By working through problems stemming from his past, Tom Warshaw, an American artist living in Paris, begins to discover who he really is, and returns to his home to reconcile with his family and friends.
Frank Falenczyk loves his job. He just happens to be the hit-man for his Polish mob family in Buffalo, New York. But Frank's got a drinking problem and when he messes up a critical assignment that puts the family business in peril, his uncle sends him to San Francisco to clean up his act. Frank is not a touchy-feely kind of guy, but he starts going to AA meetings, gets a sponsor and a job at a mortuary where he falls for the tart-tongued Laurel, a woman who is dangerously devoid of boundaries. Meanwhile, things aren't going well in Buffalo where an upstart Irish gang is threatening the family business. When violence erupts, Frank is forced to return home and with an unlikely assist from Laurel, faces old rivals on new terms. Written by

[Dressing the body of Laurel's uncle]
I was thinking he kind of looked like a prick, if you don't mind me saying.
No, no, not at all.
[Comparing dress show and bowling shoe]
Also, he seems to have enormous feet.
Yeah, well, those aren't his shoes. I couldn't find his. Stole those from the Chestnut Lanes. Don't tell my Mom.
Might have to break his toes.
[With a slight smile]
Whatever gets the job done.

This film has been advertised as a thriller. The pacing of this film is very slow and much too slow to be classified as a thriller. If you watch this expecting a movie full of action and suspense you will be disappointed.
Here's what's good about this film. All the talent that has been brought to this project has been first rate. The writing is excellent. All the actors down to the very minor ones nail their characters and deliver superb believable performances. The cinematography, sound and other technical elements are 'invisible,' which means that those aspects of the film have been done flawlessly.
The movie is very funny with many laughs. The comedy emerges from the situations as everyone in the film plays it straight as if it were a drama.
It takes a very skilled director to pull off this type of story successfully. Minor flaws can make it not work. This film works.
I think if you drop your fast paced thriller expectations for this film you will find it extremely enjoyable.
