Plot

Joey Boca (Kevin Kline) is the owner of a pizza parlor located in Tacoma, Washington and has been married to Rosalie (Tracey Ullman) for years. Rosalie is horrified to discover than Joey is a womanizer, and has been cheating on her for a long time.

Rosalie doesn't want to allow Joey the pleasure of having every woman he wants, so she refuses divorce. Taking extreme measures, she enlists the help of her mother (Joan Plowright), and co-worker Devo (River Phoenix) to kill Joey in order to put an end to his infidelity. They also hire two incompetent, perpetually stoned hitmen (William Hurt and Keanu Reeves).

However, Joey proves nigh on impossible to kill. Despite multiple attempts to poison, shoot, and bludgeon Joey to death, he remains blissfully unaware that he is being targeted.

Production notes

Kevin Kline had requested that his wife, Phoebe Cates, take a small role in the film. She appeared in the bar/disco scene as the girl Joey picks up at the bar. She did this as an uncredited appearance and as a favor to her husband. She was also filming Drop Dead Fred at the time of her cameo in I Love You to Death which is why her hair looks exactly the same in both films.
