This is a glorious mess of a movie! Uncredited performances by Pesci, Dylan and much more, over the top in all respects. Hopper must have been completely insane when he made this.

Amazing cast but weak on so many levels, so much so Hopper disowned the cut that was released. That said it is worth a look for the cast, but Hopper's New Jersey accented hitman is so lame, the plot is so weak it plays like a TV movie, Price is so underused and the Foster/Hopper relationship so unbelievable that this is an unfortunate turkey.

Pretty goofy movie that has an amazing cast (Jodie Foster! Dennis Hopper! John Turturro! Vincent Price! etc) about an LCD artist (don't ask) who has a hit placed on her, but the hitman falls in love with her, and soon, so does she! Dennis Hopper directs, and you know what that means.. Yeah, this just goes ALL over the place. But somewhat fun as you want to see what else this film has up it's sleeves (like John Turturro as Barton Fink as hitman!)

Well this film has a hell of a cast, these old films always seem to and its a pretty good film too. Its starts kinda slow and you get the feeling of dread that this will be really dull but after Charlie Sheen bites the dust and Dennis Hopper the hitman comes along it does start to move. Foster looks cute n sexy as the girl on the run and Pesci, Stockwell and Turturro are good as the mobsters after her blood (all led by Vincent Price as the mob chief I might add), its not too original, rather predictable (witness to mob hit goes on the run) but the cast are really good and keep you interested. Its not a serious bloody film but more of a road movie with some Humorous moments and a twist love plot too, the most important thing being you want the two leads to escape and live happily ever after :) the film draws you in.

If it's had three different titles you know it must be good.

There's a reason why this film never took off. It was poorly written, which is surprising considering Dennis Hopper wrote it.
