"In America, people kill each other left and right. It's like a national pastime."

Based on a true story, the film portrays a woman making five attempts to kill her husband who is having an affair.

River agreed to do this film in the hope that it would lighten up his serious image and was cast as the pizza boy Devo Nod - a character the director considered River was perfect for the part.

"I don't confuse myself with the characters I play," said River. "I make it a really strict point. Anyway, Devo is such a psychological mess-up. He's got a twisted idea of spiritual things and all that crystal stuff. He's so serious about life."

Although River first met Keanu Reeves during the previous year, it would be during the making of this movie that they would become inseparable friends. "He's like my older brother," River would fondly say.
