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.
This is gangster life played for screwball comedy but the culture isn't all that different than what Martin Scorsese would present in Goodfellas just a couple of years later, right down to the colorful names like Vinnie The Slug...
Married to the Mob is full of promise, but goes nowhere, apparently satisfied enough with being avant-garde and hip.
Offbeat genial suburban gangster comedy delightfully directed by Jonathan Demme.
A gangster film with a twist and the idiosyncratic Demme touch.
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.
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.
Not bad of comedy Mafia film, but Mercedes Ruehl's hilarious as a revengeful wife of a mob boss.
