Storyline

Her goldfish dead, her lover exposed as a rat, Shawn Holloway leaves her bank post and goes to the roof intent on suicide. Before she can leap, she's taken hostage by Charlie Anders, a fleeing bank robber. He and his partners have stolen a million in cash and plan to escape to Venezuela. Shawn agrees to cooperate if Charlie promises to kill her once he's in the clear. Parts of the plan go awry, so Charlie has time to try to pierce her bleak manner and self pity, and she has time for reflection. As night falls, their interlude ends: they're each alone, Charlie facing prison as the police close in, and Shawn staring down at a river from atop a high bridge. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Hostage movies tend to be lame. Unless they're 'Kill Me Later"
8 September 2005 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I'm quite happy to admit that I only watched 'Kill Me Later because it starred Selma Blair and I happen to think she's rather cool (despite 'Hellboy', but I'm happy to chalk that down to a bit her right of a laugh at work). Dana Lustig balances out 'Kill Me Later' with all the food groups necessary to make a motion picture work, pulling together some great performances with an original script and well thought out characters. It's theme stems from the tested movie setup: Two people living out the worst day of their respective lives meet. Gradually add hilarious or terrifying situations as required... But this is turned on it's head to satisfy the black comedy needs of 'Kill Me Later'. I'm fairly sure that the intent of the film is not to make suicide seem funny, so your allowed to laugh.
