Address Comments To:
UNDERCOVER BLUES is an enjoyable suspense comedy with fast pace and timing. The acting by Turner and Quaid is competent as well. Turner, in particular, has much riding on this film since her recent films have not done that well, and Quaid could use a hit, too. Stanley Tucci's character, Muerte, meaning "death," is hilarious and provides a running comedic thread through the movie as over and over again, his attacks on Blue fall to the ground. Fiona Shaw's melodramatic Paulina Novacek also contributes to the movie's comedic impact with the violence being primarily slapstick and not that offensive. UNDERCOVER BLUES underlines the fact that a good comedy can be fun.
