On Christmas Eve, Mia Farrow finds herself fleeing from a hit man hired by her husband and experiencing a series of picaresque and lightly satirical adventures, in Craig Lucas’s rather stagelike adaptation of his own play, directed by his frequent collaborator, Norman Rene. The results are fairly entertaining (Farrow in particular acquits herself well), but more than a little precious and not very memorable. With Scott Glenn, Mary-Louise Parker, Tony Goldwyn, Eileen Brennan, Giancarlo Esposito, and Stephen Dorff. (JR)
