  • When you hire someone to kill your wife, don’t hire a psychopath.
  • Don’t use Drano to get rid of a dead body.
  • Those locks on hotel room doors? Not very secure.
  • A curly blond wig isn’t much of a disguise.
  • Secrets can kill.
Max Fisher, aging CEO of NetWorld, is not a happy man. But if he can somehow figure out a way to get rid of his nagging wife, he'll be able to carry on with his wildly self-indulgent, Viagra-fuelled existence of drunken business meetings, excursions to seedy strip joints, and, most important, his ongoing affair with his executive assistant - an Irish-American bombshell named Angela. Fisher hires a hit man, a former IRA thug nicknamed Popeye, to kill the "redundant" wife; but what the balding chief executive doesn't realize is that Popeye is secretly Angela's boyfriend - and the murder they're planning is another one altogether.
