Colleen (Sarah Jessica Parker) has had enough of her life with boyfriend Dick (Johnny Knoxville), so much so that she hires hitman Daniel (Harry Connick Jr) to get rid of him for her. But she then soon finds herself falling for Daniel, who confesses that his heart is not really in the murder business and that he'd much rather be a professional crooner. Colleen subsequently agrees to help manage Daniel's singing career, which leaves the two of them with one problem: what to do about Dick?
Sarah Jessica Parker and Harry Connick Jr. star in this oddly sunny attempt at black comedy (and yes, it stoops to Dick jokes.) Parker plays Colleen, a good girl with a bad boyfriend named Dick. This problem is solved when she kills him within the film's first few moments. The rest of the movie is filled with wackiness, some of which hits and some of which misses. The plot isn't a bad one, with bits of information cleverly revealed through flashbacks and at least one pretty good twist, and the terrific (and sadly underused) Teri Garr (One From the Heart) appears in a cameo that she could do standing on her head. Life Without Dick is best suited for Harry Connick Jr. fans, as he spends most of the movie being affably handsome, with the other characters repeatedly begging him to sing. This earnest little comedy probably won't ever find mass appeal, but its weirdness will doubtless find it a cult following somewhere. --Ali Davis --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Basic plot. Colleen (played by Sarah Jessica Parker) accidently murders her boyfriend. She doesn't know what to do. Daniel Gallagher (Harry Connick, Jr.) is interested in Colleen and is a failure of a hit-man/wanna be singer that is suppose to kill Colleen's boyfriend. He won't kill anyone, she doesn't mind. They fall in love and team up. He gets the orders from his boss (Craig Ferguson) and she carries them out.
And for what it is, everyone cast in this movie plays their roles almost to perfection. Over acting is the key to camp comedy and almost everyone nailed it. One star off because Johnny Knoxville seemed a little too serious, as did Claudia Schiffer. In a movie like this, one should over act and these two seemed liked they bought into the characters and where way too toned down.
In this movie, he plays a hit man who, unfortunately, can't bring himself to kill anyone. The role didn't suit him at all. All he really did was stand around and look pretty...and sing. Sarah Jessica Parker plays his love interest, a nice girl who accidentally kills her loser boyfriend. She's a little off balance throughout the movie, though. Like she's been handed this role and she doesn't know what to do with it. And Johnny Knoxville...he was in the first half hour and that was it. Why in the world is his name on the cover along with Parker and Connick, Jr.? He's a minor character at best.
But still, the movie wasn't a total loss. There are some hilarious scenes that save the movie and make up for everything else. Rent it if you plan on wasting an afternoon.
