The cast in this movie was dynamite. DeVito and Midler reunited from the priceless "Ruthless People". And when they killed her off in the opening scene, you just knew she'd be prominently featured in plenty of flashback scenes, which see was, playing a hilariously vicious, attacking schrew.
DeVito played the straight man oddly enough, and was probably the best actor in the film.
The ensemble cast is rounded out by Jamie Lee Curtis (the floozy watress), a very young Casey Affleck (nice kid but a prime suspect), William Fitchner (Mona's cheating sap for a husband), Marcus Thomas (Mona's moronic son), Tracy Walker (the omnipresent drifter), and even Will Farrell (the creepy, pervy undertaker), and several more very recognizable faces.
The story centers on the assumption by many in the town, that Midler's (Mona's) death was no accident. She was well-hated by most, and for good reason. Was her death simply an accident as first thought? Or was it a homicide? And if so, who did it?
Good movie. Quirky plot.
