Product Description

Product Description

When her unfaithful gangster husband Frank is murdered, Angela DeMarco (Michelle Pfeiffer) sees it as the perfect opportunity to break free from the tacky world of the mafia wives. But with Frank's old boss Tony the Tiger (Dean Stockwell) trying to make her his mistress and the FBI pressuring her to help put the mob behind bars, going straight proves more difficult than she first thought.

From Amazon.co.uk

Angela de Marco (Michelle Pfeiffer) is fed up with her life Married to the Mob. As luck would have it, her hubby Frank (Alec Baldwin) is knocked off by head honcho Tony "the Tiger" Russo (an Oscar-nominated Dean Stockwell), which leaves her free to start a new life in the Big Apple. The only problem is that the FBI are desperate to nab Tony, and manage to send the one Agent (Matthew Modine) most likely to fall in love with her. Plot-wise, then, this is predictable fluff. The joys are in the details of Jonathan Demme's direction: New York's streets come alive under his hand-held camerawork; a lot of dialogue is comically delivered direct to camera (a device he used for dramatic effect later with The Silence of the Lambs); and background characters each leave their mark given memorable--often-hilarious--screen time. As a black comedy it isn't quite so memorable as Demme's explosive earlier work on Something Wild, but if there's one thing sure to stick with you here it's the sensationally colourful late-80s fashions and hairstyles.

On the DVD: Married to the Mob is a bare-bones release that only adds a trailer. It is presented in its original widescreen ratio, however, and for the most part the transfer is pretty clean. --Paul Tonks

This is a frothy, semi-farcical tale of mobsters, molls, the FBI, and the divine Michelle Pfeiffer`s hair.
Pfeiffer, as murdered mobster Frank`s young, disaffected widow Angie DeMarco, and Dean Stockwell as mob boss Tony `the Tiger` Russo, are the chief reasons for seeing this romp, as well as a scary Mercedes Ruehl as Tony`s frenziedly jealous wife.
Matthew Modine, so effective in other films, is oddly colourless here, rather like a taller Chris O`Donnell in both looks and blandness. I can think offhand of a dozen
other actors who would have made the part of the lovestruck young FBI agent far more interesting, as well as funnier. Modine doesn`t seem to quite have the measure of the film he`s in, which is a larky comedy-drama. (Jeff Daniels, so good in director Demme`s superior Something Wild, might have been a happier choice.)
However, there`s so much to enjoy, and Michelle was on a roll back in the eighties, turning out a variety of unforgettable character studies, with a wit and offbeat humour few other actresses could, or can, match.
I`d give this 7 or 8 out of ten, but it`s definitely a film to see at least once. Just don`t expect too much. Also, the ending is much too nudge-nudge cute, as if Demme couldn`t be bothered to finish his film with a credible flourish, preferring to resort to `winking` at the audience. Most of the time he negotiates the drama and comedy, keeping the balls in the air with flair and a deft script, but cops out at the end.
Joan Cusack and Alec Baldwin (as Angie`s doomed husband) have effective cameos, and the music is provided by David Byrne, with a soundtrack of songs punctuating the madcap action.
Mostly, great fun. And Pfeiffer`s just fine.

Very dated now, and a bit naff, can be annoying in places. Just doesn't quite work, though Pfeiffer does her best to raise the quality, the actors were just not comedic and the plot not really that funny.

I just love this late 80`s mob comedy. It seems the director was on a roll, this came after the excellent Something Wild and next would be the hugely successful Silence of the Lambs. Those two films are darker but if i could pick only one it would be this, the whole cast is great and it`s the kind of film i could watch anytime. The dvd transfer is better than i expected but it would be much better if it was remastered (not popular enough for that!). Enjoy.

Michelle Pfeiffer is ideally cast as the frustrated mob widow in this colourful black comedy. Matthew Modine plays a clumsy FBI agent who has taken a fancy to her. Dean Stockwell steals the show as the big shot who keeps on pestering Pfeiffer; Mercedes Ruehl is dynamic as his jealous wife. It's all very eighties, but that just adds to the fun. A nice little flick, though not for every taste.
