When Wendell Hatch, the reckless son of his wealthy client Robert Hatch, accidentally kills his masochist date Heather in a kinky S&M game, Ray breaks his rules to protect his own name and hire some guys to clean the bedroom and vanish the body. Sooner Ray has many problems to resolve: the police are on his tail trying to find a clue about the disappearance of Heather; her jealous Mexican-American boyfriend wishes revenge against the murderer; Wendell is upset, because Ray told his father about the crime; Robert is angry and hires the hitman "The Mormon" to kill Ray, but the killer spares him to chase Jack.

Interesting story, but not much else
26 January 2016 | by srdjan_veljkovicSee all my reviews

The story is interesting, both the premise and development. Sure, it's not 100% believable or consistent or devoid of problems or holes, but, it is interesting.

But, other than that, it feels like another day at the office for everyone involved. It's OK, nothing especially wrong with it, but, nothing really good or inspiring there either.

Most importantly, it's not nearly as funny as the producers wanted it to be. The attempts at being funny do make the story a little more interesting, so, the effort is not fully wasted.

If you're looking for an interesting story to see (rather than read), it's fine. Otherwise, there are much better movies of similar format.
