    Even in the classiest movie summer of the decade, Mob is destined to demand respect for Pfeiffer. [19 Aug 1988]

    Fresh, colorful and inventive, Married to the Mob is another offbeat entertainment from director Jonathan Demme.

    Director Jonathan Demme has nailed one with this playful, but dangerous, gangster farce.

    There is plenty to amuse and delight here, including fine performances from Michelle Pfeiffer, Matthew Modine, and Dean Stockwell.

    Married to the mob is a great comedy-drama. The cast is terrific and the story is atypical from mob

    Married to the mob is a very amusing comedy-drama. The movie has elements of Midnight Run and Goodfellas mixed together. The characters are well developed in the movie which is different because often they aren't. The movie has less action than other crime dramas because the movie is a spoof of the mafia crime genre.
