Movie Info

This satire on mafia pictures tells the story of the Calzones, a mob family having some troubles (including a serious lack of smarts). Guiseppe Calzone, aka "The Guppy," has taken over the family business after his older brother dies, but his aging father realizes he's not the right man for the position. Dad ships Guiseppe off to Mafia University, but leaders of other crime families see this as an opportunity to move in, and soon an all-out war breaks out. The Godson stars Rodney Dangerfield, Dom DeLuise, Kevin McDonald, and Lou Ferrigno.more

Dangerfield and DeLuise are two of my favorite funnymen, but this is so bad I turned it off halfway through.

Audience Reviews for The Godson

Everyone's two favorite fattys Rodney Dangerfield and Dom DeLuise star in this comedy mocking mafia films. As good as Mafia!.


I love Kevin McDonald, but this film is TERRIBLE!!! Rent "Jane Austin's Mafia" instead. As terrible as that is it is better than this.

Robert Iwataki

If you haven't seen this. It is hilarious. It's definitely one of the best spoof films I've ever seen. Worth looking into.
