It's a - a toaster.
It's a Toast-R-Oven. Whoa. Hey, it's a nice one. A lot of buttons. Hit this button, pops open. You could put anything in here. A slice of pizza; pastry. You pop it in, comes out. Crust is crisp. Microwave don't do that. You ever tried cooking calzone in a microwave? Comes out like a limp dick.

Featherweight dark comedy about a sexy bloodsucker, though exceptionally well-done
John Landis is not the type of director who goes for any deeper meaning in his films outside of the occasional well-staged car chase in heavy traffic; however, this time, working with Michael Wolk's first-rate screenplay, he excels in narrative as well as in visual form. An undercover cop in Pittsburgh, posing as a thief for the Mob, becomes attracted to the scintillating French woman who is hellbent on killing kingpin Robert Loggia (seems she's a bloodsucker by night--and forgot to "finish the food" the evening she put the bite on Loggia's Sal the Shark!). Not terribly bright, but full of puckish black humor and one exciting, masterfully staged sequence after another. And when things calm down a bit, as with the motel sequence between hot twosome Anne Parillaud and Anthony LaPaglia, Landis is adept at smoothly changing the movie's rhythm. It's an impressive, gory, foul-mouthed, yet adrenalized and satirical piece of work, Landis' best. *** from ****
