Joey and Rosalie are in the car, with mama Nadja outside trying to persuade Rosalie to get out of the car because it is about to blow up. As Rosalie understands and tries to shield her head there is a piece of cake/bread in her right hand. However, as the shot returns to her, it is in her mouth. See more »
Clever writing, able direction and a stellar cast make this film a modern classic that stands up to multiple viewings. Tracey Ullman and Joan Plowright star as Rosalie Boca and her mother Nadja, both so furious at the infidelity of Rosalie's husband Joey (Kevin Kline) that they decide to kill him. The ensuing misadventures are VERY funny, particularly the attempts by hired hit-men Harlan and Marlon James, not-too-bright cousins played by William Hurt and Keanu Reeves.
