Storyline

By accident, Colleen Gibson shoots and kills her gold-digging cheating boyfriend, Dick, a private eye who happens to have a hitman on his tail. Danny the hitman works for his brother-in-law, a cheerful but nasty Irish mobster, hasn't actually killed anyone, and wants to be a singer. He falls for Colleen. she likes him, too. He can solve her problem (Dick's body), she can solve his (meeting the mobster's demands that he kill people like Dick). Danny has an ex-girlfriend, who might still hold the key to his heart, two cops are sniffing around for Dick, a junk yard owner gets a conscience, and a talent show is coming up. Bullets, music, and true love are set to collide. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

A Good Idea Completely Wasted
13 March 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The painter Colleen Gibson (Sarah Jessica Parker) shoots and kills her boy-friend Dick Rasmusson (Johnny Knoxville) by accident. He was a private eye and was cheating Colleen with a police woman. In the day before, Dick had a minor car accident with Daniel Gallagher (Harry Connick Jr.). Daniel presented himself as a marchand, but indeed he is an Irish Mafia hit-man, assigned to kill Dick. However, he does not have courage enough for killing people. Daniel wanted to be a singer, but he has had some kind of mental block due to his former girlfriend Mary (Claudia Schiffer). Collen and Daniel start dating each other, and helping each other to resolve their problems. This movie could be and excellent black humor comedy. However, it does not work well and is very irregular. The beginning is very funny, along the story are some good jokes (for example, `Are you a Republican Senator?', or the dialogs of the two agents trying to clarify the death of Pee Wee and even the use of flashbacks to explain what happened), but the predictable and conventional end is forbidden for diabetics. Unfortunately, it is nothing but a good idea completely wasted. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): `Assassinato por Acidente' (`Murderer by Accident')
