Storyline

John Herzfeld deftly welds together a multitude of subplots-- a loser hitman and a cool assassin involved in an insurance scam; a washed-up director, turned suicidal, if only he had someone to care for his beloved dog; a snooty art dealer, wracked by kidney stones, cared for by his devoted assistant; a grungy deranged vice cop, now partnered with a fresh-faced rookie; and two beautiful and jealous women entangled in their deadly scheme--into a spoof of the crime thriller genre. Written by Tad Dibbern <DIBBERN_D@a1.mscf.upenn.edu>

It was just Okay (spoiler free)
10 February 2013 | by (Alvin, Texas) – See all my reviews

I've had this movie in my collection for a few years and just got around to watching it. It was given to me as a gift. I agree with other reviews that it was trying to clone Pulp Fiction, which is a much better movie. There were scenes that I really liked, although it was a little slow in connecting them. The cast was incredible. I just wish there was a little more to work with. Terintino's dialog writing skills would have made this a much better movie. Charlize Theron was incredible. I would have liked to see more of her. The version that I have is the old style snap case and it was widescreen, but not anamorphic.
