You Kill Me

We heard a lot about this movie-so we went to see it. It stars Ben Kingsley and Tea Leoni. It is supposed to be a comedy. I didn't think it was funny. I thought it was rather boring, in fact. I was so disappointed. Good thing we went to dinner at Morton's after. I find Tea Leoni a very boring actress- her voice is flat and her face is flatter. I never feel anything she is supposed to project. It is implausible that she would befriend a hit man. Kingsley does a fantastic job in this role, but the role is hackneyed. Who goes to an AA meeting and says they are a killer and NO ONE reports it. It is supposed to be funny but it comes across as contrived and manipulative. It was a waste of our money. I think it got all those stars because Kingsley is in it.
