Alcoholic hit man Ben Kingsley is banished from Buffalo, New York, by his gang boss and sent to San Francisco, where he works in a funeral home, attends AA meetings, and falls in love with free spirit Tea Leoni. We should all be so lucky. Kingsley and Leoni make sparks together, and so what if the subplots don't add up to much? It's enough to watch Kingsley, lean and laconic and wearing a black knit cap, prowl around mouthing Christopher Markus and Stephen McFeely's smart (but not too smart) dialogue. In other words, it's a romantic comedy with dead bodies. Even the AA group therapy jokes -- "I kill people. This is anonymous, right?" -- sound good coming from Kingsley. Directed with a good sense of dry comic timing by John Dahl (Red Rock West, The Great Raid) and costarring Philip Baker Hall, Dennis Farina, and Luke Wilson as various gangsters and alcoholics.
