In this farcical spoof of 1930s gangster movies, a crime boss (Sylvester Stallone in a rare comic turn) does his best to reform. Unfortunately, to do so, he must overcome a variety of personal and professional obstacles.

When you're looking to remake French cinema, the name 'Stallone' leaps immediately to mind. As in, 'for God's sake, don't cast Sylvester Stallone!'

Bad idea badly executed.

This is why Stallone gave up on comedy.

Juicy Cerebellum

Only occasionally flirts with the breathless lunacy of well-conceived farce - and there are huge, painful gaps in between the few worthwhile gags.

The charm of this film lay in the talents of the supporting characters.

People tend to run this down, for good reason, but I always found it kind of charming - even if it isn't perfect.
