Storyline

Oz is a Montréal dentist, paying off debts so he can divorce his wife: the dislike is mutual. When she learns their new neighbor is hit man Jimmy the Tulip, with a price on his head, she sends Oz to Chicago to earn a finder's fee telling Mob boss Yanni where to find Jimmy. To get his wife off his back, Oz goes, his assistant Jill urging him to get laid while there. One of Yanni's men awaits Oz at the hotel; Oz's now in too deep to avoid telling Yanni what he knows. Meanwhile, Oz's wife rats on Oz to Jimmy, hoping Jimmy will kill Oz and she can cash in on life insurance. Oz meets Jimmy's wife (Yanni's captive), flips for her, and the double-crosses mount. Even Jill isn't whom she seems. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

As Oz and Sophie stand outside looking across the yard at Jimmy (when Sophie first sees Jimmy) her hair changes back and forth several times, nearly on every shot. See more »

Jimmy: It's not important how many people I've killed. What's important is how I get along with the people who are still alive.

The Best!!!
27 December 2005 | by (Greece) – See all my reviews

This is one (if not the one) of my favorite movies.

I just loved it, it has an excellent plot, perfect acting from most of the actors, specially Matthew Perry... and it's just great when you can find a movie nowadays where you can't predict the ending cause everything is possible to happen.

It's very funny

It's enjoyable

It's a pleasure to watch, alone or even better with friends

You're gonna be in for a real treat...

Although, if you like this one, don't get your hopes up too high... Cause the second one "The Whole Ten Yards", is faaaaaar from this good.

Hope you like this movie as much as I did
