A Life Less Ordinary (1997)

A Life Less Ordinary is a 1997 romantic comedy directed by Danny Boyle that focuses on a pair of angels (Holly Hunter and Delroy Lindo) tasked with ensuring that recently-fired janitor Robert (Ewan McGregor) and rich heiress Celine (Cameron Diaz) fall in love.

The following weapons were used in the film A Life Less Ordinary:


Colt Python

Celine Naville (Cameron Diaz) uses a nickel plated Colt Python with a 4" inch barrel and pearl grips to shoot an apple off of the head of her butler, Mayhew (Ian McNeice). She later uses it to try to shoot another apple off of Elliot's (Stanley Tucci) (if she succeeds, she'll marry him). However, she ends up wounding him in the head.

Robert Lewis (Ewan McGregor) takes a Smith & Wesson Model 66 off of one of Mr. Naville's (Ian Holm) security guards (Allan Graf). He uses it for most of the film until it is taken by O'Reilly (Holly Hunter). Celine also uses it in some scenes. This model is fitted with hardwood grips.

Heckler & Koch G3SG/1

O'Reilly looks up from the G3SG. According to the screenplay, this footage was intended for a scene in which O'Reilly practices by shooting a row of pumpkins; later, when Robert goes to the bogus ransom exchange, shots rake his car in the same fashion as the pumpkins, though O'Reilly is never seen. The two scenes were combined for the theatrical cut.


During the claymation sequence at the end, O'Reilly and Celine both display fictional firearms.
