Successful insurance executive Richard Ramsay has had a pretty good life until the day he is called by a paid assassin and informed that his wife is planning to have him killed. The hitman then makes Richard a most unusual offer. Later both the assassin and the faithless wife are found dead.

The plot machinations kept me watching this made-for-cable movie, despite McCarthy's mediocre acting and often cringeworthy dialogue.
