Dark comedy stars John Cusack as a government assassin who decides to go back to his home town for his high school reunion. Upon arrival there he meets up with an old girlfriend (Minnie Driver) he jilted on prom night years ago to join the army and take up his current employment. The two start up their affair again, but things get hairy when her father is his next assigned target. This one threatens to lose its bite as it goes on but never does; Cusack and Driver have perfect chemistry, and the script (co-written by Cusack) is peppered with inspired dialogue.
