Movie Summary

Director:
Billy Wilder
Released:
1981
Rating:
R

Buddy, Buddy is a dark and outrageous comedy about an emotionless professional hit man whose plot to murder a police witness hits an unexpected snag after he checks into an hotel. The hotel is just across the street from the courthouse, and the hit, with a long-range rifle, should proceed swimmingly - except that there's this guy on the ledge outside the room next door. This sad, forlorn fellow is only too ready to give up on life after his wife has left him, and his desperate situation will attract unwanted attention if Trabucco, the assassin, doesn't stop him. The ruthless killer is only too willing to bump off Victor, the distraught husband, if he has to, but his every unsuccessful effort to do so results in the hapless hubby becoming more and more convinced that he has at last found a true friend. And as the deadline for the hit approaches, things get very complicated.
