discovers that her pizza parlor-owning husband (Kevin Kline) has been spending time with other women when she thought he was working overtime to make money for their family. Deciding not to take it lying down, she hires two bumbling idiots (William Hurt, River Phoenix) to kill him, but they’re no good at getting the job done and neither is she, making for a presumably enjoyable comedy of major errors that goes on for as long as Kline can survive. Director Lawrence Kasdan never manages to make these characters ring funny, nor does the script provide anything more than the odd wry chuckle. The actors seem to be having a good time, but none of them care to share it with us, particularly an overdone Kline.
