Trivia

At the time of the movie's release, many critics panned Rosanna Arquette's performance, claiming that she delivered her lines like a female Inspector Clouseau (Peter Sellers' character from La panthère rose (1963) franchise). In his DVD commentary, director Jonathan Lynn stated that she worked with a dialogue coach and he was quite pleased with her accent. See more »

lots of laughs, surprises, and spirited performances
14 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

Perry is an unhappy dentist stuck in a dead marriage and burdened with financial problems; as if that isn't bad enough, he learns that his new neighbor is in fact an infamous contract killer with reprehensible mob ties. Against his better judgment, Perry decides to try and rat out the lowlife for his own personal gain, but soon gets in over his head. The film's humor is occasionally too silly for words, but the cast is good and full of enthusiasm—especially Peet—and the script throws out a lot of unexpected twists and turns at just the right moments. Surprising and very funny, with a perfect part for Willis who finds just the right tone for a gangster with heart. ***
