Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Ruthless People is a hilariously venal comedy about a kidnapped harridan whose rich husband won't pay for her return.
DeVito at his best.
| Original Score: 4/5
A pity that the directors prove less ruthless than their own creations, but there is more than enough here for people who enjoy murder attempts on cute pet poodles.
One of the best comedy capers of the 80's
| Original Score: 3/5
Funny and fearless
| Original Score: 5/5
Funny, nasty 80s update of "The Ransom of Red Chief." The Ref found similar dark laughs a decade later.
A wonderful cynical comedy filled with mean-spirited, but humorous, zest. Loads of fun!
Though ''Ruthless People'' has few moments to equal the inspired lunacies of ''Airplane!'' it's a true farce -- uniformly, cheerily nasty...
| Original Score: 3.5/5
...a large number of Ruthless People's jokes work and work well.
| Original Score: 3/4
About half as funny as it thinks it is
Grade-A black slapstick comedy. A truly hilarious film.
| Original Score: 9/10
DeVito is the mainspring of "Ruthless People," the engine of murderous intensity right at the center. His passion is so palpable that it adds weight to all the other performances in the movie.
