Ruthless People (1986) Published 16th October, 2021 in Thoughts & Spoilers on A Place For My Head. Tagged Thoughts & Spoilers: Films. Film: Ruthless People Vintage: 1986 Finished watching: 17th July, 2021 WarningMight contain spoilers. So-so. Crass, with dated sensibilities and dated humour. I was shocked by the lack of depth to Bette Midler’s character. Having said all that, it’s a reasonably funny film, and gets better as it goes on, with a good climax. Judge Reinhold is enjoyable odd in his role.
