Movie Info

Courtney B. Vance stars in this screwball romantic comedy as Eddie Jones, a devout Catholic who is committed celibacy. He is also a trained killer for the Eliminator Corp; a shadowy government organization dedicated to wasting society's undesirables. He reconciles his beliefs and his career by telling himself that he has been empowered by God to rid the country of sinners and scum. Sensing that her underling could use some fun, Eddie's boss -- known only as the Middleman (Kathleen Turner) -- sets him up on a blind date with the radiate Lois Newtorn (Regina King). The tenacious Lois is struck by the gloomy loner and sets about trying to break Eddie's vow of chastity and his homicidal line of work. In the process, Eddie begins to rethink his life, much to the dismay of his boss. Jason Alexander and Ed Asner also appear in this debut effort by writer-director Dwayne Johnson-Cochran. Love and Action in Chicago was screened at the 1999 Toronto Film Festival.

Not much action, less love. But you do get to see George Costanza as a villain.

Audience Reviews for Love and Action in Chicago


The film is about an uptight and "celibate" government hit man Eddie (Courtney B. Vance) who eliminates persons that the government has problem with or does not like. As you can imagine, that is a lot of people so business for him is quite brisk but when Eddie decides to quit and be with the woman he loves, he has to face the consequences and become target of the agency. His "Middleman" boss is played by Kathleen Turner and as another one of the agency's bosses is Ed Asner. The romantic interest is played by the Regina King.
