Good things in small packages
9 July 2001 | by (Philadelphia, PA) – See all my reviews

Yes, it is somewhat hard to imaging Penelope Ann Miller even considering any type of relationship with Danny DeVito. And yes, they really do not explore the apparent rift between Peck's character and Miller's. These two caveats aside, this is a very enjoyable movie. So all tycoons don't look like Richard Gere. This is a tour de force for DeVito. He gets past his diminutive stature and actually becomes Larry the Liquidator.

I was not saddled with having seen (or even heard of) the play. Theater is irrelevant anyway, except as a training ground for movie actors. I took this picture on its own merits, and frankly, I was skeptical that DeVito could do a corporate raider. But he plays it just right and then has you believing that this dwarf from the Bronx really made good. Dean Jones is convincing as the corporate soldier trying to find a soft place to land. Peck is excellent, as always.

Two thumbs up!
