Fresh, colorful and inventive, Married to the Mob is another offbeat entertainment from director Jonathan Demme.

There is plenty to amuse and delight here, including fine performances from Michelle Pfeiffer, Matthew Modine, and Dean Stockwell.

[Pfeiffer & Demme] and a gang of co-stars have created a coherent farce symphony.

Boston Globe
Married to the Mob is a funny yard sale of a film about regeneration in a junked-up America. [19 Aug 1988]

Chicago Tribune
It's a movie of a thousand pleasures - of glinting insights and sly twists. [19 Aug 1988]

Married to the Mob isn't for all tastes. But for cinematic thrills and spills, it's quite a ride.

Chicago Reader
Director Jonathan Demme's farcical and broad 1988 comedy, written by Barry Strugatz and Mark R. Burns, doesn't really work, but there are plenty of enjoyable compensations.

Empire
Jonathan Demme's follow-up to "Swimming To Cambodia" is a typically entertaining diversion.
60
Married to the Mob works best as a wildly overdecorated screwball farce.
