“ For those that recall those lines, you also know how entertaining this film was.
“ Very entertaining and Devito's MOTHER!!!
“All in all, its a very fun movie, with a slow start, and a fond nod to Hitchcock, with a surprisingly schmaltz free ending.
“ And i have to admit i enjoyed it quite a lot.
“As director though, De Vito's control is inconsistent as he wastes this clever idea, while his film lurches from the very humorous to the very bland.
“ 'Throw Momma From The Train' is gripping tale of 2 writers, both who hate their loved ones.
“ The comedy is so unpredictable and twisted just enough to make us laugh out loud many times throughout.
“ Further, Larry suggests Owen to watch Hitchcock's movies to understand the structure of a suspenseful story.
“ I also thought the ending was incredibly stupid and predictable.
“I admit that sometimes the plot does seem a tad contrived—especially the train ride.
“ A lighter reworking of Alfred Hitchcock's suspense classic, Strangers on a Train, Throw Momma from the Train with Billy Crystal and Danny DeVito is a black comedy that's all fun and entertaining though terribly morbid.
“ It is, regardless, an enjoyable movie.
“ The ending is mixed; the business on the train anti-climactic and a little sugary finally, the pop-up book part lovely and the final would-be wisecracking over a sea foreground is a predictable attempt at the feelgood.
“In the end, though, "Throw Momma From The Train" is an entertaining, original movie with some very funny scenes.
“ this movie has funny sequences by Devito and Crystal,and crystal's literature class, but the other characters in the film, to be a bore .
“ I felt that this movie contained cliché after cliché.
“ Not something I'd actively seek out to watch again, but it was semi- enjoyable nonetheless.
“I really really enjoyed it, i even stayed up till early morning to finish watching it on late night t.
“Despite being dark around the edges,it really is an entertaining film.
“ This scene goes on way too long.
