Colleen Gibson (Sarah Jessica Parker) really loves Dick (Johnny Knoxville). But when a fortune-teller (Academy Award(r) nominee Teri Garr) convinces Colleen that her boyfriend is cheating on her, she decides to put a stop to it. Unfortunately, the gun she uses to threaten him with accidentally goes off. Now, with a dead boyfriend on her hands, Colleen hooks up with Daniel (Harry Connick, Jr.) an assassin who can sing like a bird but can't seem to bring himself to kill anyone. When Colleen learns that Daniel has been assigned to wipe out Dick, and Daniel discovers Dick is dead in Colleen's basement, it's a match made in the Mafia in this brazenly wild and outrageously hilarious comedy!
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
This comic flashback movie goes around in a circle and ends up back at the beginning! Sarah Jessica Parker and Harry
Connick Jr. are a perfect match in this underrated gem!
I think that I fast forward through much of the movie. The best parts for me were
the unexpected skills that the character Sarah Jessica Parker displayed from time to time.
Okay, granted this is probably one of Harry's first movies so we can excuse the fact that he simply cannot act in it.....BUT....what was Sarah Jessica Parker thinking of! Read morePublished on June 4, 2006 by nutznboltz
Fantastic movie. Sarah Jessica Parker is hot and histerical and with the likes of our Jackass star and the cheesy Harry Connick Jr. Read morePublished on June 3, 2004
DON'T SEE THIS MOVIE! What a waste of a good Saturday. The only reason I saw it was because I am related to one of the actors with a minor role. Read morePublished on December 1, 2003
I laugh at almost anything. This movie was supposed to be a comedy? The characters were annoying and it seemed like a kindergartner wrote it. Simple. There was not much too it. Read morePublished on March 31, 2003 by "coralmoonbay"
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... Read morePublished on October 9, 2002
