Ruthless People

Murder plots, inept kidnappers, fortune hunters and the "dumbest person in the world" are the stuff that drive this uproarious black comedy about a greedy businessman (Danny DeVito) who doesn't want his kidnapped wife (Bette Midler) returned to him alive. Judge Reinhold costars in this wacky blockbuster hit.
