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]
Clarice Oliver: and then without warning he was Peter Lorre! Harold, he made me be Sydney Greenstreet. I gained 35 pounds in one month!

Wife slaying farce that will slay you!
23 December 1999 | by (The south) – See all my reviews

This is one funny flick. It's about the dead-beat husband of a rich woman who, after finding out she's going to divorce him, takes out a life insurance policy on her and hires a hit man (Bill Dana aka Jose Jimenez) to do the dirty work. When he finds out that the insurance policy is invalid, thanks to the incompetant doctor (Pat Morita) who performed the most discreet physical in medical "hystery"! The husband then tries to stop the hit, only to find that it has been sub-contracted about a dozen times! The round up of the (insane, whacky and unlikely) hit men is so funny that my sides hurt when the film finally ended.
