AMAZED AT THE POSTHUMOUS RECORD SALES OF ELVIS, JIMI HENDRIX BECOMES DETERMINED TO ARRANGE A SIMILAR FATE FOR MARLA, STAGING THE PERFECT TRAGIC DEMISE. BUT HE DIDN'T COUNT ON MARLA NOT BEING QUITE READY TO GO. Written by
Rik Mayall won my sense of humor in the wonderful 80s Britcom, "The Young Ones", which I highly recommend to the uninitiated. Jane Horrocks is extremely talented and does a great job. Danny Aiello plays a wonderfully smart and silly Mafia don. The film is silly. But, I still think silly is funny, when it is done with some intelligence. The best part of this film for me was the sprinkling of fabulously absurd character roles throughout the story. Aiello's bodyguards, the puerile hit man, the insecure security supervisor. All very clever. Ronald Pickup as Mayall's competition is also very funny. If you like the slappy end of Brit comedy, I think this film will satisfy you quite nicely.
