Added DiffLines:

* HateSink: Oz's wife. Openly hates her husband, saddled him with all the debt her father racked up with tax fraud and loan sharks, repeatedly (tries) to hire assassins to kill him (and two of them refuse because they like Oz much more than her), cheats on him to seduce one such assassin into doing it, and through it all is just a generally unpleasant and selfish human being. That the professional mafia members in the film all come off as more likeable and sympathetic people than her should say something.
