I have watched Grace Quigley a couple of times (on VHS) and found myself laughing out loud each time. It really is one of the best dark comedies around. I've recommended it to several friends who never heard of the movie and after watching it have come back to thank me. I don't think it ever made it to DVD, which is too bad. I would happily buy the DVD if it becomes available. Nolte and Hepburn are terrific.
The final solution is the best part of the plot. Hepburn and Nolte meet up in the most unusual way. Hepburn plays the part of the old woman who is fed up with her difficult life and wants to end it all. Nolte is a 'hit man' and Hepburn tries to hire him to do herself in. Being such a lovable old lady causes a conflict and Nolte cannot bring himself to do it... The end result a booming business with the most unorthodox product for 'sale'.
If you are in the mood for a good laugh, this is one that you should not miss.
