100-word Film Review: You Kill Me

Do you enjoy hit-man comedies that are sexy, funny, bizarre, and full of mid-00s fashion? For you there is You Kill Me starring Ben Kingsley, Téa Leoni, Luke Wilson, and Bill Pullman (yeah, you read that cast correctly). Kingsley stars as an alcoholic hit-man from upstate New York, sent to San Francisco to detox. His gig putting make-up on dead people leads him to Leoni, who falls in love with him as he teaches her his murdering skills. A new standard has truly been set: a partner who can teach you to cut someone’s throat on a watermelon.
