|Plot Summary of Triggermen|
Pete (Neil Morrissey) and Andy (Adrian Dunbar) are long-time friends and accomplices. They are small-time British crooks in Chicago looking for a scheme or scam that will net them enough money to retire.
Meanwhile, Terry Malloy and Tommy O'Brian (Rapaport) arrive at their Chicago hotel. They are hit men ready to take on a job to hit retiring mob boss Ben Cutler (Postlethwaite) at the behest of his rival. The previous attempt was foiled by Cutler himself. While the men are waiting for the money and instructions, Terry explains that this will be his last job. Pete has wandered into the lobby, thinking it a good place to lift a piece of luggage from an unsuspecting guest.
Of course, Pete lifts the suitcase containing the money and instructions for the hit. The suitcase includes a pass key to a hotel suite where he is sure there is more money and at least one night of well-deserved luxury awaiting. Andy is doubtful, moreso when they discover the money wrapped with a gun that has been hidden in their room.
When they are mistaken for the hit men, all sorts of confusion and conflicts ensue.
This film stays gracefully away from being slapstick, but is indeed a classic comedy of errors. There are two side love stories involving Andy and his girlfriend and Terry, who is pursuing a relationship with a hotel guest to whom he is immediately attracted to.
