Irish DreamTime, the production company of Beau St. Clair and Pierce Brosnan, and the production company of the Furst Brothers (Sean Furst and Bryan Furst), Furst Films, had gravitated towards Richard Shepard's screenplay almost simultaneously, and quickly joined forces. The Furst Brothers had just gotten the rights to Shepard's script, and were thrilled Brosnan wanted to play Julian Noble. When St. Clair and Brosnan took it to the Stratus Film Company, the movie got fast-tracked and green-lit. See more »

Humorous and multi-location story with a hit-man at the core.
The delivery of some very humorous rude lines by Pierce Brosnan is alone worth the price of admission. He plays a kind of "James Bond's psycho twin brother", separated at birth, no doubt. As an intense hit-man, his character is very sexual but even better, very funny. Add the kind-hearted, uber-likable American "guy next door', Greg Kinnear, to set up contrast. The myriad locations, vivid colors, and quick-witted humor provide great entertainment. Hope Davis is well cast as the "gem of a wife". But the focus of the film is on the two fellows, a new "Odd Couple", and that's the part that works very well. Have a great (probably R-rated) laugh, and look for the places where the story goes a little deeper.
