Joe McBeth is a hard-working but unambitious doofus who toils at a hamburger stand alongside his wife Pat, who has a significant edge in the brains department. Pat is convinced she could do a lot better with the place than their boss Norm Duncan is doing, so she works up a plan to usurp Norm, convincing Mac to rob the restaurant's safe and then murder Norm, using the robbery as a way of throwing the police off their trail. Though two stoners and a would-be fortune teller warn Mac that bad luck awaits him, he gathers his courage and goes through with his wife's scheme. At first, things seem to have gone just as Pat hoped, and after Norm's sons sell the restaurant to the McBeths (they pay for it with the money they stole from Norm), business takes off. But vegetarian police detective McDuff is convinced there's foul play at the new center of the fast food universe, and when the McBeths fear that fry cook Banco knows more than he's letting on, Mac takes charge in the plotting department ...Written by

[He had just gotten fired]
I'm so embarassed in front of you... I know you're the only one who really cared about me.
What is it?
I was just thinking how... I've never heard anyone say something so... wrong. If I were you...
[she goes to take his name tag off]
Let me get that for you... I would take pride in the fact that I could actually dress myself on a daily basis.
[He leans in to kiss her]
You really are one dumb fuck Douglas.
I LOVE YOU.

I loved this movie. I think that the acting of Maura Tierney was truely wonderful. Infact, you never caught her 'acting'. She was very into the role and it made the movie wonderful. The rest of the cast did a nice job as well. I would recommend this movie to people who enjoy slightly dark comedy and just want to watch a good movie.
