Reviews
Mine: Very funny, very dark. I was infuriated when this did not win Best picture, but 'Out of Africa' did. Great stuff.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Delicious, very offbeat black comedy about a slow-witted hit man from a close-knit Mafia family who gets more than he bargained for when he falls in love with Turner. Nicholson is a joy to watch, matched by a superlative cast (Randolph is a treat as his father). Huston wrings every drop of irony from Richard Condon and Janet Roach's wry screenplay (based on Condon's novel). Beautifully photographed by Andrzej Bartkowiak. Anjelica Huston won Best Supporting Actress Oscar for her sly performance, directed by her father.
