THE COMEDY YOU CAN’T REFUSE.
Mob boss Vincenzo Cortino (Lloyd Bridges) has two sons, the psychopathic Joey (Billy Burke) and the enterprising Anthony (Jay Mohr), and they are both drawn into the family business… Jim Abrahams returns with another zany comedy in the vein of his Hot Shots! flicks and Bridges, in one of his last roles, does the same senile type of character. Borrowing the flashback narrative from The Godfather, Part II (1974), the movie also targets Casino in particular, but the jokes are poor and the cast struggles.
1998-U.S. 84 min. Color. Directed by Jim Abrahams. Cast: Jay Mohr (Anthony Cortino), Billy Burke (Joey Cortino), Christina Applegate (Diane Steen), Lloyd Bridges (Vincenzo Cortino), Pamela Gidley, Olympia Dukakis.
