Two New Yorkers are accused of murder in rural Alabama while on their way back to college, and one of their cousins--an inexperienced, loudmouth lawyer not accustomed to Southern rules and manners--comes in to defend them.
Lawrence and Freddie are con-men; big-time and small time respectively. They unsuccessfully attempt to work together only to find that this town (on the French Mediterranean coast) aint big... See full summary »
This is a very black comedy. A mob courier is hired to transport the heads of eight murder victims to a mob boss. However, the duffel bag gets mixed up with the bag of a college student who is off on a vacation in Mexico with his girlfriend and her parents. However, the mother is a recovering alcoholic whom everyone believes is delusional when she claims to have found heads. Written by

Laurie, you're not in the hallway. You're in the closet.
Don't you think I realize that? I'm not coming out!
You have to come out.
The bodies are in there.

I was just kidding!

There Are Laughs Everywhere! Terrific Entertainment!
Before you begin calling me crazy (considering the fact that this movie got a low 11% on Rotten Tomatoes), I am going to say that I am a huge fan of Joe Pesci, and I have a sense of humor with a wide range. While this movie's title may sound like it isn't much, it is much. 8 Heads In A Duffel Bag is a great comedy, it is a very funny movie starring Joe Pesci. All throughout the course of this movie, there are laughs everywhere, I mean that when I was watching this movie, there where certain parts in which I was laughing myself silly. While it may not sound like there is anything funny about a mobster committing 8 murders and losing a duffel bag with their heads in them, but for some very weird reason, there was a lot of things in this movie that were so incredibly funny! Joe Pesci was great in this movie, he was funny, and a lot of times, hysterical! Well all in all, this is terrific entertainment, not for the entire family, considering that it is R rated, but still, it is very terrific entertainment! This movie gets a ten out of ten from me.
Joe Pesci is very funny in this movie, here, he plays another one of his psychopathic mobsters, but only this time, he does it in a comedy role, and I like that once in a while, he does a role like his roles from Goodfellas and Casino, but this time around, he does it in a comedy movie. It just goes to show truly what a talented actor Joe Pesci really is, he can play a serious role, or a comedy role, and he can shine in it. He shined in Goodfellas, and he shined Casino, and he shined in 8 Heads In A Duffel Bag! How this movie got a low 11% on Rotten Tomatoes is beyond me, maybe because the critics were expecting a movie like Casino or Goodfellas. Come on, this movie is not supposed to be one of the greatest movies ever made, it is supposed to do what a movie should do, entertain people, and it certainly entertained me! I won't let bad reviews affect my judgement, I believe that this movie is a very funny movie!
Watch this movie was a clear mind, ignore all of the negativity that you have heard and watch this movie yourself, you will laugh your head off at it. What can I say? Sometimes, there are times in which you can't rely on critics, because you can never really tell how good or bad a movie is until you see it for yourself. I am standing by my own opinion, this movie is very funny, it is a hysterical movie that delivers the laughs, as well as the chaos! Get ready to see Joe Pesci in a very hysterical role that will leave you laughing! My applauds to Joe Pesci, who once again has been able to amuse me with his excellent acting abilities! 8 Heads In A Duffel Bag is a hysterical comedy that you will laugh your head off at! Well watch this movie with a clear mind, because if you do that, you can give an honest opinion on it. This movie is mostly funny because it is so outrageous, when you watch it, you will see what I mean.
