A Very Funny and Worthwhile Entertainment
3 February 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Eddie Jones (Courtney B. Vance) is a hitman, working for U. S. Government: he eliminates persons that the government has problem or does not like. He is `working' a lot and saving some money for his retirement. Good and faithful catholic, he has not had sex for three years. While confessing, he tries to bargain his murders by his celibate with God. His boss is `Middleman' (Kathleen Turner), who likes him and decides to arrange a date for Eddie. She orders Eddie to meet Lois Newton (Regina King) in a restaurant, and after a lot of confusion and misunderstandings, mainly due to Eddie's profession, they fall in love (and lust) for each other. This action-comedy-romance is really very funny. Courtney B. Vance usually works in `serious' movies, and he has a great performance in this black-humor comedy. There are at least three scenes that make this movie worthwhile: Eddie's confession, when he tries to bargain his penitence with the priest; Eddie's first date with Lois, when she is pregnant; and the misunderstanding of Frank Bonner (Jason Alexander) with the profession of Lois. A great entertainment, that makes laughing a lot. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): `Amor e Aventura em Chicago' (`Love and Action in Chicago')
