Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
A Kansas City waitress with dreams of becoming a nurse becomes delusional after seeing her no-good car salesman husband murdered. Becoming delusional from shock, she becomes convinced that she is the former fiancée of her soap opera idol. What she also believes is that the soap opera is real and goes to LA to find the hospital where he works as a cardiologist. Meanwhile, her husband's murderers are searching for the drugs stolen by her husband and, as luck would have it, they are stored in the trunk of the car she drove off in. Freeman, an aging hit man planning his retirement after this job, also becomes delusional about the woman he is tracking. Written by

As Charlie and Wesley are walking away from their broken down car, they argue about the picture of Betty that Charlie keeps looking at. Wesley grabs the picture from Charlie's hand and rips it into 3 pieces. Charlie runs back and picks it up and puts the pieces back together. Only now it is only torn in 2 pieces. See more »

No, I have to do this or he'll die. It's OK, I've seen it done once.

This film is fantastic. I thought it was very funny and sweet. There was only two violent scenes in the film although the first one is a bit gruesome it isn´t that violent. The plot is great, the screenplay is also good and overall the feel to the movie is good. The greatest thing about it however it the acting Renée Zelweger is amazing as Betty. She deserved an oscar for her role. I am not sure if she was nominated but she was fantastic ( but that bitch Julia Roberts won). Morgan Freeman was also great who also deserved some attention for his role in the film he is a great actor who is very underrated in my opinion. All the other actors were also fantastic except maybe for Chris Rock. He is really annoying in my humble opinion and not very funny. Well sometimes but it worked to have him in the film and it was very funny when he screamed Daddy. Anyway a great film that everyone should see if they have not seen it.
