...A pleasurably offbeat picture that manages the rare trick of being both charming and edgy....[The] film has the look of having been handcrafted to perfection...

Rating: 2/4 -- The tone is uneven, with the dark moments lacking a tanglible sense of danger and the uplifting scenes missing a much-needed lightheartedness. Full Review

De Niro seems committed to the part of the sensitive loner, while Murray all but succeeds in mixing smooth and sinister, heartfelt and hot-tempered. Full Review

...A light-spirited urban fairy tale....Its atmosphere is one of moonstruck romanticism....De Niro is poky, bashful, quietly sympathetic...

Rating: 8/10 -- Tonally, it's not the film that got Scorsese's attention, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, but set alongside any of McNaughton's pictures, [all] are formally of a piece: rhythmic, economical and quietly urgent. Full Review

These are all talented people, but on this project they seem oddly divided, within themselves as well as from each other. Full Review

An almost unconscionably enjoyable movie that plays like something conceived by a contemporary, furiously hip Damon Runyon.

Product Description:

MAD DOG AND GLORY is a hilarious take on a bizarre love triangle between three vastly contrasting individuals. Robert De Niro stars as Wayne "Mad Dog" Dobie, a cop who wants desperately to be an artist. After interrupting a holdup and saving the life of mobster Frank Milo (Bill Murray), his life takes a dramatic turn. Milo, a gangster with the desire (if not the talent) to become a stand-up comic, rewards Wayne by lending him his girlfriend, Glory (Uma Thurman), for one week, a week in which Mad Dog, initially repulsed by the idea of Milo's gift, gradually begins to fall in love with Glory.

The amusing running theme of characters wishing to be something they're not is bolstered throughout by strong stereotype-shattering performances by the two male leads. The ironic casting of longtime goofball Murray as a gangster and De Niro (fresh off his prototypical 1991 role as a vengeful ex-convict in CAPE FEAR) as a timid cop is both thought-provoking and hilarious. Director John McNaughton, known for the inimitable mixture of gory violence and grim humor in films such as HENRY PORTRAIT OF A SERIAL KILLER and THE BORROWER, also plays against type, using a lighter touch in MAD DOG AND GLORY to great effect. The result is a jubilant, cockeyed romp that grapples with the ancient riddles of fate and destiny.

Plot Synopsis:

Wayne, the timorous artist-cop mockingly dubbed Mad Dog by fellow officers, happens by a bodega where he intercepts a holdup and saves mobster Frank Milo from catching a bullet. Milo, a gangster with a comedic side, shows his appreciation by giving his girlfriend, Glory, to Wayne for one week. She's a wistfully beautiful young woman who'd rather not be the prize in this strange payback.
