A dentist teams up with a feisty would-be assassin to put the final touches on the plan to kill his wife. Once he makes a play for the assassin's payment, he unknowingly sets off a chain of events that fuels a cross-town journey through the many lounges, bars, strip clubs and the occasional nudist ping pong club scattered across Los Angeles. Along the way, we are introduced to a series of idiosyncratic characters, from gangsters to exotic dancers, from ex-cons to cops, with the odd hatcheck girl and bartender thrown in for good measure.

I, I'm sorry, I'm waiting for someone.
Uh, under normal circumstances, I'd never turn you away, but this is a business meeting.
What kind of business are you in?
Um, I work in real estate, corporate real estate.
What's your name?
Look, I don't mean to be rude. I swear if you knew me, I'm the last guy to say no, to a beautiful...
Wow, you can't even tell me your name?

A funny & fast paced comedy that is brilliantly written and is very fun to watch. I liked it. I say B.
"Sometimes we find ourselves in an unbearable situation and our options dry up and we resort to drastic measures. It's called survival." A dentist (Quinto) wants to have his wife killed. When the assassin (Gugino) shows up all she want's is the money. Nick says it will take a two hours to get it and he will be back. Nothing is ever that easy though. Even though it may not sound like it this is a comedy, and a pretty funny one at that. The dialog is great and the fast paced line delivery really makes it enjoyable and fun to watch. I laughed quite a bit in this and the story moves from bar to bar in a way that makes sense and is very entertaining. The cast in this is pretty impressive and everyone really pulls off their part well. There really isn't much to this movie and it's not all that of an original idea but the way it's presented makes it seem fresh. I really enjoyed this more then I expected and this makes for a good watch. Overall, a funny and entertaining movie that is well worth checking out. I give it a B.
