A few quality laughs from a black comedy inspired by Hitchcock's Strangers On A Train. Anne Ramsey is hilariously monstrous as Devito's momma!

Unapologetically lifting it's main plot device from Hitchcock's 'Strangers on a Train', 'Throw Momma from the Train' adds a fun comic spin to the idea. A fair amount of jokes were unexpected. The very end wraps up too 'nice', but the rest is enjoyable.
