I Love You to Death ★★½ 1990 (R)

Dry comedy based on a true story, concerns a woman who tries to kill off her cheating husband. Lots of stars, but they never shine. Hurt and Reeves are somewhat amusing as drugged up hit men who struggle with the lyrics to the National Anthem. Watch for director Kasdan as Devo's lawyer. Cates, Kline's real-life wife, has an unbilled part as one of his one-night stands. 110m/C VHS, DVD . Jack Kehler, Kevin Kline, Tracey Ullman, Joan Plowright, River Phoenix, William Hurt, Keanu Reeves, James Gammon, Victoria Jackson, Miriam Margolyes, Heather Graham; Cameos: Phoebe Cates; D: Lawrence Kasdan; W: John Kostmayer; C: Owen Roizman; M: James Horner.
