Overview

John McNaughton's underrated comedy Mad Dog and Glory comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The disc does a solid job of capturing Robert Müller's cinematography. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English and French subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. Mad Dog and Glory, which had fallen out of print, features unusual turns from each member of its impressive cast, as well as a typically excellent script from Richard Price, making this disc worthwhile even without a wealth of extras.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Karl Williams
One of the most underrated comedies of the early '90s, this clever caper takes two regularly typecast stars, Bill Murray and Robert De Niro, and reverses their roles. The stars clearly relish sinking their creative fangs into the types of parts normally off limits to them, Murray as a fiendishly arrogant crime boss who really wants to be a comic, De Niro as a nebbish police photographer afraid of his own shadow who is pining to become an artist. They're not the only ones who shine here, however, as the leads are backed up ably by reliable character actors Mike Starr and David Caruso, the latter of whom gives a literally star-making performance of raw masculine power. The cast is backed up by a stellar script from Richard Price, chock full of memorable one-liners ("Your friend is very sarcastic") and unexpected turns, save for a somewhat predictable ending that at least doesn't succeed in derailing all that's come before. Mad Dog and Glory is that rarest of combinations, a delightful farce with genuinely great acting.
