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 clever mix of slap-stick comedy and romantic whodunit
13 February 2002 | by (Hardwick, Vermont) – See all my reviews

Writer/director Bix Skahill is a funny man. Life Without Dick is a wild love-story, murder mystery that has layers of interesting characters and plot twists. The casting is incredible. Sarah Jessica Parker is sexy and funny. Harry Connick, Jr. has the 'triple threat'. Ever since I saw him in Jodie foster's Little Man Tate, I've considered him one of Hollywood's untapped talents. He's handsome, funny and he can sing (which is cleverly woven into the plot with the most hilarious results).

Even the guy who plays Harley, the man at the garbage dump had me rolling on the floor. This is a party film in the tradition of Animal House, Monty Python's Flying Circus and those old Bob Hope road pictures. See
