Kill Mamma

This crime comedy may be a bit goofy, but Danny Devito and Billy Crystal are hilarious together. Anne Ramsey is mamma, and let me tell you, I would definitely be on board with Devito to end her life.

Since I always had a weak spot for Danny De Vito, I was quite eager to check this flick. Well, even thought the damned thing was definitely fun, to be honest, it didn’t completely worked and I think it was mostly due to the fact that it was De Vito’s directing debut.

Expect classic black comedy after Owen fulfills his end of the bargain -- and Larry's stuck without an alibi! ... (more)

Well, even thought the damned thing was definitely fun, to be honest, it didn’t completely worked and I think it was mostly due to the fact that it was De Vito’s directing debut. Indeed, the whole thing felt rather unfocused and it took such a long time to finally take off. I mean, the concept definitely had some potential but the way to get there was just too convoluted and not really convincing and therefore the end-result not always really entertaining or, at least, not as entertaining as it could have been. However, I really enjoyed the tone though. Indeed, even if we have nowadays a lot of successful raunchy comedies, we don’t have so many dark comedies like this one and I have a huge weak s” read more

Moviewatcher122's 2016 Film Diary: August (25 movies items)

"August 10 "Owen, what the hell did you do to my wife?" "Ehh, I don't want to say over the phone. All I can tell ya is that I killed her last night." I was expecting this movie to be funny, but I had no idea it would be this funny. It's a hilarious movie that works as a dark comedy and even as a suspenseful thriller. Billy Crystal and Danny DeVito made for a great comedic duo and there was just so many great moments here. I've heard about the frying pan scene before I saw this movie and after"
