Reviews
Mine: Good stuff. Nice comic performances all around. Middler has never been this good. Plotted well. Some wonderful lines. Very funny.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Wealthy DeVito plans to murder his obnoxious wife--unaware that at that moment she's being kidnapped, and equally unaware that his paramour plans to take him for his dough. Clever farce written by Dale Launer has lots of laughs, bright performances, but turns sour: these really are unpleasant people!
