Storyline

Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by his former neighbor Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky (Matthew Perry), retired hit man Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) now spends his days compulsively cleaning his house and perfecting his culinary skills with his wife, Jill, a purported assassin who has yet to pull off a clean hit. Suddenly, an uninvited and unwelcome connection to their past unexpectedly shows up on Jimmy and Jill's doorstep: it's Oz, and he's begging them to help him rescue his wife from the Hungarian mob. To complicate matters even further, the men, who are out to get Oz, are led by Lazlo Gogolak (Kevin Pollak), a childhood rival of Jimmy's and another notorious hit man. Oz, Jimmy and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards--and then some--to manage the mounting Mafioso mayhem. Written by Sujit R. Varma

Lean Cuisine
26 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not much nutrition here, I'm afraid. Kapner really stretches this stuff thin - as thin as cardboard, and about as tasteless.

This time there are more borrowings - the hapless Perry plays it more or less as Belushi's part in "The Man With One Red Shoe". Pollack wears the Sopranos 'Uncle Junior' glasses, and he has nowhere to go but in the direction of greater and greater excess. The gangsters and hit men all have post-"Analyze This" issues.

On the plus side, Willis knows he has to mix things up, so he plays this as though he's 'outside' the narrative, and 'in his own movie' - playing it more between the movie reality and us. Peet competently keeps up her end of the equation.

But this is beyond anyone's skill to save - not enough calories here to thrive on.
