Storyline

Long-suffering Czech Pavel Zeman works six jobs, so his ungrateful wife Liba can buy designer shoes and clothes. Colin Frampton is an Englishman who never stops worrying, not even on holiday in Prague. When Colin's wife is accidentally squashed by a statue, he decides that he can't face life without her. So Colin bribes Pavel to help him die. An unlikely friendship develops as Pavel's plans for Colin's death spin out of control, attracting the violent interest of local gangster Karel Karlovic.

You've Seen it
11 June 2006 | by (Silver Lake, Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Dude wants to commit suicide but prefers that someone else kill him, painlessly and quick. Yeah, I've seen that one before.

Nothing original here, the same old story about a dweeb wanting someone to kill him and hiring the worst possible guy for the job. I had high hopes in the first 10 minutes, but it went downhill from there.

Naturally our suicidal hero gets everyone else involved in his problems, from the promiscuous wife of his hired killer to the local gangster. Hilarity is supposed to ensue, but you've already seen this movie a few times, with much the same jokes, so it falls kind of flat.

There is a somewhat enjoyable ending, that does add something new to the story, but that's about it. In between the good beginning and twist ending are exactly the scenes you expect to see.
