Quotes

Beer Pitchman: When I come home from a long day in Hell, there's nothing I'd rather reach for than a fire-brewed bottle of Styx Beer. Made from the filthiest waters from our own River Styx. Styx Beer is a third more toxic than any other regular beer. The worst beer - the filthiest beer - the deadliest beer. It's Styx Beer!

A Clever Comedy
13 May 1999 | by (Iowa City, IA) – See all my reviews

HtH is basically a comedy, accompanied by the overacting talents of the Stillers, Anne Meara, and Gilbert Gottfried. There's some nice plays on Christianity, the Devil as a mildly sympathetic (or at least likeable) figure, and Lowe and Swanson make a likeable enough couple. There's nothing really "horrific" here. Rather, Helegeland indulges in a lot of satirical writing. Look for how highways are paved in Hell, and Cerberus guarding the gates, for some more amusing scenes. Basically an underrated and underviewed movie that deserves more attention. Check it out if you can.
