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>

This movie had its moments like so many other bad movies...
6 July 2002 | by ppithSee all my reviews

From the get-go, this movie feels awkward. Some of the lines seem forced, and it almost seems like the script was made up as the movie went along (or a very close set of friends reviewed the script and all gave a thumbs up). Why are there so many bad movies these days? Sarah Jessica Parker (who delivers a much better performance in Sex and the City) is a bit too cute throughout the entire movie until she resumes her other persona. But even this can't save the boring movie with a ridiculous plot (wait until you see who she hooks up with and eventually falls for?!). I think if producers want to stop losing money, they should randomly pick people and give them a summary of the movie (or a watered down script) to see if anyone should even bother.
