Storyline

Frank Falenczyk loves his job. He just happens to be the hitman for his Polish mob family in Buffalo, New York. But Frank's got a drinking problem and when he messes up a critical assignment that puts the family business in peril, his uncle sends him to San Francisco to clean up his act. Frank is not a touchy-feely kind of guy, but he starts going to AA meetings, gets a sponsor and a job at a mortuary where he falls for the tart-tongued Laurel, a woman who is dangerously devoid of boundaries. Meanwhile, things aren't going well in Buffalo where an upstart Irish gang is threatening the family business. When violence erupts, Frank is forced to return home and with an unlikely assist from Laurel, faces old rivals on new terms.

Trivia

The movie mixes real San Francisco locations, such as Alamo Square Park and Golden Gate Bridge (where Luke Wilson works at the toll booth) with fakes such as a non-existent Saint Margaret's Church on Geary and 28th Avenue (actually in Winnipeg, Manitoba). See more »

Goofs

The story that Frank tells regarding the assassination of William McKinley is incorrect. President McKinley was indeed assassinated in Buffalo as stated, but the rest of Frank's story regarding the shooting and the search for the bullet in his body actually refers to the facts surrounding the death of President James A. Garfield. See more »

What's Wrong With People's Choice in Movies These Days!
16 January 2008 | by ghettodogaudio06See all my reviews

Very good movie. This movie is about a hit man who is an alcoholic who has to get clean for the family. I am not gonna wreck anymore plot. I thought Ben Kingsley played an amazing part. His character is so likable that you can forgive him for what he does for a living. This movie is a little bit of romance, some action, and a little comedy here and there. Tina Leonie plays the female love interest and she produced this movie. I thought she also did a great job and this is just a good movie. I work at schlock buster video and this film is so underrated. Why can't people enjoy good movies like this instead of crap like Shoot Em' Up or the new movie war. People are so desensitized this day and age that they only enjoy rude comedy by the American Pie Team or just mindless action movies about war or killing. Yes this film is about killing but at least it has a good thorough story that actually makes sense and has good acting instead of the poor acting of the guy from The Transporter in War or the disgusting language of American Pie Beta House. If you like a movie with substance check this film out as it is a killer!
