Quirky crime/dramedy with loads of black humor tries a little too hard
The owner of a small travel agency in Alaska (Robin Williams) loves his wife with Tourette Syndrome (Holly Hunter), but he’s financially strapped and needs funds fast. After stumbling upon a frozen corpse he hatches a harebrained scheme that draws the suspicion of an obsessed insurance claims investigator (Giovanni Ribisi). Alison Lohman plays the latter’s live-in girlfriend while Woody Harrelson plays the protagonist’s wild brother. Tim Blake Nelson and W. Earl Brown are also on hand as goofy wannabe hitmen.
