    "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....
