Based (amazingly) on a true story: When Joey Boca's wife, Rosalee, discovers that he has been cheating on her, she sets about - with the encouragement of her mother - to try and kill him. But none of their hilariously inept murder attempts get anywhere near succeeding, and Joey continues on with his life, cheerily oblivious to everything.

This movie has a great cast so it looked promising. The actors are actually good in it and I enjoyed the first half or so, but then the plot turned kind of slow-paced and I ended up being bored even before Keanu showed up. He plays a small role as a stoned drug addict with a crazy hairdo (it kinda seemed to me like he was missing some hair patches on the side, maybe it was meant as a result of the character's drug habit?) and does quite a good job of it. But unfortunately his screen time is not much. I loved River Phoenix's hippie-style character. This movie is also full of clich├ęs about Italian people, but as an Italian they didn't bother me that much, in fact they gave me a good laugh.
