Drowning Mona

Absurd and dumb mystery/comedy about small town Verplanck, New York (where everyone drives a Yugo) and a strange murder happens. Mona Dearly, the town's worst nightmare drives off a cliff. Most of the town's police force thinks that it was an accident, but one policeman, played by Danny DeVito, insists on pursuing an investigation. The jokes of this film are completely mindless and very rude. The film is very tedious and stupid; who knows how they got this ultra-talented cast to star in something like this. The camera work and the script are very amateurish. Leave this one alone; it's lame.
