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>

New Oscar categories needed
26 March 2002 | by See all my reviews

After seeing this movie I can't help thinking that Oscars should also be awarded in some new categories like "How far can silliness go and still not be entertaining" or "The youngest age of viewers that will already feel embarrassed by the fact that they're wasting their time so badly", in either of which "Life without Dick" would excel. Stuffed with a high dose of thick-skinned humour guaranteed to paralyse the brains of a horse, this ambitious 4th-or-so-grade film project has a nice theme tune by Loni Rose and is shut in colour, which are its two most attractive features. Well, there is of course the sexy Sarah Jessica, but then she really puts us up to a weirdness endurance test by demonstrating and stretching to absolute limits a grotesque gap between her physical appearance and the intellectual level of the character she portrays, however funny that character was meant to be. Harry Jr reminded us of the good ol' times he was keeping himself off the silver screen and everything was just fine that way.
