Mary Spinell


Oh man. I LOVED Mary Spinell in this. Her performance as the mother has to be literally some of the worst acting in film history. I was laughing so hard any time she did anything. Her voice, her thick NY accent, and her general I-don't-know-where-I-am demeanor makes her on of the most enjoyable film characters ever.

AND she was nominated for a Science Fiction Academy award??? Seriously! Did the nominators see the same film I watched?? This all makes me smile broadly and brightly!

You're insane. She deserved an Oscar!

I thought she was hilarious as the overbearing mom.

What do you think this is, a signature? It's a way of life!

reply

Well, you can't really accuse her of being a bad actress, because like Joe, she's the real deal!

I also thought it was a nice touch - Joe probably wanted nobody but his real mum to play the part, and it was probably a personally nice special touch for them to be in a film together.

She was one of the few good things about the film.
