While Married to the Mob is not a very funny comedy, it is kinda high-style and charming. It has top-notch production values, big names in the cast, and another big name behind the camera. Unfortunately, the material isn't very fresh, and a lot of the characterizations came from the Larry Storch school of comedy, which teaches its pupils how to make very silly faces and hit people over the head with their hats. Both Skipper and Gilligan studied there. Matthew Modine and Mercedes Ruehl turned in especially unsubtle slapstick performances

And Jonathan Demme ... ??

Well, Demme is a good director, but there wasn't that much to work with, and he's not really known for comedy. In fact, Demme did do screwball comedies early in his career, but he obviously turned in another direction in the intervening decade between those days and this film. Did you get a lot of good chuckles out of Demme's other films just before this one - Philadelphia, Beloved, and Silence of the Lambs? If so, I can honestly say that this film is funnier than those three.


But there are some redeeming moments:

  • there is a lounge piano singer who improvises laid-back mob songs when the mob boss strolls into his favorite restaurant. This was the only time in the movie that I actually cracked up. "Hey, he's Tony, Tony the Tiger, he's such a tiger. Thank you, thank you very much."
  • there is a running gag about the mob guys stopping for fast food instead of eating at Italian restaurants all the time
  • Michelle Pfeiffer, while cast against type, wasn't bad at all in a role obviously written with someone like Fran Drescher in mind (big hair, beautician, Joisey accent). You probably have heard that Demme originally wanted Pfeiffer for the lead in Silence of the Lambs because he was impressed with her from the past. This movie was the past he was impressed with.
  • Nancy Travis looked absolutely great in a nude scene (clear shots of breasts and buns), and in facial close-ups as well

By the way, screen veteran Dean Stockwell played Tony "the Tiger" Russo, apparently head of the Sweetened Breakfast Mob, and his capos included:

"Sugar Pops" Pete Petraglia
Kuku "for Cocoa Puffs" Cucucchia
Trix "Rabbit" Triccinnocchi
Benny Fruit Loops
Vito "Captain Crunch" Cronchatelli
Vito "Kid" Chirios

Needless to say, they are all cereal killers
Oops, I guess I imagined all that. Well, he was really named "Tony the Tiger".
