Storyline

When Ricky Miller, a single, quiet 40-year old aspiring writer and manager of Debbie's (think Denny's) and probably the last person you'd notice in a crowd is 'hit by lightning' and meets the love of his life, the beautiful Danita on E-Happily.com, he is catapulted into a relationship online but it's a lot more than what he bargained for - this includes being asked to kill! Hounded by his best friend Seth who thinks no "10" would even go out with a guy like Ricky unless she had ulterior motives (or needed glasses), Ricky starts to get skeptical himself. Turns out, Danita confesses she's actually married to a handsome affable crime novelist and former Rabbi, Ben Jacobs. Is Danita telling Ricky the truth when she says wants to leave her husband but fears for her life if she does? Will Ricky go through with the plan to kill him so he and Danita can live happily ever after? Written by Official site

Likable
16 September 2015 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

So likable that you cannot kill it? Talking about the movie of course ... or am I? Of course I am, but what do I mean? Enough of the cryptic talk and on to the meat. Especially if you haven't seen the movie yet, I'm not going to spoil anything. Although it's not like there are too many big twists in this.

The characters in this are pretty neat and they are played by actors who have as much fun as they could have. And that does somehow translate onto the screen. The script itself isn't really that good, that it'd deserve a 5 out of 10. So the acting and the direction is saving the movie a bit from being a complete disaster. Nice comedy, nothing more, nothing less
