Prizzi's Honor

So much of John Huston’s career was a series of big-ideas dramatic films about groups of people banding together and forming a kind of destructive alliance, that it makes perfect sense that towards the end he would turn that thematic obsession into a dark comedy about the Mafia and romance. In his first film, The Maltese Falcon, Huston perfectly captured Dashiell Hammett’s acidic droll, it was... read more

Before watching this flick, I had some rather high expectations. I mean, with such a cast (Jack Nicholson, Kathleen Turner, Anjelica Huston) and such a prestigious director (John Huston), I was expecting something rather brilliant, I mean, even Roger Ebert was really enthousiast about it. Unfortunately, I didn't really like it. I mean, the cast was really good, especially Jack Nicholson and Kathle... read more

It's so tasteful and tongue in cheek, that characters even play with dialogues in their mouths. Old Hickey best of all, but Nicholson is great and wife Anjelica is great too, phrasing the title to provoque grandfather Prizzi. Turner can't compete with them, bus os coherent with her foreing background. Evil and love are endogamic with the Prizzis.

Unfortunately, I didn't really like it. I mean, the cast was really good, especially Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner but I didn't like much the tone of the whole thing. It tries to be a dark comedy and mixes some romantic comedy elements with traditional maffia stuff but I thought the whole thing was rather uneven. Above all, I never really laughed during the whole duration and it is never a good sign when you are watching a comedy. Don't misunderstand me, it is not bad at all, Nicholson and Turner wer” read more

Prizzi's Honor

“So much of John Huston’s career was a series of big-ideas dramatic films about groups of people banding together and forming a kind of destructive alliance, that it makes perfect sense that towards the end he would turn that thematic obsession into a dark comedy about the Mafia and romance. In his first film, The Maltese Falcon, Huston perfectly captured Dashiell Hammett’s acidic droll, it was a meeting of two artists with similar ideals and tastes. In Prizzi’s Honor, Huston continues that tradition of baroque humor in depicting the love triangle at the heart of the story.

Unlike The Godfather, which also told the story of one family’s tarnished reputation and eventual return to prominence in the underworld, the main thrust and tone of Prizzi’s Honor is not some elegiac” read more

Mustanaamio7's Movie Diary - Year 2011 (713 movies items)

"8.5. 2011 During the 60's John Huston already started to lose his touch and afterwards he directed only either average films like "The Man Who Would Be King" or below average films like "Prizzi's Honor", which is a mix of romantic comedy and gangster parody. Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner are decent in their roles as a hit man and hit woman, but there are too many empty moments in the movie. "Prizzi's Honor" seems to lack real purpose because it is neither thought-provoking nor entertaining"
