It may be said that all movies are products, particularly the bigger budget mainstream ones, well this is certainly the case here. The cynical producers of this masterpiece must have assumed that it would be money in the bank to aim their movie at both men and women, with the romantic comedy parts for the girls and the action parts for the guys resulting in both halves of the date going home happy. The main problem is that it's really not funny, with large barren sections of script void of any comedy, not even poor gags or broad humour, just nothing. The action is as by-the-numbers as humanly possible and some of the support characters wouldn't be out of place in a failed TV sit-com. As for the movies alcoholism themed running gag with Catherine O'Hara's character, what the hell were they thinking?
