Critic Reviews for Married to the Mob

All Critics (34) | Top Critics (6)

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.

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.

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

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

Audience Reviews for Married to the Mob


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?

Quirky Romano.

Lenny Muggsy

Super Reviewer


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