Ruthless People is a 1986 black comedy film starring Danny DeVito, Bette Midler, Judge Reinhold and Helen Slater. It also features Bill Pullman as a supporting role in his film debut.
Millionaire Sam Stone (DeVito) tells his mistress, Carol (Anita Morris), that he intends to murder his wife, Barbara (Midler). Sam is greedy and grasping. He only married his wife for her money but her father (also his boss) took a long time dying. Sam thus built up a small fortune of his own but Barbara is the heiress to a much larger one. Furthermore he hates her choice in clothes and "modern" furniture.
However, when Sam arrives home he finds the house empty. In frustration he tosses away the bottle of chloroform he intended to use to put Barbara to sleep before killing her. He then receives a phone call from an anonymous man announcing that Barbara has been kidnapped and that Sam must pay a large ransom or else she will be killed. She will also be killed if he informs the cops or the media. Before long, the house is swarming with police looking for clues to the kidnapping which is now headline news!
