Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide
Director Danny DeVito guides this black comedy with a demented oddball vision and also turns in a magnificently eccentric performance as the diminutive schnook, Owen. The film itself is a sickly hilarious Keystone capers-style comedy punctuated by some great acting and dialogue. Billy Crystal gives a nice performance in the lead, but it is the late Anne Ramsey as the ghoulish Momma who makes your skin crawl even as you howl with laughter. The story borrows its favor-for-a-favor murder premise from Alfred Hitchcock's Strangers on a Train, and then spins it into a slapstick riot. Filled with great gags and such classic knee-slapping one-liners as (when DeVito is trying to persuade Crystal to kill Momma) "Well, at least meet her, maybe she'd be someone you'd like to kill." This is well-written, funny stuff, making this film one of the better comedies of the late 20th century.

    Thoroughly entertaining

    Highly entertaining, one of those outrageously ridiculous and original plots that actually works well, great performances by all, interesting to see Kate Mulgrew playing the role of the ex-wife (a new one for her)
