An edgy romantic drama that never quite jells, but has enough moments of humor and/or charm to make it worth seeing.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4

The film's main sin seems to be its indecision as to whether it is a black comedy, a satire, a thriller or a love story. It's none of the above. Just tedious.

A terrific little comedy, as well as a showcase for screenwriter Richard Price's incomparable ear for dialogue.

An original if incoherent fable about the intricate relationships between a cop, a girl, and a gangster whose tone shifts radically from scene to scene, unable to reconcile between the story's softer love elements and its harder urban edges.

De Niro seems committed to the part of the sensitive loner, while Murray all but succeeds in mixing smooth and sinister, heartfelt and hot-tempered.

DeNiro can play a complete wimp and Murray can play a heavy--who knew?

An almost unconscionably enjoyable movie that plays like something conceived by a contemporary, furiously hip Damon Runyon.

A lot better than it looks, thanks in large part to Bill Murray's offbeat performance.

[The film] shifts in tone that are too stark, scenes that are too dark, sex that is too explicit and a violent fist-fight showdown that becomes more of a letdown.

Throw Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman and Bill Murray together in a Universal Pictures movie and what do you get? Something that starts off at a beautiful clip before back-pedaling like crazy into a risk-free happy ending.

The tone is uneven, with the dark moments lacking a tanglible sense of danger and the uplifting scenes missing a much-needed lightheartedness.

It's the rapport between the two actors, De Niro and Murray, that saves Mad Dog and Glory from being something less than just another buddy movie.

As in his previous films, McNaughton has an uncanny mastery over reality: this film -- the locations, the people, the emotions -- rings true.
