My main memory of this film was when I was a video store clerk and we had a cardboard stand-up of Momma with a button to hear a recording of Anne Ramsey yelling at customers to rent her movie. It was pretty funny at first, but I wanted to kill the Momma stand after awhile too. We actually took the batteries out when the manager wasn't there so we wouldn't have to hear it. But to the film itself, this is a hilariously dark comedy from director/star Danny DeVito. I remember being taken aback by DeVito's meek, quiet character after having primarily associated him with the wildly aggressive Louie De Palma from "Taxi," and also being very surprised with what a inventive and darkly funny director DeVito was. The film still holds up as a very funny and very twisted, but still if a easily palatable way for mainstream audiences thanks to Billy Crystal. Anne Ramsey very much deserved her bet supporting actress nomination for the hideous Momma. It was also fun to see a young Kate Mulgrew in a comic performance after seeing her in so many serious roles later (and now seeing her much older in a comic role again on "Orange is the New Black"). David Newman also does what I think is one of his best scores, which is peppy and also a throwback to classic films, just as the story is a throwback to Hitchcock. The other major star of this film for me is director of photography Barry Sonnenfeld, who was on fire at this time with this film, working with the Coen Brothers, "Big", "When Harry Met Sally", and "Misery." For how great this film is, it's surprising that this was the only feature film written by Stu Silver, who wrote pretty much for TV before and after this film. Overall, it's a wonderfully dark comedy that I think will appeal to most viewers.
