The Big Hit

A hitman attempts to break free from his mobster boss with near disastrous results.

Melvin Smiley (Mark Wahlberg) is a professional hitman in a relationship with two different women: Chantel (Lela Rochon), a gold digger, and Pam (Christina Applegate), whose overbearing Jewish mother could sabotage their liaison.

Mobster Paris (Avery Brooks) is Melvin's stingy boss.  Unbeknownst to Paris, Smiley chooses to hatch his own criminal scheme by kidnapping Keiko (China Chow), the daughter of an electronics mogul, and holding her for ransom.  Melvin is unaware that Keiko's father has gone bankrupt however, or that Paris is the girl's loving godfather.  In parallel, Smiley must keep Keiko hidden while Pam's mothervisits for dinner.
