Trivia

The Italian family in Susie's apartment hums the tune "Funiculì, funiculà" written in 1880 by Giuseppe Turco and Luigi Lenza to honor the inauguration of the Vesuvius funicular, which took people to the top of the famous volcano located near Neaples, Italy. "Funiculì, funiculà" is one of the most famous Neapolitan songs ever. See more »

Pushing the Envelope
1 January 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

As the characters try to negotiate their next moves, there are some things here that go a little overboard. I did enjoy the treasure maps and the fact the Joel's family has thousands of dollars hidden. What happened here, however, is that Midge seemed to slip into her comedic character, with all its bite and fury, in a situation where it was totally inappropriate. She did have a bit to drink, but for someone as insightful as she seems to be, her actions were deplorable. Then, there is the full frontal nudity, which seems like a cheap form of going beyond for its own sake. I hope they can get back on track again. I continue to enjoy Susie's character very much.
