Cinema Cycle - Throw Momma From The Train

(Cardio Workout And Reviewing Movies At The Same Time)

 Throw Momma From The Train

SYNOPSIS: A misinterpretation of a concept from a teacher to a student has unexpected consequences. 

CONCEPT IN RELATION TO THE VIEWER: After more than one viewing, the film is only worth watching for Momma.  Gawd, she is hilarious. 

PROS AND CONS: There are times when this film is really engaging and fun to watch, and then there are scenes that just go off the rails and you lose interest.  

It goes off the rails, probably because of the script, since the directing by DeVito is actually pretty good, and both he and Crystal know how to act these roles.  

But it is Anne Ramsey as momma that you just can't get enough of.  She is the Nurse Ratchet of the dysfunctional parent set.  

This film is a part of my LaserDisc Collection.

Clicking on the title will take you to the Internet Movie Database (IMDB) entry for this film.

This film was viewed while exercising on my recumbent cycle. A summary of my time spent working out on my journey through movie-land can be found on
