Eddie Jones (Courtney B. Vance) is a hitman, working for the U.S. Government. He eliminates people with whom the government has a problem or does not like. He is "working" a lot and saving some money for his retirement. A good and faithful Catholic (despite murdering people in cold blood), he has not had sex for three years. While confessing, he tries to bargain his murders by his chastity with God. His boss is "Middleman" (Kathleen Turner), who likes him and decides to arrange a date for Eddie. She orders Eddie to meet Lois Newton (Regina King) in a restaurant, and after a lot of confusion and misunderstandings, mainly due to Eddie's profession, they fall in love with each other.Written by

This is a very funny movie, where Courtney Vance play's a work-a-holic (though he is a hit man) and get's set up by his boss (Kathleen Turner) with Regina King, so he will get a private life. Their aquaintance is especially humorous. She is very persistant in getting to know him, and as they spend more time together he falls in love with her. Then he needs to get out of his business, but when Eddie leaves, he has to face the consequences and become target of the agency.
The great thing of Love and action in Chicago is they combine action and love in no ordinary way
A very remarkable sentence by Regina King: 'I haven't asked you to sleep with me..... Yet!'
