Cast & Crew
The film has to fly by its wits -- and its witty lines -- and by the charm of its stars. This it does, just barely.
There have been a lot of black comedies about assassins lately -- there have been a few just this year -- but Wild Target may be the first one to contain genuine laughs.
An eccentric little comic thriller filled with enough laughs that I was mostly willing to overlook the fact that it makes virtually no sense as a thriller.
