Critic Reviews for Married to the Mob

All Critics (33) | Top Critics (6) | Fresh (30) | Rotten (3) | DVD (7)

Pfeiffer is at her best, and there's plenty of action, although you may feel that some of the gags involving a scorned and vengeful wife (Mercedes Ruehl) are a bit shopworn.

The enormous cast is a total delight, starting with Pfeiffer, with hair dyed dark, a New York accent and a continuously nervous edge.

Top Critic

Amazingly, for all its hip anarchy, it's finally an oddly old-fashioned slice of entertainment. Preston Sturges might have approved.

Miss Pfeiffer, who looks utterly ravishing in outfits that set the teeth on edge, turns Angela's plight into something funny, but she seems eminently sane even when the movie does not.

Demme keeps his characters (scripted by Barry Strugatz and Mark R. Burns) from wandering into the Buffoon Zone.

A mix of goofy ethnicity, romance and self-discovery, "Married to the Mob" is an offer you can't refuse.

A gangster film with a twist and the idiosyncratic Demme touch.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

A fluffy but entertaining comedy.

A lot of fun to watch, thanks to a darn sturdy cast and a director with a sublime ability to make fluff seem deeper than it really is.

Unconventional romantic comedy with a slap and a tickle.

Pfeiffer is superb in a delightful farce

Pfeiffer is outstanding.

A light-hearted comedy about one woman's dream to remake her life

A comic exploration of the changing face of the mafia, the only damage this mob will do is to your funnybone.

Very amusing trifle from when Demme still had a personality

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

One of Demme's best comedies. Rent this and Something Wild and have a crazy good time.

Only a director like Demme could make so many mob characters likable.

For fans of Demme's work, however, or those who are looking for comedy that's off the beaten path, Married to the Mob might fill the bill.

A surprise, as Pfeiffer warmly engages as the mob wife tired of the mob life. Caricatures, sure, but still vibrant, warm and fun. Coulda used more Ruehl and Cusack, but whatcha gonna do?

Another disastrous mob "comedy" featuring Michelle Pfeiffer doing her best "Working Girl" impersonation and lots of gratuitous violence. Which is always funny.
