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.

    4 out of 10

    What was the story? I couldn't figure it out. The movie lost its touch when Bill Murray did not have a large role. He wasn't funny in it either. I expected more out of him, in comedy-sense. The plot was ridiculous. Why not Bill Murray pull his gun out and shoot DeNiro and be done with it? That would have saved a lot of time and my time. The mingling between De Niro and Thurman was so embarrassing that I had a hard time watching it. I felt embarrassed when I saw De Niro trying to do, ya know, that part...it felt too weird. All right, the movie sucks. It was slow. It was boring. It got 4 since it was short, thank you. I personally recommend you to skip this one cause it aint a Deniro film or even a Murray film. If you wanna see Uma naked, get this one and see it for a brief time, be done with it. Now you know what she looks like when she is denuded. All right, this is a disposable entertainment.
