Mad Dog and Glory [DVD] [1993]

John McNaughton's underrated comedy Mad Dog and Glory comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The disc does a solid job of capturing Robert Müller's cinematography. English, French, and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English and French subtitles are accessible. There are no supplemental materials of any consequence. Mad Dog and Glory, which had fallen out of print, features unusual turns from each member of its impressive cast, as well as a typically excellent script from Richard Price, making this disc worthwhile even without a wealth of extras.

Synopsis

Mad Dog and Glory
John McNaughton directed this Richard Price-scripted comedy about a cop who learns to love an unwanted gift from a gangster. Robert De Niro plays Wayne Dobie, a shy and reclusive Chicago cop who has never fired a gun. Dobie is an evidence technician who takes photographs at crime scenes, earning the moniker of "Mad Dog" for his diffident attitude. One day Dobie walks in on a convenience store holdup and saves the life of Chicago mob boss Frank Milo (Bill Murray). Frank is impressed by the way Dobie handled the holdup and wants to pay him back for saving his life. In thrall to Frank is Glory (Uma Thurman), who is working off her brother's gambling debts by living with the mobster. One day, Glory turns up at Dobie's house, explaining that Frank is giving her to him for one week as a gift. Initially Dobie wants nothing to do with Glory, but as the week goes on, he realizes he is becoming intensely attracted to her. ~ Paul Brenner, Rovi
