From the VHS cover:
When murder is your business, you’d better not fall in love with your work.
Jodie Foster stars as Anne Benton, an artist who see’s what she shouldn’t — a mob assassination. The police want her to testify; the mob wants her dead. So she goes on the lam, moves to another state and adopts another identity. But she can’t hide from Milo, the mobster sent to kill her.
One look at his target and the hit man has a change of heart. He doesn’t want her life, he wants her love. Before long this unlikely couple is on the run from both the cops and the crooks, dodging bullets and trying to sort out who to trust, who to kill, and who to love.

Disenchanted with the daily drudge of crushing rocks on a prison farm in Mississippi, the dapper, silver-tongued Ulysses Everett McGill busts loose. Except that he’s still shackled to his two chain-mates from the chain gang — bad-tempered Pete and sweet, dim-witted Delmar. With nothing to lose and buried loot to regain — before it’s lost forever in a flood — the three embark on an adventure of a lifetime in this hilarious offbeat road picture. Populated with strange characters, including a blind prophet, sexy sirens and a one-eyed Bible salesman, it’s an odyssey filled with chases close calls, near misses and betrayal that will leave you laughing at every outrageous and surprising twist and turn.
