Harold and Maude it ain't.
The best thing about ''I Love You to Death'' is that although it fails in other ways, it accommodates Mr. Kline without inhibiting him.
It's a movie oddly out of touch with itself, simultaneously anarchic and flaccid. You can laugh at it, even love some of it, but just as likely, you'll slip off to a dreamy world all your own.
An underrated and charmingly low-key comedy.
Too silly to work, but occasionally appealing.
director Lawrence Kasdan and a superb cast engage in what seems like a working vacation. The fun is infectious, and the result is a slight but highly entertaining comedy of errors.
Well worth a look, if even for the all-star cast
Kasdan's mockery of everything and everyone ethnic is the cinematic equivalent of heading to the bowery to roll drunks.
But what sets "I Love You to Death" apart is it's comic zeal combined with a sense of warmth developed by the characters. Members of this ensemble cast are all in top form.
Black comedy based on a true story of the wife of a pizza baker who finds her Italian husband cheating and consequently plans to murder him. Kevin Kline channels parts of his role in "Fish called Wanda" and works great as charming macho man who just can't take his hands off women and just can't die. The minor characters, especially Hurt and Reeves as doped killers, are fun and the black humor works great. The film is a bit slow at times and the solution maybe a tad too much sunshine and lollipops, even if that's how it really played out. But especially the scenes of murder and revenge, with Joan Plowright being a wonderfully vile and loyal mother, are fun and make it an entertaining film.
Though the premise is intriguing - particularly its basis in a true story - I Love You To Death doesn't quite come off. It never fully embraces black comedy in the way that it pretends to, and in the end it rings hollow. Beyond the believable Tracey Ullman, the characters are cartoony; it's a good thing in Kevin Kline's case, but it doesn't really fly with the rest of them. The first half works, but the second half limps to a cornball ending. Totally forgettable monument to 1990. Ick.
Black comedy with a great cast about a wife who tries to kill her husband after she catches him having an affair.
On the hotbead of the late 80's popularity of Kevin Kline and the early 90's indie scene, comes a cast of mostly unbelievable characters that come together to make a fun dark comedy. Lawrence Kasdan, who had recenly had a decent run with The Big Chill, Silverado and The Accidental Tourist, weaves a nice dark comic tale. The entire cast really shines here. Kevin is Kevin, as always, but Tracy Ullman is great and William Hurt and Keanu Reeves steal the show as two braindead drug addicts hired to do the dirty deed, or rather finish the job. The story and dialogue is relatively straightforward and relies mainly on performance for the comic relief. Fortunately, most of the time it works. Another fun score from James Horner, who would become a major player in the future, hot off his work with Field Of Dreams. It keeps the story comedic and doesn't overpower the story. Not much to say on the cinematography really. It looks good but nothing really to write home about. In the end, this movie, the situations and outcome are totally unbelievable, but if you suspend your disbelief for an hour and a half you'll have a good time and maybe get a few laughs. Worth a rent.
