Angela DeMarco wants out—out from the mob family she’s married into, and she gets her chance when her husband is wacked. But just when she thinks she is out, something pulls her back in, a crime boss who is infatuated with her, played by Oscar-nominated Dean Stockwell. She’s pursued by him, but also by a righteous FBI agent played by Matthew Modine creating a comic yet menacing romantic triangle.

The score is supplied by David Byrne, fresh off Demme’s Talking Head doc, “Stop Making Sense.” There are so many BAD gangster comedies, but not this one it’s “Godfather kitsch… Hold on to your kneecaps—it’s a Cosa Nostra ‘Moonstruck.’” (Rita Kemply in “The Washington Post.”)
