This is one fucked up movie but it is entertaining to see how far these two will go to make each other miserable.
Dark, absurd, and wildly funny. Kathleen Turner stands out in particular; all the depraved stuff these two put each other through just escalates perfectly to a fitting end.
Few people tackle dark comedy with such gusto and good humor as Danny DeVito. This film shines as a genre piece turned ugly, and the cast makes it entertaining to watch as it escalates from disdain to all out war.
It's brilliantly shot (the angles were insane!) and completely absurd. I loved it.
Dark. So brilliantly dark. Hilarious.
I fuckin' love this movie! What's not to love??? Great laughs!
So appropriate for it's time Turner and Douglas are pitch-perfect and fearless. Hilarious and sad, beautifully shot, with the best ending possible.
