Editorial Reviews

Richard Dreyfuss heads an all-star cast in this wickedly funny crime comedy that explodes with rapid-fire wit and deadly double-crosses. It's a wonderfully warped glimpse of the criminal underworld, where insanity reigns and the barbs and bullets fly. Dreyfuss is Vic, a mob boss who's crazy. Literally. After his release from a mental hospital, he returns to find that his organization is crumbling and no wonder! With friends like his, who needs enemies? There's Mickey Holiday (Jeff Goldblum), the hired gun whose lightning-fast hands have been all over Vic's girlfriend (Diane Lane); Ben London(Gabriel Byrne), the slow-witted goon who sees himself replacing Vic as the gang's mastermind (evenif no one else can see it); and the luscious Rita (Ellen Barkin), a bombshell who could detonate atany moment. Vic struggles to 'restore the balance, but as he sorts through the myriad of loopy schemes against him, one thing becomes clear: he may be the only one who isn't crazy! With appearancesby Gregory Hines, Burt Reynolds and Kyle MacLachlan, Trigger Happy is a comedy masterwork! (American Urban Radio Networks).

MDT is a gem. Bizarre and very funny. If you like any of the actors in this film, and you have a taste for the bizarre and dark humor, chances are you'll find a lot to love here. Dreyfuss, Goldblum, MacLachlan, Reynolds, Silva, Byrne are all great. Be the first in your mob to discover this.

1996's MADS DOG TIME is quirky fun. This little hoodlum black comedy is the stuff cult films are made of. Unorthodox at best, this film contains a great cast and very interesting characters. The cast truly is fantastic including Richard Dreyfuss, Gabriel Byrne, Jeff Goldblum, Burt Reynolds, Henry Silva, Joey Bishop, Diane Lane, Ellen Barkin, Kyle MacLachlan, Michael J. Pollard, Richard Pryor, Paul Anka, Gregory Hines and the long lost enigmatic Christopher Jones not seen since RYAN'S DAUGHTER. Larry Bishop produced, directed and wrote this wild screenplay. The more you watch it, the more you see. Highly underrated.

This is a fun film that was released to relative obscurity, but is a hidden gem. The film centers on the events surrounding a mob boss who is getting out of the looney bin and all of the power plays surrounding him. Great acting by the entire cast. The director does an excellent job of building a quirky mob world filled with great characters such as Sleepy Joe and Brass Balls Ben London. This movie has been released under two titles even here in the states, I have a copy of the vhs under the other title which was Trigger Happy. Ironically both titles come from the same line in the movie. This is one of my top picks for those who like mobster movies, funny movies or movies that are just plain fun. Actors include, Jeff Goldblum in one of his best roles, Richard Dreyfuss and Gabriele Byrn to name a few but it is a large ensemble cast and has many cameos including Angie Everhart, Burt Reynolds, and even Richard Pryor. Check this one out and enjoy.

I happen to like MAD DOG TIME (or TRIGGER HAPPY as I first knew it) very much indeed, but I like a great many strange and flawed films.

It seems to me that the makers of this film are poking fun at both the harmless gangsters of GUYS AND DOLLS and ROBIN AND THE SEVEN HOODS, and at the High Seriousness of THE GODFATHER and its progeny. I know of only one Gangster film that surpasses it in outright weirdness - ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA - and the only one that is more darkly comic is GOODFELLAS, which most people treat as serious drama.

If you ever scoffed at the good hearted gangsters of the '50's and 60's musicals, or laughed at the pretensiousness of 70's and 80's gangster noir, you may like this film a lot. Or you may hate it. It is a very peculiar vision, and not to all tastes. But don't dismiss it without a look. There will probably never be another film anything like it.

I rented this in VHS format years ago after seeing a trailer for it on a movie I owned. (After seeing the trailer 10 times I finally remembered to look for it at the video store). It wasn't anything like I expected it to be, but I loved it.

In fact, I bought the VHS. It was too expensive to purchase retail (price was close to $100), but I was lucky and found it at a second-hand movie/music store. (bought it for $6.00 Candadian). I have since worn it out and plan to buy the DVD.

The cast obviously had fun making this movie. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of any of the actors in this film.

This little-known gem of a movie is a real treat. Until I saw this, "Goodfellas" was my favorite goodfella and crime don movie, but this movie may push that movie down to #2. There is a large, wonderful cast and the movie strikes just the right tone and balance. I've watched it twice so far and a third viewing is on my schedule.....give it a try. You'll be surprised at how good it is.

This was a quirky,dark comedy that some people don't seem to get, but I thought it was great. I'd seen it years ago, and then last year it came on TV over at my brother's house, so i had him watch it, and he loved it,as well. I thought an uncle of mine would really appreciate it, so I grabbed a copy to show him, and any others that want to see it. The price I got here was too good to pass up

This is only rating for the blu-ray release. The movie is one of the finest hidden gems. Unfortunately, ''Olive'' decided not to bother with trying to present a better transfer. It represent upgrade only in terms of resolution. Picture quality is actually for two stars and the third one is for the effort to put this great film on blu-ray ... Gabriel Byrne is easily Oscar material here.
