      Drowning Mona with Neve Campbell, Casey Affleck, Bette Midler, Danny DeVito, Will Ferrell, and Jamie Lee Curtis. This movie is a perfect example of dry humor.

      Danny DeVito delivers his cynical lines in his trademark manner.

      Curtis is her usual sexy self as the waitress had by all in a small town.

      Bette Midler,

      though only shown in flashbacks, is her usual bitchy self and a perfect choice for the role of Mona.

      It seems that everyone had a motive to murder this crone and the movie is a perfect who done it with many possible culprits.

      Mona is found drowned in her car, which crashed into the river due to sabotaged brake lines.

      Police Chief DeVito meticulously searches for the killer.

      Still, the movie is much more than a simple detective type film.

      The quirky characters are humorous and there are many sub plots and twists.

      There is plenty of humor throughout the movie.

      One fine example is: My mom told ...

      • Drowning Mona
      me if you have a load of potatoes, make potato salad and Mona asks, What if you have a pile of shit? and her husband blandly replies Make shit salad.

      There are bizarre scenes of a dufus chasing a dog with a lawn mower, examples of how to amputate your own hand by

      accident or plain stupidity, and playing Wheel Of Fortune as part of sexual acts.

      The is very unexpected and this is the type of movie that can be viewed several times with different ideas from the audience each time.

      The all star cast was well chosen and the use of flash backs helped keep the complex movie easy to follow.
