The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Missing from Married to the Mob, written by Barry Strugatz and Mark R. Burns, is the freewheeling structure, but everything else that makes Demme one of the friendliest of major U.S. directors is in glorious evidence. [19 Aug 1988]

Jonathan Demme's follow-up to "Swimming To Cambodia" is a typically entertaining diversion.
