Based on a play by star Chazz Palminteri, this wooden domestic satire might have worked better on stage. Unhappy hubby Jack (Ryan O'Neal) hires philosophical hit man Tony (Palminteri) to murder his wife Margaret (Cher) on their 20th wedding anniversary. Margaret and Tony
end up trapped in her house, and there follows a great deal of bickering, punctuated by two or three effective gags. It's painfully contrived and stagy, and the awkwardness isn't helped by the fact that Cher spends much of the film tied to a chair.
