Plan B (not to be
confused with the 1997 movie with Jon Cryer and Lisa Darr) features Diane
Keaton as Fran Maloni who unwittingly gets involved in more than she bargained
for when she goes from bookkeeper to hit man for the mafia.
Unbeknown to her boss,
Fran doesn't kill her victims but far from it actually, she kidnaps her
intended targets (in some quite hilarious ways) and stores then in a safe
house for safekeeping. Her boss soon realises that Fran is an excellent hit
man and starts giving her more and more jobs.
The safe house soon
becomes a boiling point as she crowds more and more victims into the house.
Plan B isn't the most funniest movie on the planet but it is a delightful
comedy that features some great acting by Diane Keaton, Paul Sorvino and Maury
Chaykin who have also played "mob" roles in other movies. Easily one of the
most light-hearted comedies for 2003, Plan B is a fun DVD that is sure to
bring a smile to even the most staunchest personalities.
The video quality of Plan B features 16:9 enhanced widescreen and appears to
be taken straight from the original theatrical source as some of the flaws
from cinema reel are apparent on this version of the DVD. The audio quality of
Plan B also supports Dolby Digital 5.1 that isn't really apparent until
something happens in the movie but fortunately the audio quality and sound are
perfectly mixed to ensure a pleasant movie experience.
In conclusion, Plan B is a short movie that runs for approximately 96 minutes
that is strictly a feel good comedy that features some great acting and a few
amusing anecdotes. Unfortunately there are no extras at all on this DVD apart
from the original theatrical trailer. Recommend for a quiet night at home!
