        Demme's zany staging works, mostly because he found the perfect cast to pull this movie off.

        A surprise, as Pfeiffer warmly engages as the mob wife tired of the mob life. Caricatures, sure, but still vibrant, warm and fun. Coulda used more Ruehl and Cusack, but whatcha gonna do?

        Angela de Marco: God, you people work just like the mob! There's no difference. Regional Director Franklin: Oh, there's a big difference, Mrs. de Marco. The mob is run by murdering, thieving, lying, cheating psychopaths. We work for the President of the United States of America. Angela De Marco (Michelle Pfeiffer) wants out of her marriage to Frankie "The Cucumber" DeMarco (Alec Baldwin) because she longs for a life without all the worries that come with being part of the Mafia. But he gets knocked permanently out of the picture by Mob Boss Tony Russo when he slips up and has an affair with waitress Karen Lutnick, who also happens fooling around with Tony. Angela uses the opportunity to cut ties with her past in the hope of starting a new, honest life for herself and her young son. It isn't going to be as easy as she had hoped, since she is being spied upon by FBI agent Mike Downey, who poses as her neighbor to get closer to her. He later falls in love with her after he realizes that she is innocent pawn. Mercedes Ruehl steals the show as the paranoid and jealous wife of the Mafia boss, Dean Stockwell who plays her philandering husband Tony. Hilarious scene at the end which will have you cracking up between hubbie and the spurned wife lol! "Kiss it good bye"
