Steven Weber stars as the title character, and he hardly sleeps easy. An insurance man completely devoid of morals and scruples, he gets caught up in a murder plot against his latest gal pal's husband (a bald Gregg Henry), only it backfires. He later gets caught up in yet another murder-the-spouse plot, this time involving a ravishing but raving lunatic of a woman (played by Gail O'Grady). Then the husband of the first situation comes back into his life, and the husband of the more recent bimbo (Steven Tobolosky) starts pestering our antihero. Weber only has his aging, meek secretary (Swoosie Kurtz) to protect him. Plus he is looking at possible bankruptcy. This dark comedy is largely devoid of laughs, but the violence when it finally erupts is impressive and the strong cursing profound. Also, the finale holds a surprise or two. Plus Weber's at his venal best here.
