Storyline

For their 20th wedding anniversary, Jack gets Maggie a diamond necklace and a hit man. But when Tony shows up and, waiting for the signal from Jack in Connecticut to do the hit, he and Maggie begin to talk - perhaps Tony can come to value Maggie even more than her husband does. And when Jack shows up, things get very tricky. Written by Bruce Cameron <dumarest@midcoast.com>

Witty and hilarious, this movie is sure to make you laugh!
17 June 2000 | by (Atlanta) – See all my reviews

Ok, well it's not an action-packed thriller, but if your in the mood to laugh, be sure to pick up "Faithful." Cher and Chazz Palminteri give excellent performances that are sure to have you rolling with laughter by the middle of the movie, as it is filled with witty dialogue.
