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.

A pretty screwed-up story about pretty screwed-up people.
Wow! Fantastic. A very dark humorous movie, one of the best of its kind that I know of. Like any good dark story, every character is presented very shortly and separately, in a way that you can already pinpoint every of his traits in a split-second. Also, like any good dark story, they all get involved with each other one way or another, would that be by being allies that we didn't know of, or simply people that cross the street at the same time and will just look at each other and go on with their lives. A must-see.
