Remarkable movie with very funny moments
29 May 2000 | by rian-2See all my reviews

This is a very funny movie, where Courtney Vance play's a work-a-holic (though he is a hit man) and get's set up by his boss (Kathleen Turner) with Regina King, so he will get a private life. Their aquaintance is especially humorous. She is very persistant in getting to know him, and as they spend more time together he falls in love with her. Then he needs to get out of his business, but when Eddie leaves, he has to face the consequences and become target of the agency.

The great thing of Love and action in Chicago is they combine action and love in no ordinary way

A very remarkable sentence by Regina King: 'I haven't asked you to sleep with me..... Yet!'
