Sarah Jessica Parker and Harry Connick Jr. star in this oddly sunny attempt at black comedy. (And yes, it stoops to Dick jokes.) Parker plays Colleen, a good girl with a bad boyfriend named Dick. This problem is solved when she kills him within the film's first few moments. The rest of the movie is filled with wackiness, some of which hits and some of which misses. The plot isn't a bad one, with bits of information cleverly revealed through flashbacks and at least one pretty good twist, and the terrific (and sadly underused) Teri Garr appears in a cameo that she could do standing on her head. Life Without Dick is best suited for Harry Connick Jr. fans, as he spends most of the movie being affably handsome, and the other characters repeatedly beg him to sing. This earnest little comedy probably won't ever find mass appeal, but its weirdness will doubtless find it a cult following somewhere. --Ali Davis

Ok, I admit it. I don't care much for "Sex In The City". Hey, I'm a guy, and it's not a guy show. But hey, if you're a fan of Sara Jessica Parker and her brand of humor, you will probably like "Life Without Dick".
Directed by Bix Skahill for Columbia Tristar pictures, this is a low-brow, romantic comedy starring Sara Jessica Parker and Harry Connick Jr. It runs aproximately 97 minutes on VHS.
The movie opens with Parker's character, Colleen, accidentally killing her boyfriend while attempting to scare him because she believed he was cheating on her. Unbeknownst to our heroine, her boyfriend was on a hit list of a local Irish Mafia kingpin, and the hitman is none other than Harry Connick Jr. Connick plays a would-be hitman who has a gift for singing and an inability to kill people. The plot then follows these two unlikely lovers as they find that Colleen actually is a better hitman than Connick.
Of course, in the end the bad guy gets caught, the odd couple really do fall in love, and life is grand.
Woven into all this unlikelyhood are ironic twists, dumb cops, and various parodies. Fairly typical for a movie of this type.
How would I rate this? I give it three stars, because you have to be a fan of the actors involved to even be interested in this movie. Not much intelligence is required to digest it, and it really is not that funny. It wanders, it meanders, it is hard to stay involved with, but then again, that's a Sara Jessica Parker trademark, isn't it? However, you gotta love Harry Connick Jr.'s voice.
My suggestion would be to rent a good Robin Williams movie instead.

This movie wasn't great...but it wasn't horrible either. The only reason I rented it was because I'm madly in love with Harry Connick Jr. To tell you the truth, he acted better in Hope Floats and Memphis Belle.
In this movie, he plays a hit man who, unfortunately, can't bring himself to kill anyone. The role didn't suit him at all. All he really did was stand around and look pretty...and sing. Sarah Jessica Parker plays his love interest, a nice girl who accidentally kills her loser boyfriend. She's a little off balance throughout the movie, though. Like she's been handed this role and she doesn't know what to do with it. And Johnny Knoxville...he was in the first half hour and that was it. Why in the world is his name on the cover along with Parker and Connick, Jr.? He's a minor character at best.
But still, the movie wasn't a total loss. There are some hilarious scenes that save the movie and make up for everything else. Rent it if you plan on wasting an afternoon.

A dissapointment from Harry Connick Jr., but then I guess he doesn't get offered the A-roles at the moment. Oh but Harry, when you read the screenplay, didn't you see the train wreck coming? The screenwriting has horrible for this film. Perhaps the blame could be shifted to the editing if there were critical scenes left out that would have made the film's transistions and plausibility smoother. I doubt it. Poor writing for a black comedy with able actors makes for a poor movie that very few actors can pull out of a pit of mediocrity.
Sarah Jessica Parker does an excellent job at portraying herself, and Harry Connick Jr. seems a bit confused onscreen at times, I think wondering like myself why he ever let his agent talk him into this role.
Harry Connick Jr. lovers: go see Hope Floats or Copy Cat and save your money on this one.

Director debut for Bix Skahill, "Life Without Dick" reminded me of "Death Becomes Her," that Robert Zemeckis movie with Bruce Willis and Meryl Streep. This one stars Sex and the City's Sarah Jessica Parker and singer Harry Connick Jr. She plays the role of a nice girl who accidentally kills her boyfriend Dick, because she's been "informed" that he's cheating on her by a Tarot Card reader. He, in turn, is a hit-man with no future as such, because he can't pull the trigger on his victims. Twists of fate make them meet and get involved in a romance that will promise to be full of surprises and black humor.
Not the best black comedy I've seen, but not a bad "B" film either. Rent it for watching it on a Sunday afternoon if you got nothing better to do: you'll be sure to get a few laughs out of it.

I am only bothering to write this to warn people away from this travesty of a film. It is horrible. HOR-RI-BLE! Written and directed by Bix Skahill, one of the Mystery Science Theater 3000 producers, I wonder if he didn't write it so that people could make fun of it. He should know better. Shame on you, Bix. Sara Jessica Parker and Harry Connick Jr. (and the rest of the b-grade actors in the film) seem embarrassed to be in it, mouthing their lines as if they were freshmen English students forced to read before class). It wasn't even fun to make fun of. Save your money!
