Dreadfully overrated black comedy from John Huston. Daughter Angelica is a rare stand-out.
| Original Score: 2/5

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

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.

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.

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

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

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