"Throw Momma from the Train" is a series of missed opportunities and unexploited situations, a movie that wants to have genuine nastiness at its heart but never quite works up the energy or the nerve to be truly heartless.

Danny DeVito's directing debut seems to indicate he is not yet ready to direct. The characters are neither believable nor likable and the comedy is not funny.

This black comedy careens all over the place to squeeze laughs out of matricide, jealousy, and the ego trip of writers. Most of the time, the humor is strained

You can feel how much fun it was for DeVito to direct this. But the movie's one-note broadness seems suited more to cable.

Better yet, just throw the whole thing in front of a subway and hope it gets dragged a couple of miles.

Danny DeVito directs and stars in this funny, offbeat homage to Alfred Hitchcock thrillers, but it's co-star Billy Crystal who brings all the elements together

Very clever and engaging from beginning to end, pic builds on the notion that nearly everyone - at least once in life - has the desire to snuff out a relative or nemesis, even if 99.9% of us let the urge pass without ever acting on it.

If it all gets a little soft-centred towards the end, there's more than enough vitality and invention to be going on with.
