    In the heart of suburbia, a hit man with heart has just moved in
    Certificate: 15
    Running Time: 95 mins
    Retail Price: £19.99
    Release Date:

    There goes the neighborhood - in a pine box. When hit man Jimmy "The Tulip" Tudeski moves into a comfy suburb, everyone`s suddenly in danger of pushing up daisies. And it`s not all Jimmy`s doing, either.

    Jonathan Lynn (My Cousin Vinny) directs and a top cast packs heat in this manic comedy about life, love and plenty of ammo. Bruce Willis is Jimmy, whose arrival sparks a chain reaction in which just about everybody wants to clip somebody else. Matthew Perry plays a hapless dentist who finds a way to get on the Tulip`s good and bad sides. And Rosanna Arquette, Michael Clarke Duncan, Natasha Henstridge, Amanda Peet and Kevin Pollak add to the wacky and whacked fun of "a laugh riot" (Larry King, USA Today).

    Your Opinions and Comments

    7 / 10
    I watched this film because I'm a huge Friends fan and I wanted to see how Mathew Perry faired on film. I was all prepared to be utterly disappointed (due to the beatings it received from the critics) but I was pleasantly surprised. There is nothing really original in this film, it's basically a good old fashioned romantic comedy. But it's raised above an average comedy by its two main stars Perry and Bruce Willis, as well as an excellent supporting cast.

    We even get a few extras thrown in - some amusing interviews with the cast, a director's commentary (which I haven't listened to yet) and a trailer. I would have dearly loved to have a commentary track with the main cast, but I suppose that's just wishful thinking!

    Altogether, an enjoyable comedy on a well rounded disc.
