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.
