    Married to the Mob is a campy, outrageously fun tale that is a mix between "Midnight Run" and "Goodfellas" on how it portrays the Mafia. Instead of focusing on shootout after shootout, the movie resorts more to story and character development, which is a rarity in this genre.

    Both Jonathan Demme and Michelle Pfeiffer give strong early-career performances as director and lead amidst this campy, fun take on hundreds of contemporary Italian mafia films.

  1. Director Jonathan Demme's farcical and broad 1988 comedy, written by Barry Strugatz and Mark R. Burns, doesn't really work, but there are plenty of enjoyable compensations.
  2. Married to the Mob isn't for all tastes. But for cinematic thrills and spills, it's quite a ride.

    Jonathan Demme's follow-up to "Swimming To Cambodia" is a typically entertaining diversion.
