Martin Blank is a professional assassin. He is sent on a mission to a small Detroit suburb, Grosse Pointe, and, by coincidence, his ten-year high school reunion party is taking place there at the same time.
Martin Blank is a freelance hitman who starts to develop a conscience, which causes him to muff a couple of routine assignments. On the advice of his secretary and his psychiatrist, he attends his 10th year High School reunion in Grosse Pointe, Michigan (a Detroit suburb where he's also contracted to kill someone). Hot on his tail are a couple of over-enthusiastic federal agents, another assassin who wants to kill him, and Grocer, an assassin who wants him to join an "Assassin's Union."Written by
Benny Urquidez's character's name, Felix La PuBelle, is pronounced the same way as "poubelle," which is the French word for garbage can. See more »
Near the beginning of the film, the interior door between the Ultimart counter and video game opens into another store. Before the battle with Felix, the door instead leads to the outdoors, as trees are clearly visible through the window glass. Immediately before the explosion, the other store is again visible through the window. See more »
I found this movie wonderfully complex and startling close to issues in my life. If you can't follow the psycho-babble and jerky dialogue, then you probably don't get Dennis Miller comedy either. I love John's work and was delighted to enjoy his work over and over. I do have one request. Someone, anyone, please, tell me the name of the song playing in the background while John holds the baby in the reunion scene. I couldn't find it on the soundtrack or in any listing. Please, email me with the answer. I'll send you a souvenir from Juwanna Mann or the Patriot if you help me. Thanks.
