quirky romance

Wayne 'Mad Dog' Dobie (Robert De Niro) is a lonely crime scene investigator with his partner Mike (David Caruso). He likes his neighbor Lee (Kathy Baker) but she is abused by her police boyfriend. One night, he rescues Frank 'The Money Store' Milo (Bill Murray) from being held hostage in a convenience store robbery. Frank turns out to be a mob boss and sends barmaid Glory (Uma Thurman) to be his companion for a week. Frank also sends Harold (Mike Starr) to watch over them.

Bill Murray and Robert De Niro are switching roles in this. It's a bit quirky to have Murray as the mob boss while De Niro is the romantic lead. This is a lot light quirky but no big laughs. Uma Thurman is endearing. The relationship is charming. It has some darker tones but it never gets too dark. It's an odd rom-com but it does work on a certain level.

Surprising Turns From De Niro And Murry

Mad Dog and Glory is a comedy/drama that features Robert De Niro, Uma Thurman and Bill Murray.This film directed by John McNaughton is about Wayne Dobie,a meek Chicago Police photographer that saves the life of an organized crime kingpin.He saved the life of an organized crime mob boss in Frank Milo,who shows his gratitude by allowing a beautiful employee named Glory to work with Wayne for one week.An unusual romance develops between them and things become complicated when the Frank demanded her return.

Despite the uneveness of the film in tone and its constant transition from being heavy to being lighthearted ,it was surprising to see De Niro and Murray in surprising turns as a meek fellow and a violent tempered gangster respectively.Their performances was one reason to see this film.Aside from that,it also provides a lot of delight and entertainment to the viewer.

Solid Crime Comedy

After his life is saved by a lonely cop, a mobster who moonlights as a stand-up comedian provides the cop with a beautiful young companion.

I love that the mobster hails from Melrose Park, which I would call the most corrupt of all the Chicago suburbs. One also has to notice the mobster in therapy, which sort of anticipates "The Sopranos". And, of course, a dynamic performance from McNaughton regular Tom Towles.

Roger Ebert gave the film 3.5 out of 4 stars, saying, "The movie is very funny, but it's not broad humor, it's humor born of personality quirks and the style of the performances." He went on to add that the film is "the kind of movie I like to see more than once. The people who made it must have come to know the characters very well, because although they seem to fit into broad outlines, they are real individuals -- quirky, bothered, worried, bemused." He probably gave the film higher honors than anyone else, as many seem to find it just so-so or even boring.
