Throw Momma from the Train (1987) REVIEW
Larry Donner (Billy Crystal) has a crazy life: His wife (Kate Mulgrew) stole his book and left him, he has a new budding romance with a girl named Beth (Kim Greist), he doesn’t know how to start his book, and his students of his screen writing class are stranger than most. However, one student (Danny DeVito) is extra strange. He lives with his evil Momma (Anne Ramsey) and he can’t get up the courage to kill her. So than he goes to Larry for help, making his life go from normal crazy, to extra crazy! Stu Silver should have done more! The dialog, the characters, the whole script is near perfect! And Danny DeVito has proved to me he’s more than a great actor: he’s a great director! His kid’s movie Matilda is among my favorite family movies and now this is one of my favorite comedies.It’s a black comedy, most jokes are about murder, but it’s damn funny! All of the actors are doing their full potential, whether they’re main characters (Billy Crystal) or just one-bit minor characters (Olivia Brown).If you like comedy (Who doesn’t?) than you’ll like this! 8/10 stars.
Throw Momma from the Train (1987) PLOT STORY
Larry Donner is an author and writing professor who tutors people that want to write books. Larry’s life has become a misery when his ex-wife Margaret has published a book he wrote under her name and has gotten rich over it. Owen Lift, one of Larry’s students, offers Larry to kill Margaret, and in return Owen, wants Larry to kill his horrible mother. Larry thinks it’s a joke, until he learns Owen killed his ex-wife. And Larry has now become the prime suspect.
Two men have someone they would dearly love dead; one his ex-wife who is making his life miserable, the other, his domineering, nasty mother. What could be simpler than exchanging murders to avoid any possible complicity. Momma turns out to be a hard nut to crack, not to mention the guilt.
Larry Donner, a college teacher, has been having difficulties writing since his former wife, Margaret, ruined him by stealing his novel which consequently became a best-seller. He does not hide his hatred for Margaret, upsetting his girlfriend Beth Ryan, who is an anthropologist teacher in the same college. While teaching Creative Writing classes, he is stalked by a student, Owen, who wants to know his opinion about his crime tale. Larry tells him that he did not like it, and explains that in every mystery tale, the murderer should eliminate the motive and establish an alibi, otherwise he would get caught. Furthermore, Larry suggests that Owen watch Hitchcock’s movies to understand the structure of a suspenseful story. Owen, who wants to kill his detestable mother, watches “Strangers on a Train” and misunderstands Larry’s advice, believing that his teacher wants to swap murders to eliminate the motive. Owen travels to Hawaii and while in a ship, Margaret falls overboard vanishing in the sea and is considered dead. However, Larry does not have an alibi and becomes the prime suspect, while the deranged Owen presses him to kill his mother as part of their supposed deal.
