Product Description

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun movie February 8, 2002
This movie was really well done. The cast was perfect and there were actually some laugh out loud scenes. Harry Connick plays a hit man that can't kill. He meets Sarah Jessica Parker, they fall in love, and she starts killing for him. Lots of cute twists and turns, and some sarcastic humor as well. For fans of these two actors, I definitely recommend this movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Talk about middle of the road... May 5, 2002
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Without Dick February 24, 2010
By accident, Colleen Gibson shoots and kills her gold-digging cheating boyfriend, Dick, a private eye who happens to have a hitman on his tail. Danny the hitman works for his brother-in-law, a cheerful but nasty Irish mobster, hasn't actually killed anyone, and wants to be a singer. He falls for Colleen. she likes him, too. He can solve her problem Dick's body, she can solve his meeting the mobster's demands that he kill people like Dick. Danny has an ex-girlfriend, who might still hold the key to his heart, two cops are sniffing around for Dick, a junk yard owner gets a conscience, and a talent show is coming up. Bullets, music, and true love are set to collide. "Life Without Dick" is a wild love-story, murder mystery that has layers of interesting characters and plot twists. The casting is incredible. Sarah Jessica Parker is funny. Good comedy for a nice evening.

3.0 out of 5 stars 3.5 stars - Fresh black comedy March 17, 2002
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Remember, this is a camp comedy... December 8, 2012
By emt0402
Camp comedy doesn't appeal to everyone. I'm not some pretentious snob or anything who pretends to get stuff when no one else does. Seriously. Camp comedy is defined as "an aesthetic sensibility that regards something as appealing or humorous because of its ridiculousness to the viewer". There is nothing to get. It is suppose to be stupid, stilted and unrealistic. It is either something people like or they don't. It just so happens, I like camp comedy. And yeah, the plot here is ridiculous.

Basic plot. Colleen (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) accidently murders her boyfriend. She doesn't know what to do. Daniel Gallagher (Harry Connick, Jr.) is interested in Colleen and is a failure of a hit-man/wanna be singer that is suppose to kill Colleen's boyfriend. He won't kill anyone, she doesn't mind. They fall in love and team up. He gets the orders from his boss (Craig Ferguson) and she carries them out.

And for what it is, everyone cast in this movie plays their roles almost to perfection. Over acting is the key to camp comedy and almost everyone nailed it. One star off because Johnny Knoxville seemed a little too serious, as did Claudia Schiffer. In a movie like this, one should over act and these two seemed liked they bought into the characters and where way too toned down.

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.

I love Sarah Jessica Parker but this was one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I am amazed how these bad films get funding. And why would she do such a weak film during 2002? Read more
