Writer director Leutwyler has a unique idea here but he doesn't know if wanted to do a comedy or a drama. Alex, Palladino, is a film student getting tuition money from a local loan shark, Mr. Z. It seems his films all bear a striking resemblance to bad imitations of Jackie Chan's martial art works and his professor is threatening to end his college career unless he can come up with something original and Mr. Z is threatening him with more unless he can make his payments.

Well, his new neighbor, Blue, Jennifer Rubin, turns out to be a hired killer who wants to get out of the business after one last job. Bingo, he gets the idea of making a documentary film about her career and last job. Naturally she goes along with the idea and Alex's roommate, Lars, goes along as his sound assistant. Sort of a combo "The Whole Nine Yards" and "Three for the Road"?

But what we now have is a poorly shot and boring Los Angeles to Miami road trip with Blue bearing her soul and Lars killing any humor with poor sight jokes about his lactose intolerance.

If that isn't bad enough we have a stop over on the way home so that Blue can get revenge on her pedohilic step father and Alex can fight over the moral dilemma of having filmed a paid killer in action.

Rubin, a genuinely attractive woman and underrated actress is wasted in this mess and Palladino, who shows some comedic ability, is as confused as the writer/director is. Anthony Denison has a few funny scenes as the polite, art loving loan shark but this is the kind of movie that should have been given a D by any honest Professor of Film.
