Los Angeles Times - Sheila Benson
To say the film is the treasure of the year would be to bad-mouth it in this disastrous season. Prizzi's Honor would be the vastly original centerpiece of a great year. It's a rich, dense character comedy in which Huston, working from a screenplay Richard Condon and Janet Roach adapted from Condon's novel, cocks a playful but unblinking eye at love, family loyalty and the togetherness of a happy marriage--Sicilian style.
The Guardian - Unnamed
Probably the funniest mobster movie ever...A sublime meld of black satire, high camp and happy farce.
Chicago Tribune - Gene Siskel
This film would be a winner any time of the year. It`s a classic piece of moviemaking that I plan on seeing again very soon.
TV Guide Magazine - Unnamed
This was the penultimate film from the ailing great director. It is also one of his best.
Chicago Sun-Times - Roger Ebert
This is the most bizarre comedy in many a month, a movie so dark, so cynical and so funny that perhaps only Jack Nicholson and Kathleen Turner could have kept straight faces during the love scenes. They do.

Prizzi’s Honor (1985)

A professional hit man and hit woman fall in love, only to discover that they have each been hired to kill the other.
