"Violence, laughs and romance."
4 stars (Worth A Look)

Quirky poster boy, John Cusack, stars as a hitman returning to his home town for a high school reunion in this witty, blackly comic winner from director George Armitage (Miami Blues).

Hitman Cusack finds that reunions aren't always what you bargained for, as he discovers "you can't go home.. but you can shop there."

Violence, laughs and romance (with the recently hot Minnie Driver) make for a tasty cocktail, and a witty script and perfect performances by all make this a non-stop good time.

Watch for a hilarious Alan Arkin as Cusack's startled psychiatrist, and be prepared to sing along with half the soundtrack.

Good laughs all round, a multiple viewer.
