Mr. DuLac’s review:
No, no. Psychopaths kill for no reason. I kill for MONEY. It's a JOB. That didn't come out right.
Quite possibly my favorite John Cusack comedy and considering his filmography that's saying something. It's a great black comedy with fantastic dialogue and a great premise.
The cast is fantastic too. John Cusack and Minnie Driver have great chemistry together on screen. From the moment they see each other you feel there's a connection there with history behind it. Dan Aykroyd is the best and most frantic he's been since the 80s. Alan Arkin is hilarious as Marty's psychiatrist. Finally Joan Cusack's telephone conversations with Marty are one of the films many highlights.
You add a fantastic soundtrack to the mix and the film ends up with a near perfect tone of comedy balanced with occasional violence.
