    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.
  4. Missing from Married to the Mob, written by Barry Strugatz and Mark R. Burns, is the freewheeling structure, but everything else that makes Demme one of the friendliest of major U.S. directors is in glorious evidence. [19 Aug 1988]

  7. Married to the Mob picks up pace throughout and builds to an exciting finish. [19 Aug 1988]

    Married to the mob is a great comedy-drama. The cast is terrific and the story is atypical from mob
    spoofs. The movie will surprise with its
    approach to the comedy you usually see in familiar comedies. Expand

    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.

    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. Expand

    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. Expand
