Storyline

By accident, Colleen Gibson shoots and kills her gold-digging cheating boyfriend, Dick, a private eye who happens to have a hitman on his tail. Danny the hitman works for his brother-in-law, a cheerful but nasty Irish mobster, hasn't actually killed anyone, and wants to be a singer. He falls for Colleen. she likes him, too. He can solve her problem (Dick's body), she can solve his (meeting the mobster's demands that he kill people like Dick). Danny has an ex-girlfriend, who might still hold the key to his heart, two cops are sniffing around for Dick, a junk yard owner gets a conscience, and a talent show is coming up. Bullets, music, and true love are set to collide. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

At the beginning of the film, when Dick (Johnny Knoxville) is loading the gun with a bullet, the bullet has already been fired because you can see the mark of a firing pin on the rim of the bullet, even though the bullet looks like a center-fire. See more »

Horrible
12 October 2004 | by TBJCSKCNRRQTreviewsSee all my reviews

Having seen only one other Bix Skahill film(well, actually, looking on his filmography, this is only his second film, meaning I've seen everything he's done, feature-film-wise), I must say, this is really bad compared to the other one. Chain Of Fools(which wasn't directed by Bix, only written by him... maybe that's the problem with this one?) was good for a laugh; it wasn't great, but it was original, fun and a good use of a great cast. This is a muddled mess of the genres romance and comedy, neither of which really work in this film. The jokes fall flat, the romance doesn't hold up and the characters are unlikable, one-dimensional and their actions are often illogical and out of character. The film has a number of subplots, several of which are reused from Chain Of Fools(jeez, show some imagination, will you?). Several actors from Chain Of Fools also have parts in this one, but their talents are pretty much wasted here. The film has nothing new to offer; if you've seen Chain Of Fools, you've seen what Bix can accomplish... this is, unfortunately, a mess of a movie, and a bad example of his work. The dialog is poorly written, most of the parts are overplayed, the film has no redeeming qualities and no funny moments. Please, Bix, spend more time writing the next script, OK? Or if you're going to direct again, please learn how to do so before releasing something as bad as this film. I don't really recommend this to anyone, as it's just really, really bad. Go watch Chain Of Fools(or, even better, something even funnier than that) instead. 1/10
