Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Pfeiffer is at her best, and there's plenty of action, although you may feel that some of the gags involving a scorned and vengeful wife (Mercedes Ruehl) are a bit shopworn."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Miss Pfeiffer, who looks utterly ravishing in outfits that set the teeth on edge, turns Angela's plight into something funny, but she seems eminently sane even when the movie does not."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"A gangster film with a twist and the idiosyncratic Demme touch."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
‑ Fernando F. Croce, CinePassion
"Pfeiffer is superb in a delightful farce"
‑ James Sanford, Kalamazoo Gazette
"The enormous cast is a total delight, starting with Pfeiffer, with hair dyed dark, a New York accent and a continuously nervous edge."
‑ Variety Staff, Variety
"Demme keeps his characters (scripted by Barry Strugatz and Mark R. Burns) from wandering into the Buffoon Zone."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"A fluffy but entertaining comedy."
‑ , Film4
"Everything in it is wonderfully right."
‑ Rob Gonsalves,
"Pfeiffer is outstanding."
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Amazingly, for all its hip anarchy, it's finally an oddly old-fashioned slice of entertainment. Preston Sturges might have approved."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"A mix of goofy ethnicity, romance and self-discovery, "Married to the Mob" is an offer you can't refuse."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"A lot of fun to watch, thanks to a darn sturdy cast and a director with a sublime ability to make fluff seem deeper than it really is."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Unconventional romantic comedy with a slap and a tickle."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"A light-hearted comedy about one woman's dream to remake her life"
‑ Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality and Practice
