Trivia

So many scenes didn't make it into the movie that Jonathan Demme decided to place them at the end during the credits, to retell the story. See more »

Goofs

At about 52 Minutes into the movie a sniper shoots 2 men in a moving vehicle. First he shoots the man in the passenger seat and you see a close up of the bullet hole in the windshield. Then before he even shoots the second man driving the car you see another shot of the car and windshield and there's two bullet holes in the windshield when there should only be one because he hadn't shot the second man yet.

Quotes

Stewardess: Madame, you're supposed to stay in your seat until the plane comes to a complete stop.
Connie Russo: Honey, forget about it!

Crazy Credits

The first part of the end credits are outtakes edited from the movie and different angles of scenes that were in it. Director Demme said he was trying to recreate the movie with the last part of the credits-where 'Angela' and 'Mike' chase each other and dance around the steps of the NYC Supreme Court building being a coda.

One of the funniest films I've ever seen!
15 April 2002 | by LMorlandSee all my reviews

I had to write this review because the only user comments on file don't begin to do this film justice. For one thing, Michelle Pfeiffer is TERRIFIC in this role -- she demonstrates a marvelous comedic style we don't often get to see. (Maybe the other reviewer prefers her serious work, but I dispute the comment that Pfeiffer has "matured" beyond this role. It's a comedy, for goodness' sake!)

And yes, Alec Baldwin is quite good, but it's Matthew Modine who steals the picture! (He also has much more screen time.) Mercedes Ruehl and Dean Stockwell (as Tony 'The Tiger' Russo) are absolutely delicious. The plot is delightful, and sometimes manages to touch on some more somber issues, as all great comedies do.

In short, I've seen this hilarious film two or three times over the years, and thinking about it now makes me eager to watch it all over again!
