Essentially, the hero just graduated from college with a degree in Classical Languages. He wants to teach high school Latin but ends up being a prison executioner in the small town where he grew up.
Complicating matters, his big brother's on death row (for trying to kill him) and so is his brother's ex-girlfriend. Creating a uniquely hilarious love triangle.
I found out that the lead, Jonathan Tucker, actually took Latin in high school. Making his scenes trying to teach Latin to the prisoners even funnier.
If you like Monty Python, Harold and Maude and Grosse Point Blank, you'll like this.
Heck Prigusivac (Jonathan Tucker) is a fresh graduate form college, having majored in Latin and Romance Languages, who returns to his small hometown where his ditsy alcoholic mother Miriam (Christine Ebersole) struggles with her addiction and with the fact that her son Chick (Jeremy Renner) sits on Death Row in the neighboring prison. Heck lands a job teaching Latin to the inmates, but with the proviso that he also accept the job as Closer (or Executioner). Heck adjusts to the strange situation and manages to learn the trade of capital punishment by lethal injection. He confronts his estranged brother Chick on death row and the two have word battles about their relationship AND the fact that Chick's ex-girlfriend Dori Dumchovic (Ginnifer Goodwin) is the first female to sit on death row a few cells down form Chick. Heck and Dori flirt and Heck 'falls' for Dori, actually impregnating her in the confines of the prison. Heck manages to become a popular Latin teacher with the inmates, but has some psychological stress as the Closer - especially as the time for Heck to execute Dori approaches.Read more ›
But the sibling rivalry really heats up when he finds unconventional love in his brother's ex-girl friend Ginnifer Goodwin. Trouble is, she's also on
Death Row and slated for execution. With the clock ticking, the sparks fly as this love triangle becomes the ultimate fatal attraction.

Cute movie with a cast of good actors in their early careers. The best part is hearing Jeremy Renner sing American Pie at the end.Published 22 days ago by D. Wilson

Another Renner Movie that I can watch 100 times or more. It doesn't hurt that I may have a small lady crush on Ginnifer Goodwin. But both were excellent in this movie. Also. Read morePublished on December 3, 2013 by Amy E. Moran
The shipping was fast and very reasonably priced, and the DVD came in great condition, just as was advertised. The region coding looks to be as advertised too.Published on September 18, 2013 by Mel B
