Editorial Reviews

In the zany, outrageous tradition of DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS and RUTHLESS PEOPLE, SCENES FROM A MALL teams up comedy's ultimate mix of combustible fun -- Bette Midler and Woody Allen! She's a best-selling pop psychologist; he's a high-powered sports lawyer. Together, they're the perfect '90s couple! During a shopping spree in an upscale mall, this Beverly Hills duo's seemingly happy marriage takes an outlandish turn for the worse when they try to work out some of their marital differences -- and it ends up costing them lots more than they bargained for. You'll cash in on a great deal of fun when you check out this hilarious adventure about marriage, infidelity, and bargain shopping!

Customer Reviews

The disk did not work.
Richard Brownell
His character in this movie, in my opinion, does not engage the sympathy of the viewer at the same level as characters he has successfully created in the past.
Andrew
Laughter and expected humor are not under done and some may think it's too predictable.

This film is about a couple celebrating their wedding anniversary at a Los Angeles shopping mall. The celebration is bittersweet because the husband(Woody Allen) admits his affair to his wife(Bette Midler). The wife remains angry for a while but eventually forgives her husband. Allen and Midler have done better films than this. Midler's much better films include DOWN AND OUT IN BEVERLY HILLS,RUTHLESS PEOPLE and BIG BUSINESS(all made by Buena Vista like this one). Allen's subsequent film MANHATTAN MURDER MYSTERY from 1993 was much better than this.

Lets talk Scenes from a Mall. Starring Woody Allen and Bette Midler in this smart, talky, funny, challenging, heatwarming, sad, tear jerking, Christmas holiday fun! Nothing in this film is wrong except maybe the length, which in my opinion, could be extended some what with more laughs.
Starting out at home, leaving the kids to go on a holiday skiing trip, on their sixteenth aniversary they prepare for an all day Christmas shopping spree at the local mall. When they get there they are already confronted with the zany antics of a mime (played well by Bill Irwin from the GRINCH). They exchange aniversary gifts and then extramarital revelations. With this we see an aray of different emotional acts... crying, screaming, hitting, throwing, talking, etc etc. It all changes in a second, very unexpectedly. That is one of things that makes this movie so good, is that everything is so unexpected. Scenes from a Mall is very unpredictable. With beautiful holiday sequences, sharp laughs, very dry humor, happy thoughts of the past, SFAM will not let you down! Including the awesome adaptions of "You Do Something to Me" by Marc Shaiman and an unmatchable vocal by Marlene Dietrich. Thank you Paul Mazursky for giving me a favorite movie, SCENES FROM A MALL is just that.

Listen, I'm impartial about any movie star, and I haven't sat through many movies in the last two decades, but this one made me laugh, and wait for the next nutty scene.
Why? I think because they caught the silliness of that Southern California bourgeois with Jewish overlay world very well. half the fun was watching Woody Allen's expressions.
I also though the damn mime scene was painfully funny!

This is one of my all time favorite Woody Allen movies. But I think it's the kind of movie you will either love or hate - nothing in between! I am a big Woody Allen fan, but do not like a lot of his movies, so considering how picky I am, that says a lot. My favorite movies of his have been Play It Again Sam, Annie Hall, Manhattan, A Midsummer Night's Sex Comedy, Zelig, New York Stories, Mighty Aphrodite, Vicky Cristina Barcelona and probably a few others I forgot. Least favorite (many!) but the worst ever was Curse of the Jade Scorpion... Anyway, if you like "Jewish-ness" you will like this film, I think it's a real sleeper!

I'm a Woody Allen fan. I've seen most of his movies and have enjoyed most (but not all) of them. I found this movie amusing but falling a bit short of his better work. His character in this movie, in my opinion, does not engage the sympathy of the viewer at the same level as characters he has successfully created in the past. This is not to say he doesn't do a good job with it, it's just to say he didn't "reach" me in this character as he has previously.

Bette Midler was absolutely perfect in the role of his all-too-human, far-less-than-perfect wife. (I'm not necessarily a Midler fan, but kudos to her in this role. Great job, Bette.)

Still, I would certainly recommend this film for the purpose of killing a couple of hours of otherwise available time. It's not going to educate or elevate you, it will not ask you to re-evaluate your life, but you will chuckle . . . and, sometimes, that's quite enough. It's a pleasantly diverting bit of fluff.

Yes, it's hard to believe that 'nervous' Woody Allen and 'brassy' Bette Middler would ever tie the knot but their characters have done here - to consistent comic effect! They play a yuppie couple who spend a day at an L.A mall preparing for their anniversary celebration. What works here is how quickly the tone of the couples relationship changes when either party reveal a secret. One minute it's "I adore you" and the next "I hope you die in hell!". There are plenty of laughs here and both stars are in top form. It's not a comedy with much depth or insight like Bette's "Beaches" or Woody's "Manhattan" but it scores well in a mainstream movies most important category - entertainment!

I've never understood why this movie was so panned and disliked by moviegoers. I have to assume that most viewers just didn't have a great deal of sophistication. This movie does, however, and Midler is especially amazing. The dialogue just flows so naturally, and the couple's superficial life and marraige delves into its past to recall what brought them together and what keeps them together. Moving, funny and so well done.
