It's tempting to dismiss "Wise Guys" as a pointless, ill-advised forebear to "Dumb and Dumber." But even if only for an act, you sense De Palma striving for more artful zaniness a la the Marx Brothers or a grimmer side of the Ealing Comedy spectrum.
A mid-career faux pas, or the director's equivalent of the coruscating, laugh-stuck-in-your-throat dissonance of The King of Comedy?
Brian DePalma, who made some funny movies years ago, seems to have lost his touch.
A waste of celluloid.
A lame Mob comedy, proving Piscopo is not movie material
A terrific piece of throwaway entertainment.
I know this movie doesn't get a lot of love, but it's got a few great gags in it. Piscopo is even pretty descent.
A fantastic dark comedy about gangsters, I loved this movie.
The thing about Wise Guys is that itâ€™s actually not that bad at all. Since De Palma is the heir to Hitchcock, itâ€™s only fair that you relate this to Mr. and Mrs. Smith. It just shows that he can do anything. Heâ€™s not just a suspense storyteller, he can also show off his literal sense of humor. Danny DeVito is hilarious and there is also a very funny performance by Harvey Keitel. Itâ€™s not amazing, but probably better than most people give it credit for.
The funnies thing this spawned was a parody by three pidgeons on a Disney cartoon. Very silly but I had to giggle.
