I first saw Ruthless People in a movie theatre back in the mid-eighties. I was crying with laughter during and after the film. It's one of the funniest movies ever made, but, sadly, a picture that's not mentioned when 'experts' discuss the great films.
Everything about this movie is perfect. It's very cleverly written, brilliantly casted and acted, and excellently directed and edited. It's absolutely crammed with funny lines and situations and keeps you laughing from start to finish. For fans of comedy this is a must-see picture.
