Critic Reviews for I Love You to Death
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.
Audience Reviews for I Love You to Death
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.
