Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Harry Bromley-Davenport directed this wacky black indie comedy about ad exec Brian (Timothy Busfield), happily married to his second wife, Calamity (Melora Hardin). Unfortunately, his first wife, Stephanie (Jennifer Grant), supports her wild shopping sprees with alimony payments that squeeze Brian into near-bankruptcy. Thus, Stephanie lives in a luxurious Hollywood mansion while Brian and Calamity struggle to survive in a seedy apartment one step from the slums. Solution? Brian and Calamity hire a hitman -- who not only botches the assignment, he falls in love with Calamity. Meanwhile, Stephanie finds a new source of funding when she connects with psychotic billionaire Ralph Worth (M. Emmet Walsh). Shown at the 1998 Montreal World Film Festival.
