Michelle Pfeiffer is hilarious in this terrific comedy as a mafia wife who decides to get far away from her husband’s mob connections after he is bumped off by a heartless boss (Dean Stockwell). Stockwell isn’t happy about her attempts to distance herself, deciding to keep a close eye on her instead, which then gives the Feds the idea that she is his new mistress, which then prompts federal agent  to also keep a close eye on her life.  Mercedes Ruehl has a delicious supporting role as Stockwell’s practically insane wife (her role laid down the groundwork for Lorraine Bracco in GoodFellas for sure).
