"GoodFellas" is just one of the movies that did this all much better before.
Packing the screen with wiseguy-story regulars - like Vincent Pastore and a limp Tony Darrow, perhaps distracted by his recent legal difficulties - is fruitless when your movie is as pathetically inept as this one.
Cathy Moriarty and other Scorsese alums pop up, but these mean streets feel too derivative to thrill.

Solid performances can't save the film from its banal, convoluted screenplay that leaves no room for interpretation or subtlety.
