Fabulous, silly fun!
15 August 1999 | by (Chicagoland, IL) – See all my reviews

Filled with dry humor and laugh-out-loud monologue, Kill the Man was thoroughly enjoyable. Luke Wilson and Joshua Malina are both excellent. Warning: This movie is filled with profanity. However, I recommend Kill the Man highly!
