THROW MOMMA FROM THE TRAIN (Theatrical Release USA 1987)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Throw Momma From The Train
—substantially well-written comedy—provides value for the entertainment dollar. The script thrives due to Danny DeVito’s direction and the excellent casting choice that pairs DeVito with Billy Crystal. The love/hate relationship that, sometimes, can exist between close family members gets a thorough examination. The film provides great entertainment at every level.

Owen (Danny DeVito) develops a fool-proof method to get away with murder providing Larry (Billy Crystal) will do his part, too.
