Rated PG-13 · 104 minutes · 1992

Comedy, Fantasy, Horror
Working with the two writers responsible for Apartment Zero (Martin Donovan and David Koepp), two of the best screen comediennes around (Meryl Streep and Goldie Hawn), Bruce Willis under pounds of makeup, and Isabella Rossellini in the raw, Robert Zemeckis sustains both the nastiness of Used Cars and the animated cartoon aesthetics of Who Framed Roger Rabbit in a violent and macabre farce (1992) about female vanity and aging, featuring the mutilation of women's bodies as its chief source of amusement. If there were something resembling genuine satire of human behavior beyond the simple pretexts for fancy special effects and relentless sadism, I might have found some of this funny.
