Prizzi's Honor Soundtrack

 

Prizzi's Honor (1985), a romantic comedy/drama, starred Kathleen Turner as Irene Walker, Jack Nicholson as Charley Partanna, and Anjelica Huston as Maerose Prizzi.  The movie scored well with critics.  It was nominated for a number of Academy Awards, with Angelica Huston actually winning for Best Supporting Actress.  The film was a financial success at the box office.

In this movie, Nicholson plays the role of a rather inept mafia-hired hit man named Charley Partanna, who works for the Prizzi crime family.  At a family wedding, Charley falls for a female hit woman, played by Turner (Irene Walker).  The fact that Irene is married is not an issue, as a contract was put out on her husbandís life for robbing a casino, and Charley does the honors.  Irene and Charley begin a quirky romance, and they eventually get married.  There is a problem, however.  The mafia Don's granddaughter, Maerose Prizzi (Angelica Houston), feels jilted by Charley because she is still in love with him, and she sets out to set the record straight.

Turns out that the mob is onto the fact that Irene did not return all the casino money her husband stole, and Maerose, in order to get back into the good graces of her father and grandfather, plans to prove it.  Different members of the Prizzi family put out hit orders, Charley to kill Irene, and Irene to kill Charley.  In the end, it is Charley that gets the upper hand against his wife, but in his grief, Maerose is there to console him.
