John Herzfeld deftly welds together a multitude of subplots-- a loser hitman and a cool assassin involved in an insurance scam; a washed-up director, turned suicidal, if only he had someone to care for his beloved dog; a snooty art dealer, wracked by kidney stones, cared for by his devoted assistant; a grungy deranged vice cop, now partnered with a fresh-faced rookie; and two beautiful and jealous women entangled in their deadly scheme--into a spoof of the crime thriller genre.

O.K. movie. I gave it a 5.If available, I probably would have given it a 5.5. Mildly entertaining. It was good to see Marcia Mason. I think if she lost weight she would still be very attractive. Glen Headly is an outstanding actress and is the only performer in the entire film bringing something new to the screen, as she always does. Loved the fight scene between Terri Hatcher and Charlize Theron. Charlize looks great in the tight jump-suit. It must have been cold on the stage the day they shot the fight scene because she was looking a little "nippley." Best phrase: As Terry Hatcher is rubbing her face into the wall she says,"Like that wall."
