sommar arrives and Garner's world goes upside down as he's tried for a murder that never happened.The recognizable faces of Carl Reiner,Ethel Merman and Roger C. Carmel pop up as the movie goes along.It's a shame this movie isn't on video because it really is a very fast,furious and funny film.
