So we’re thinking about the first series after this one ends in February, and we though something non-traditional for Valentine’s Month might be fun: hitman romantic comedies. Obviously I have a weakness for them: one of my top ten favorite romcom films is Grosse Pointe Blank (which we’re doing for PopD next Friday) and I wrote half of Agnes and the Hitman (Bob Mayer wrote the other half, and brilliantly, too). But I don’t think Lucy and I can take more than four homicidal heroes, so here’s the list we have to draw from so you help us narrow it down:
The Assassination Bureau
The Whole Nine Yards
The Big Hit
The Baker/Assassin in Love
You Kill Me
Mr. and Mrs. Smith
Wild Target (not out on DVD yet, so probably shouldn’t be on the list except that the cast is amazing so I have my fingers crossed).
Yes, I know there are some really bad films on the list, but we learn from bad stuff, too. Also, I know Prizzi’s Honor isn’t on here, and I know it’s a great black comedy, but it’s not a romcom. Eventually we’ll do a black comedy series, but this is our Hitman RomCom series. And of course if we’ve missed any, let us know.
