* SpiritualSequel: To GrossePointeBlank - John and Joan Cusack basically fill their exact same roles, Dan Aykroyd plays a supporting character in each movie, and both movies involve an assassin growing tired of his job considering quitting after falling in love

** Could qualify as a BittersweetEnding if you want to count [[spoiler: Houser's reunion with his long ago kidnapped daughter, who turns out to be Yonica, the sweet part among their implied death the bitter part.]]
** [[TakeAThirdOption Or]] you can assume it's an EarnYourHappyEnding, [[spoiler: given the quality of Tamerlane weapons being build by the lowest bidder, as shown in the climax]].

''War, Inc.'' is a 2008 satire/BlackComedy about an ex-CIA assassin named Hauser played by John Cusack who works for the Halliburton-esque company Tamerlane. As the movie opens he's being sent on assignment to the recently "liberated" country of Turaqistan to kill an oil executive from a neighboring nation named Lyubomir Neikov, because Neikov is a barrier to Tamerlane's interests. Hauser's cover is a producer of a trade show demonstrating the effectiveness of Tamerlane's campaign, which basically puts him in charge of everything PR-related, from reeling in leftist journalist Natalie Hagelhausen (Marisa Tomei), who Hauser has a crush on, to managing the wedding of Yonica Babyyeah (Hilary Duff), a slutty Central Asian popstar. And Hauser's much-buried conscience is starting to flare up again...
