  1. No matter your standard of measurement, this production falls short.
  2. 38
    (Perry and Willis) are blown off the screen by Amanda Peet and Natasha Henstridge.
  3. A convoluted ''dweeb meets the Mob'' farce in which everyone is trying to kill everyone else, but it's the movie that's the real corpse -- albeit a busy, twitching one.
  4. 16
    A witless, listless muck-up that sends you reeling from the theater with thoughts of suicide instead of a chipper grin.
  5. 30
    Stupid, empty and -- worst of all -- fantastically boring.

    Really cool and unbelievably funny movie! Bruce Willis with an amazing performance, Matthew Perry with one of the best of his career and such a nice plot! What makes it so good: It's just different to other gangster comedies. Full Review »

    Matthew Perry steal the show and Bruce Willis delliver the goods as usual in this very fun, and funny, comedy that was way too underrated in its day. Still a gem, and still a lot of fun. Check it out. Full Review »

    It is a great movie that I have now watched several times. I would recommend this movie to any of my friends any time. It will keep you watching with a twist aery corner. Full Review »
