This is a frothy, semi-farcical tale of mobsters, molls, the FBI, and the divine Michelle Pfeiffer`s hair.
Pfeiffer, as murdered mobster Frank`s young, disaffected widow Angie DeMarco, and Dean Stockwell as mob boss Tony `the Tiger` Russo, are the chief reasons for seeing this romp, as well as a scary Mercedes Ruehl as Tony`s frenziedly jealous wife.
Matthew Modine, so effective in other films, is oddly colourless here, rather like a taller Chris O`Donnell in both looks and blandness. I can think offhand of a dozen
other actors who would have made the part of the lovestruck young FBI agent far more interesting, as well as funnier. Modine doesn`t seem to quite have the measure of the film he`s in, which is a larky comedy-drama. (Jeff Daniels, so good in director Demme`s superior Something Wild, might have been a happier choice.)
However, there`s so much to enjoy, and Michelle was on a roll back in the eighties, turning out a variety of unforgettable character studies, with a wit and offbeat humour few other actresses could, or can, match.
I`d give this 7 or 8 out of ten, but it`s definitely a film to see at least once. Just don`t expect too much. Also, the ending is much too nudge-nudge cute, as if Demme couldn`t be bothered to finish his film with a credible flourish, preferring to resort to `winking` at the audience. Most of the time he negotiates the drama and comedy, keeping the balls in the air with flair and a deft script, but cops out at the end.
Joan Cusack and Alec Baldwin (as Angie`s doomed husband) have effective cameos, and the music is provided by David Byrne, with a soundtrack of songs punctuating the madcap action.
Mostly, great fun. And Pfeiffer`s just fine.
