I think it's just about a great movie, and certainly one of director John Huston's best.

Almost every possible mob film has been made, but this one still feels inventive and engaging.

August 16, 2008
John Huston's dark, cynical comedy about the Mafia, one of his last pictures, suffers from the lack of chemistry between Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner, but Anjelica Huston is excellent in a well-deserving Oscar-winning turn.

July 20, 2008
A blackly comic and insidiously sly love story in the unforgiving underworld of mob families and freelance criminals...
February 5, 2008
Huston steers clear of slapstick cliché and keeps the comedy coming, right to its violently funny ending.
February 5, 2008
John Huston's Prizzi's Honor packs love, sex, and murder -- and dark comedy -- into a labyrinthine tale.
February 5, 2008
As usual, Turner works hard and manages to lend some conviction to a shoddily written part, but she can't connect with Nicholson, whose obscure hamminess leaves him isolated on some other planet.
July 25, 2006
Widely considered a black comedy classic, Prizzi's Honor is dated today and, tragically, finally revealed as a middling work that wanders aimlessly and ends abruptly.
| Original Score: 3/5

A very stylish walk with love and death.
February 5, 2005
Yes, it went a little too long, felt a little forced at times, began with one of the most unnecessary lengthy wedding scenes of all-time and ended on a note that simply didn't satisfy, but overall, I enjoyed it and would recommend it.

This is the most bizarre comedy in many a month, a movie so dark, so cynical and so funny that perhaps only Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner could have kept straight faces during the love scenes.

August 22, 2004
A black comedy about an ill-fated love affair and the nasty politics of a criminal clan.

April 12, 2004
As divertidas (e exageradas) performances de Nicholson e Hickey são o ponto alto deste filme apenas regular.

The film itself gets funnier, darker, and more complex as it goes along....

This was the penultimate film from the ailing great director. It is also one of his best.
Full Review | Original Score: 4/4
December 30, 2002
Dreadfully overrated black comedy from John Huston. Daughter Angelica is a rare stand-out.
| Original Score: 2/5
July 25, 2002
A dark, rich comedy that finds Nicholson at the top of his game, per usual. Huston's last great film.
| Original Score: 4/5
June 27, 2002
A wickedly post-modern gangster film
Full Review | Original Score: 79/100
