The performances, however, are very enjoyable, with first honors going to Chazz Palminteri and Dianne Wiest.

A backstage comedy bolstered by healthy shots of prohibition gangster melodrama and romantic entanglements.

Essentially a backstage comedy about artists and gangsters in 1920s New York, the film doesn't break any new ground but it's pleasantly amusing and benefits from charming turns from Diane Wiest as the grand dame and John Cusack as the young artist.
