She can hardly wait.

Angela DeMarco (Michelle Pfeiffer) seems like a typical Long Island housewife and mother.

No film has dared to lampoon the mob as accurately or as hilariously as Jonathan Demme's 1988 masterpiece "Married To The Mob". With a great script, a superb cast and an excellent soundtrack courtesy of Talking Head David Byrne, this film is enjoyable from start to finish.

Angela DeMarco (Michelle Pfeiffer) seems like a typical Long Island housewife and mother. But there's a catch: her husband "Cucumber" Frank DeMarco (Alec Baldwin) is a ruthless mobster working for reputed crime boss Tony "The Tiger" Russo (Dean Stockwell in an Oscar nominated performance). Everything the DeMarcos own has been obtained by murder, laundering and stealing. And Angela wants out. So when Frank is iced by Tony for dating his mistress, Angela sees it as an oppurtunity to escape from the mob and start her own life. The problem, Tony and his gang follow her every move. Also on her tail is FBI agent Mike Downey (Matthew Modine), an undercover agent assigned to arrest her but insteads falls for her. To add to this confusion, Tony's manic wife Connie (a scene stealing Mercedes Ruehl) thinks Angela is having an affair with Tony and is bent on destroying both of them. And when Angela is arrested by the FBI and faces jailtime, she has a choice: go behind the bars or take Tony down.

This is an absolutely brilliant comedy. Michelle Pfeiffer turns in one of her all time best performances in this, capturing Angela to a t. In addition to the lead characters, there's also fine supporting work by actors like Joan Cusack, Oliver Platt, Colin Quinn, Nancy Travis and Chris Isaak. This is definitely a must have movie that I'd recommend to most people.

Angela DeMarco (Michelle Pfeiffer) whose husband Frank (Alec Baldwin), a mob hitman who has just been "iced" himself, desparately wants to make a new life for herself and her 7 year old son. That would mean moving out of her posh home furnished with stolen merchandise and giving up her friendships with the wives of the mob leaders. She can hardly wait. The problem is that the mob boss, Tony Russo (Dean Stockwell), won't let Angela alone. Tony is a ladies' man and happens to have a crush on Angela.
"Married to the Mob" is one funny flick. Michelle Pfeiffer is absolutely perfect in the role of the hitman's widow. Besides being an incredibly gorgeous and street wise woman, she is altogether convincing and sympathetic as the Mafia wife. Dean Stockwell lends to his role as the fearless Mafia boss just the right touch of dignity and bravado mixed with a droll, deadpan personality that is just right for the part. Mercedes Ruehl is side-splittingly hilarious as mob boss Stockwell's insanely jealous wife, Connie, who is the only person that her husband truly fears. Ruehl steals every scene that she is in. I personally feel that Matthew Modine was miscast in the role of the F.B.I. man and Pfeiffer's protector and love interest, but Modine did a satisfactory job in the role.
The movie contains quite a bit of violence, as necessitated by the movie's theme, but the body count acts as a perfect counterpart to this often zany and, yes, loveable film.

An endlessly-delightful romantic comedy with a twist, MARRIED TO THE MOB features Michelle Pfeiffer in one of her finest performances of the period. Angela DiMarco (Pfeiffer) is tired of being a Mafia hit-man's wife. Her husband Frank "The Cucumber" (Alec Baldwin) has furnished a houseful of laundered furniture, appliances and gifts, and their son (Anthony J. Nici) is growing up with a warped set of morals to uphold. When Frank is iced by Mafia boss Tony "The Tiger" (Dean Stockwell) who then begins to take a more than friendly interest in Angela, she decides to pack in her gangster past and moves to New York to start afresh. But her past doesn't seem to want to disappear as Tony pursues her, whilst she is also courted by undercover cop Mike (Matthew Modine).

This is such a fun movie. As I mentioned before, this is probably Pfeiffer's most effective comedy performance of the period, with another cracker performance from Mercedes Ruehl as Tony's crazed wife Connie. Also featuring Joan Cusack, Nancy Travis, Oliver Platt and Charles Napier.

I must admit, I've never been a big 'mafia movie' fan. But this film made the mafia funny, which made it more entertaining for me. If you're the type of person who like laughing and being entertained by movies, then I highly suggest this self-proclaimed 'Godfather on laughing gas' popcorn flick. Michelle Pfieffer (still looking beautiful even though she's a skanky mob wife) plays Angela DeMarco, a woman tired of dealing with the mob. She finds the perfect way out when her husband Frank 'The Cucumber' (Alec Baldwin) is 'iced'. But it seems she never can get away, being tailed by a slimy mob boss, his manical wife (Mercedes Rhuel, hilariously demented) and two government agents (Matthew Modine and Oliver Platt). Basically, it all boils down to a love story between Angela and the agent Mike (Modine) pretending to be a plumber. It's predictable, but gosh darn it, when the two leads are this cute together, you got to love it. The film drags in some places and has an unfortunate dated look but it's upbeat and fun. It makes the most of the 80's as far as music goes. If it's fun you want, check it out but if you're looking for a serious mob film you better 'fuh-get about it'.
