A Pyromaniac’s Love Story (1995)


By Scott Goldfine

John Leguizamo (Fox’s “House of Buggin’”) stars as a lovesick bakery boy whose world is turned upside down after his workplace is burned down in the inspired comedy “A Pyromaniac’s Love Story.” Matters then get complicated when Leguizamo accepts a bribe to take the rap for the arsonist, a lovelorn nut played by William Baldwin.

Witty, hilarious and unpredictable, this is one of the year’s best. Also stars Michael Lerner, Joan Plowright and Armin Mueller-Stahl. Rated PG.
