  • Critic Reviews of "Ruthless People"

    Los Angeles Times
    July 31, 2013

    The characters here aren't just bad; most of them are truly vile -- human slime. And the film makers chew them up (especially two nefarious bonbons played by Danny DeVito and Bette Midler) with the toothsome glee of jolly cannibals.

    Orlando Sentinel
    July 31, 2013

    Much of the fun of this comedy is in watching what happens as virtually everyone in the movie tries to double-cross or otherwise take advantage of everyone else.

    Philadelphia Inquirer
    July 31, 2013

    An undemanding but well-executed entertainment.

    Chicago Tribune
    July 31, 2013

    Ruthless People contains some of the biggest laughs of 1986.

    Chicago Reader
    July 31, 2013

    It's a rare kind of craftsmanship, and it produces a rare kind of pleasure.

    March 26, 2009

    Ruthless People is a hilariously venal comedy about a kidnapped harridan whose rich husband won't pay for her return.
    November 25, 2015

    A great deal of bizarre circumstances occur in this very effective farce, and for any mind that is easily won over by the insistence of shocking humor, it continues to hold a bewildering power to inspire shock, awe and some unforgettable chuckles.

    Radio Times
    August 11, 2014

    DeVito and Midler are superb in their roles as the greedy philanderer and his screaming, overbearing other half.

    South Florida Sun-Sentinel
    July 31, 2013

    Occasionally crude and tasteless, Ruthless People is a comedy with a vitriolic twist. It`s a comedy about people who love to hate, with actors who make it worth seeing.

    TV Guide
    July 31, 2013

    Call it rude, crude, and lewd, but you also have to call it very funny.

    Philadelphia Daily News
    July 31, 2013

    The people who made Ruthless People probably expect us to laugh... at the pushy people who populate their story. And they're right: We will laugh -- not because we have lousy taste (and wicked thoughts) ourselves, but because their film is genuinely funny.

    People Magazine
    July 31, 2013

    At its considerable best, Ruthless People is a riotous anomaly: a very good farce about very bad taste.
