Thanks to falsified dental records supplied by his former neighbor Nicholas "Oz" Oseransky (Matthew Perry), retired hit man Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski (Bruce Willis) now spends his days compulsively cleaning his house and perfecting his culinary skills with his wife, Jill, a purported assassin who has yet to pull off a clean hit. Suddenly, an uninvited and unwelcome connection to their past unexpectedly shows up on Jimmy and Jill's doorstep: it's Oz, and he's begging them to help him rescue his wife from the Hungarian mob. To complicate matters even further, the men, who are out to get Oz, are led by Lazlo Gogolak (Kevin Pollak), a childhood rival of Jimmy's and another notorious hit man. Oz, Jimmy and Jill will have to go the whole nine yards--and then some--to manage the mounting Mafioso mayhem. Written by Sujit R. Varma

User Reviews

Noir comedy with laughs, murders, entertaining and fun
8 September 2008 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

This black comedy concerns a notorious hit-man named John 'the Tulip' (Bruce Willis) , he's living retired when his previous neighbor Nicholas Oz (Matthew Perry) asks him for help. His wife Cynthia (Natasha Henstridge) has been kidnapped by the Hungarian mobster named Lazlo (Kevin Pollack) and looking for revenge . Lazlo sends his son Strabo (Frank Collison) , but he's abducted by Johnny (Willis) , Jill (Peet) and Oz (Perry) .

This attractive film made in screwball style displays black comedy, plot twists , laughters , turns , giggles and a little bit of action. Casting is frankly well . Matthew Perry as a mild-mannered and miserable dentist is nice . Amanda Peet is very amusing as a wanna-be hit-woman and fan of the actual murderers . Furthermore, a cool Kevin Pollack with abundant make-up and a sympathetic grandmother with flatulence . Adequate music score by John Debney and colorful cinematography by Dennis Weaver , no confusion with TV actor , recently deceased. The motion picture wes well directed by Howard Deutch . He's a sequels expert ,he has made three in which he didn't shoot the original (The odd couple , Grumpiers old men and this one) and comedy specialist (Pretty in pink , Great outdoors and My best friend's girl). This farcical comedy with similar ingredients to original will appeal to Bruce Willis and Matthew Perry fans. Rating : Acceptable, passable but inferior to original entry.
