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

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.

A blackly comic and insidiously sly love story in the unforgiving underworld of mob families and freelance criminals...

Huston steers clear of slapstick cliché and keeps the comedy coming, right to its violently funny ending.

John Huston's Prizzi's Honor packs love, sex, and murder -- and dark comedy -- into a labyrinthine tale.

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.

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