the two leads play meat salesman who are failing to close a deal. when one potential buyer gets a call from one of her friends, they become mixed up with Mafia hits and the execution of the prolific Mr Goldbluth. but it's the running time. at only 75 minutes long, the film takes the build up to the finale too slowly and by that time, the final third just happens too quickly, you are wondering what happened.
but some of the script is tight, it is very amusing in parts (especially the desperation the pair show, trying to close deals at gunpoint, and even before informing people about their impending danger). but the two leads could have done with more 'meat' to their back-story.
James has problems with his daughter, and we never really find out what the deal is here, we also learn that Romano, is a bit of a Ladies man, but not enough.
Reynolds part is no more than an extended cameo, but plays his role very well.
it's a shame that the movie wasn't released theatrically, as i imagine it would have done quite well in the states (i doubt it would have done well in the UK), as the film has a very glossy feel to it, is well produced, and sometimes gives you a 'summer' vibe at times.
also the soundtrack is very good, and used to good effect.
not the best film out there, but if you are a fan of the two leads, it is better than the recent roles they have played on the big screen.
