5.0 out of 5 stars Prizzi's Honor
Veteran Director John Huston's penultimate film is a black comedy masterpiece written by the author of the novel Richard Condon who co-wrote with Janet Roach the screenplay; Jack Nicholson heads up the cast as the dim-witted Mafia contract killer (Charley Partanna) that unknowing falls for fellow hit person Irene Walker (Kathleen Turner) in the process of having a...

3.0 out of 5 stars HONOR JACK
I love jack nicholson but i feel this film is not his best or even the his co stars best but it has it moments of good, i enjoyed it as far as 3/5 but i wouldnt rush to see it again. I felt it lacked something it didnt hold my attention as much as it shouldve, i was little shocked to read it was up for so many oscars when some other films struggle to get one or two but...

Not Jack's best role. Not close infact. Much better out there, best just sweep this one under the carpet, unfortunately.

4.0 out of 5 stars Close to great but not quite there, 11 April 2010

This film could have been so much better. It's still good, it has a lot of fine scenes in it and Nicholson and Turner are great leads. For me, the film suffers from too much 80's stylising. Overall, still well worth seeing.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bullets are hitting the wrong targets and missing the right ones, 11 April 2007

This review is from: Prizzi's Honor [DVD] [1985] (DVD)
When the mafia becomes the argument of an action film and little more it is no longer funny, it is no longer strange, it is no longer fascinating. It is nothing but outlandish and terroristic. It takes all Jack Nicholson can give to make these characters in anyway palatable, and even so. In the Prizzi family all other considerations than the family is outlawed, except maybe for a couple of weeks and the woman concerned by this out-breeding passing passion has to submit and take the color of the wall on which she is being pinned. If she does not then she will be executed and cut off. There is no depth in that film, no subtleties or even subtlety. Get the message, bang it down on the table and then cram it down your brain. Business is business and in-breeding is the rule. I will always wonder why a hit-woman with a reputation of efficiency and effectiveness misses her husband when he intends to kill her though she manages to shoot one bullet first. Suspend your disbelief and incredulity. The cinema is the new church of the visual dominant animal man is. To see is to believe. But at times to believe is easier when you are blind, and probably deaf too. Apart from that it is interesting even if we do spend a little bit too much time in planes going east and planes going west, kind of an airlift between New York, or whatever may titillate you, and Los Angeles, or whatever it takes to please you.
