Professional hitman Toni Ricardelli really loves his job ("good money, flexible hours, plenty of human interface") but just can't find the right woman. A promising blind date with a beautiful Blonde ends with her fleeing in horror. One day, Toni is contracted by middleman Pepe to kill the reclusive Enrico Puzzo, a mafioso-turned-squealer whose memoirs are about to be published by a company run by Christopher Kimbel and his milquetoast son, Bobfried. When Enrico fails to appear at his press conference, Bobfried sends editor Julia, a low-key ditz, to coax the drama queen from his Italian hideaway with a check for $500,000. Hot on Enrico's trail is Toni, who shoots him only seconds before Julia arrives in the onetime mafioso's hotel room. For Toni, it's love (and business) at first sight: Pocketing the check, he agrees to save Julia's job by impersonating Enrico. The only problem is that ornery Mafia boss Salvatore Marino sends a horde of other hitmen (and women) to finish the job Toni seems to have bungled up...
