Loathesome millionaire Sam Stone (Danny DeVito) is ruthless. How ruthless? When his shrill wife Barbara (Bette Midler) is nabbed by inept kidnappers (Judge Reinhold, Helen Slater), Sam cries tears of joy ... and refuses to pay the ransom. And when the abductors threaten to kill the abrasive heiress, Sam takes immediate action -- he celebrates!

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Though ''Ruthless People'' has few moments to equal the inspired lunacies of ''Airplane!'' it's a true farce -- uniformly, cheerily nasty...
Fresh: Ruthless People is a hilariously venal comedy about a kidnapped harridan whose rich husband won't pay for her return.
Fresh: The characters here aren't just bad; most of them are truly vile -- human slime. And the film makers chew them up (especially two nefarious bonbons played by Danny DeVito and Bette Midler) with the toothsome glee of jolly cannibals.
Fresh: Ruthless People contains some of the biggest laughs of 1986.
This is one my favorite movies.
I would love to purchase this!
Also, please add Down and Out in Beverly Hills to the iTunes catalog.
FINALLY! Thank you iTunes! This movie is fantastic!
