Storyline

Oliver is in trouble. He's been caught embezzling money from his father's company, and unless he can pay back the $250,000 he took (which he can't), he will be fired from his job, arrested and probably sent to jail. Meanwhile, his rich wife has not only refused to bail him out of this mess, she's planning to divorce him. Desperate, Oliver thinks up a way out. He takes out an insurance policy on his wife with him as the beneficiary, then hires a hit man to kill her. The only problem is that because the doctor who performed the examination is an incompetent fraud, the insurance policy is invalid. Desperate to call off the hit, Oliver tracks down the hit man, only to find that he's subcontracted the killing to another hit man. Tracking down that killer reveals that he, too, has hired it out to a third person, and so on, and so on. Just how many people are trying to kill Oliver's wife?

Clarice Oliver: [Sharing with her attorney her concerns about Jordan] He keeps acting, pretending he's other people.
Harold Booker, Esq.: You mean how he sometimes thinks he's Humphrey Bogart?
Clarice Oliver: Oh, that's not so bad. The Bogart thing was a game with us. We were gay, we laughed.
[Smiling]
Clarice Oliver: He's be Bogart and I'd be Bacall and -
[suddenly disturbed]

Way Too Silly to be Considered Funny
20 July 2001 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Abysmal farce about a man who hires a hit man to kill his wife, but when he wants to call it off he can't because it's been sub-contracted to too many different 'wacky' characters. Similar in style to THE BIG BUS and AIRPLANE, but much more sillier. In fact it gets so silly that it becomes dumb, embarrassing, and even more lame than a kiddie flick. The running gag of a faceless killer (we only see his shoes) repeated attempts at killing the wife are poorly executed and photographed. Making them annoying instead of clever or funny. Out of ninety minutes there are really only three that are even half way amusing. Of the few minor highlights: a cuckoo clock in a psychiatrists office, a mexican waiter in a chinese restaurant, and a out of work actor who agrees to do the killing for $6.95. Funny character actors Darden and Libertini play several different roles.
