Pretty good -- nice-looking -- black comedy with less copouts than usual.

Trying to wring yocks from a deranged couple locked in mortal combat over possession of their house is more suited to film noir than black comedy.

DeVito exerts a control behind the camera that is otherwise almost nonexistent in contemporary American film comedy.

The film just keeps getting darker and more claustrophobic, like sliding down the center of a spiral.

Greatly amusing, but its lasting achievement is DeVito's atmospheric authority, shaping a genuine filmmaking triumph in style and mood that deserves a standing ovation.

DeVito's taste for unorthodox camera angles and striking camera movements occasionally verges on overreaching but for the most part admirably serves the action.

New York Times

May 20, 2003

DeVito's direction is distinctively odd (with a lot of low-angle shots looking up at things), enjoyably mischievous and always somehow mindful that there may be, at the heart of all this comic mayhem, something substantial going on.

One of the most durable -- and characteristic -- comedies of the 1980s.

De Vito's quirky camera angles and Kathleen Turner's steely-eyed spite inject a sadistic comic-strip madness into a film that for once has the nerve to see its nastiness through.

Wildly funny and deeply disturbing.

DeVito triumphs by instilling this caustic satire with truth and consequence.
