Used People

Genre: Comedy; Starring: Shirley MacLaine, Marcello Mastroianni, Kathy Bates, Marcia Gay Harden, Doris Roberts; Director: Beeban Kidron; Status: In Season; MPAA Rating: PG-13

Everything’s in italics in this Jewish Moonstruck set in 1960s Queens. MacLaine honks nasally and wears dowdy schmattes as a cynical widow; Mastroianni talks in spumoni aphorisms as the Italian gent who woos her; the score oompahs with grating merriment as characters parade cutesy tics instead of human traits. With stars as gifted as Jessica Tandy, Sylvia Sidney, and Kathy Bates drowning in the tough-talking treacle, Used People one of those movies that gives New York a worse name than it already has.
