This movie has it all, and to top it all will somehow remind you of Crash and Tarantino's Pulp Fiction with its interrupted storylines and impressively diverse characters.
James Spader plays an ice-cold assassin, whose sidekick is the sexy Charlize Theron. for their next hit he recruits the services of the old, has-been, washed-up hitman Danny Aiello (as Dosmo). Spader tries to frame Dosmo for the hit they just pulled and so we find Dosmo bringing his whole existence into question as he realizes that he's lost his pride, his work, reputation- and not to mention- his wig.
Two Valley vice cops (Jeff Daniels and Eric Stoltz) appear at the murder scene and try to untangle the threads of this homicide, as they hope to make homicide detectives someday. And through it all ex-director Teddy Peppers (Paul Mazursky) is trying to commit suicide, if only he can find someone to take care of his dog once he's gone...
A pot pourri of crime and action comedy that'll have you rolling on the floor.
