The Big Hit

Strange criminal comedy with no real identity. Wahlberg is a nerdy suburban type with a demanding wife and a complicated middle class life, except that he's a hit man and has to contend with disposing of a chopped-up body the same way his contemporaries do with soccer practice or getting the lawns done.

Hanging off the edge of that is the subplot of his infatuation with an Asian schoolgirl that is never quite explained or resolved (maybe it was a shtick to cash in on the theme of a few porn gimmicks). And through his dubious occupation is a clique of psychotic killers and thugs (lead by the insanely evil Phillips) whose relations between each other you never quite work out. Nothing outstanding apart from it being three different formula stories put through a blender.
