Bitingly satirical romantic comedy
26 August 2004 | by (West Palm Beach, Florida) – See all my reviews

I caught this sharp, clever romantic comedy at the 2004 Palm Beach International Film Festival where three additional showings were added after the film's premiere sold out. I can see why. Based on a true story, this is the tale of a frustrating young housewife (sympathetically played by Tomey Sellars) who toys with the idea of offing her habitually lazy and sloppy husband (hilariously played by Justin Kane). However, before she can call off the contract, she discovers that her "hitman" is an undercover cop and she's busted. Sooner than you can say "media feeding frenzy," the case becomes tabloid fodder, the imprisoned wife becomes a feminist heroine, and her hubby learns a thing or two about growing up in the glare of public scrutiny. All in all, this is a very funny, touching and insightful film that won an Audience Favorite Award at the Festival and deservedly so. It has all the earmarks of a sleep indie hit.
