Joey (Kevin Kline) and his wife, Rosalie (Tracey Ullman), run a pizza joint with the help of Devo (River Phoenix), a spaced-out teenager with the hots for Rosalie.

    The late Phoenix was cool,playing a friend of the family.Ullman plays a wife who is suddenly awakened to what her repairman husband (Kline) does.Rosalie takes vengence on Joey,in the face of his philandering.Hurt and Reeves play thugs who agree with mama Nadjia\'s (Plowright) plan of murder.This film is comical and hysterical.

    "You know, getting shot in the head really makes you stop and think."...This line ALONE makes this movie worth seeing.. but there's a LOT more about this movie that will make you want to watch it at least twice. Based on a true story (If it wasn't, you'd never believe it ) about a philandering Pizza man (Kevin Kline) whose wife (Tracey Ulman) finds out that he's screwing about half the women in his neighborhood and hires a couple of stoners (William Hurt and River Phoenix) to kill him. One of the funniest monologues I have EVER seen is Kline's "confession" to his priest. I guaraneed you'll rewind the tape and listen it at least twice and laugh as hard the second time as the first....This is a comedy classic....
