Lame comedy that has its peak moments but not enough to really leave an impression. Bruce Willis is a hit man hiding out in Montreal who gets caught up in a huge mob-related foil by cuckolded husband Matthew Perry. Perry brings his Friends characterizations to the big screen in mass doses, while direction by Jonathan Lynn contributes to a huge mess of slapstick nonsense, but I have to admit that at moments I enjoyed some of the jokes. Followed by a sequel.
