Critic Reviews of "Throw Momma from the Train"Variety Staff VarietyMarch 26, 2009
Very clever and engaging from beginning to end, pic builds on the notion that nearly everyone - at least once in life - has the desire to snuff out a relative or nemesis, even if 99.9% of us let the urge pass without ever acting on it.Geoff Andrew Time OutJune 24, 2006
If it all gets a little soft-centred towards the end, there's more than enough vitality and invention to be going on with.Janet Maslin New York TimesMay 20, 2003
Mr. Crystal and Mr. DeVito ... make one of the oddest pairs imaginable but have a rapport that's a delight.Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
"Throw Momma from the Train" is a series of missed opportunities and unexploited situations, a movie that wants to have genuine nastiness at its heart but never quite works up the energy or the nerve to be truly heartless.Desson Thomson Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
You can feel how much fun it was for DeVito to direct this. But the movie's one-note broadness seems suited more to cable.Rita Kempley Washington PostJanuary 01, 2000
Better yet, just throw the whole thing in front of a subway and hope it gets dragged a couple of miles.Cathy BurkeNovember 08, 2016
Danny DeVito directs and stars in this funny, offbeat homage to Alfred Hitchcock thrillers, but it's co-star Billy Crystal who brings all the elements togetherDennis Schwartz Ozus' World Movie ReviewsJanuary 11, 2016
So-so diverting one-note black comedy.David Nusair Reel Film ReviewsFebruary 27, 2015
...a fairly forgettable piece of work that could (and should) have been so much better...Brian Costello Common Sense MediaSeptember 13, 2012
Dark '80s comedy with slapstick and sexual content.Rich Cline Shadows on the WallApril 29, 2005

Funny film that sort of play-acts being a black comedy
