HASH(0x976570f0) étoiles sur 5 Pure fun 12 août 2005
Par Jerry Saperstein - Publié sur
Format: DVD
Do not watch "Drowning Mona" if you're expecting something as deep as an Ingmar Bergman flick. On the other hand, if you enjoy outrageously black comedy, sit back, turn up the volume a little higher than usual to catch some of the very witty one-liners and enjoy.

Bette Midler is a nightmare come true. A small-town shrew whom everyone hates. Thus it takes only a few scenes to set up the cheering section as she gets into her son's car, roars off down the road, hits the brakes to slow for a turn . . . and plunges over a cliff when the brakes fail. Not only does no one care about Mona's fate, but one of Police Chief Danny DeVito's cops says to forget about it when DeVito suggests an investigation.

The probable suspect is none other than Affleck, who is to become DeVito's son-in-law within a matter of days.

The movie now becomes Agatha Christie on steroids or worse as DeVito tries to find out who sabotaged Midler's brakes. No one is unhappy that Midler is gone. Not her son, not her husband, not her husband's lover, the town eccentric or anyone else. Mona was not well liked. Of course, just about everyone is a suspect.

Sure, the plot has as much thickness as a shirtboard. But the writing is witty and bright and the acting by DeVito, Midler, Jamie Lee Curtis, Affleck and everyone else is top-notch.

Pure and simple, this is a fun movie, a black comedy that never takes itself seriously, but is well directed and well measured. As one movie studio used to say "that's entertainment" and "Drowning Mona" most definitely is entertaining.

I'm still laughing! Bette Midler is great as the bitchy Mona who drives everyone crazy, and due to the tampering on the breaks of a Yugo, finally drives herself into a river. A hilarious who-done-it with so many great parts, it's hard to think of which scene inspired more laughs. The choice of car (Yugo) was wonderful because many of my generation's movie viewers will find it funny that Mona got the engine started in the first place! This was a grand choice of 'graduation presents' purchased by parents, and those of us stuck with them knew that 'You go nowhere in a Yugo'... You know the town is off their rockers when most of the characters are driving this type of vehicle from h---- around.

HASH(0x97653180) étoiles sur 5 Great acting and a near perfect story 29 mai 2003

It will go without saying five minutes into this movie that it is unlike any other movie you've seen. This sometimes dark, sometimes slapstick, sometimes subtle comedy boasts one of the most intriguing casts to date. There are a number of recognizable faces, Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Jamie Lee Curtis (to name a few), that brighten up the screen just that much. But to be honest, it was the roles played by Casey Affleck, Marcus Thomas, and William Fichtner especially that made `Drowning Mona' so enjoyable for me. The movie itself goes back and forth between present time and flashbacks containing moments of a living Mona Dearly, who dies rather abruptly at the very beginning of the film. I think too many people say the plot it predictable. I was more than entertained for the entire movie and I never actually KNEW who actually killed Mona. Sure I had my predictions, and who doesn't. The point is that the movie's very funny and actually quite smart.
Once we see Mona Dearly fly over a cliff in a car, the sense of craziness sets in. Your basic human instincts will at first allow you to feel bad for Mona (I hope). But once you see every person in town partying and laughing over her "timely" death, you can't help but play along. The part where Jeff, Mona's son played by Marcus Thomas, asks the police why Mona was driving his car while popping open a beer is absolutely priceless! The main characters in the film are Bobby Calzone (Casey Affleck) and Chief Rash (DeVito). Chief Rash is the only person in town who cares about Mona's death. Well, maybe it's more that it's his job than he really cares. Heck, even his co-workers could care less. Bobby also (kind of) feels sorry for Mona, but is allowed to laugh and enjoy the situation thanks to his fiancé Ellen (Neve Campbell). So for most of the movie, Rash just drives around in his Geo--take note of the opening disclaimer--and asks townies questions about what kind of person Mona truly was. The responses are all hilarious. I could go into great detail with almost 50 different quotes or scenes that back up the fact that Mona Dearly was a horrible person who deserved to die. But I just don't have the time. You really have to hear/see them to believe it. As I hinted to, William Fichtner's performance as Phil Dearly is hands down the best. He plays the ill-fated-but-happily-sorrowing-over-the-worst-person-he'd-ever-met husband. He is a very suspicious character, and seems to know something that no one else does. He puts the blame on Bobby Calzone, who is one of the most harmless people you could ever meet. What makes this particularly interesting is that Bobby is the future son-in-law of Chief Rash. So that is very hard for Rash, and us, the viewer, to believe. `Drowning Mona' is pretty much a "whodunit" movie with a twist that makes you laugh and think at the same time. I guess I can't rebuff the fact that the storyline becomes predictable over time. And that's the only reason I didn't give it 5 stars. But you'll still be impressed with the shifts between past and present and definitely the comedy. There's also an excellent cameo from former SNL star Will Ferrell. I won't spoil the rest.
If you enjoy Danny DeVito's work and/or a good comedy with bizarre twists, then you will love `Drowning Mona'. The acting by everyone is unquestionably flawless; and the only thing that doesn't excite is its ill-timed predictability. Once more, take special note of William Fichtner and Marcus Thomas. Being that they are the "family members" makes it just that much funnier. There's really no other movies available that are comparable to this one. And that's certainly a good thing for some. But if you dwell in straightforwardness and don't appreciate the idea of thinking, you might not enjoy this one. It's crazy, it's hilarious, it's silly, it's well thought-out, but most importantly it's time well spent. I highly recommend this to anyone who'd enjoy an innovative comedy or likes any of the actors or actresses in the cast list. Don't overlook this one.

HASH(0x9764ea98) étoiles sur 5 One of my all-time favorite dark comedies! 1 août 2006
Par SuperJenn - Publié sur
Format: DVD
If you're the sort that dislikes dark comedies or just don't see the humor in them, then stay away. You're not meant for this amazing gem of satire, but for those of you like me, who appreciate what makes things different in life, you people will understand. Regardless of Yugos and Wheel of Fortune references, there is much to love about Drowning Mona. Mona (played fabulously by Bette Midler, and trust me, watching this movie is worth it for her performance alone) is a mean, horrible woman that the whole small town she lives in hates for varying reasons (and you'll see them, all incredibly funny). She takes a drive one day only to run off the road, straight off a cliff and right into her death. But her husband Phil (William Fichtner) and her son Jeff don't seem all that bothered by her death. Nor does anyone else in the town. In fact, everyone's elated that she's gone. But the police chief (Danny Devito) is determined to get to the bottom of this mystery no matter what. Drowning Mona also features great performances from Neve Campbell, Casey Affleck and Jamie Lee Curtis. Drowning Mona is at the top of my list of favorite movies. It is not for everyone though, so if you're one of those people who need shiny-happy-Hollywood to consider it a good movie, you've been warned. For those of you with a thirst for dark comedies, don't miss Drowning Mona. You'll want to watch it again and again. Absolutely positively without a doubt recommended!

I first caught this movie when it was running on a movie channel on TV. I went out and bought it the next day -- I've never done that before.
This has to be one of the most hilarious and entertaining movies I own. No one could have played Mona better than Bette Middler, and the acting of William Fitchner and Danny DeVito make the movie... not to mention the vulnerable Bobby played by Casey Affleck whose blond wig is priceless.
The yugo gag, the way these backwards-arsed country folk are portrayed as well as the fine choice of music such as "In the Summertime" by Mungo Jerry, and the bit played during Ellie's panic make this movie one that I'm prod to show friends I have over.
If you like to laugh and giggle, give Drowning Mona a spin.
