Decent story idea, but the over the top execution spoils it
2 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

THE WEDDING RING is an episode of the AMAZING STORIES TV series directed by and starring Danny DeVito. It was based on a story by Spielberg which has some mileage as it's about a cursed wedding ring that once belonged to a notorious murderess who was executed for being a 'black widow'. The ring falls into the possession of a mousy waitress who undergoes a horrifying transformation when she wears it.

DeVito is pretty much the only thing this episode has going for it as the execution of the thing is very poor. This plays out as a loud, brash comedy with overacting in every scene and as such it quickly becomes wearisome. DeVito supplies a little decent character work but his real-life wife, Rhea Perlman, doesn't know when to quit and is exceptionally irritating as a result. It's a pity as the story in a nutshell is a good one and with more restraint it could have been watchable.
