The old-fashioned story is aided by surprisingly smooth direction, as well as likable performances from Davi himself, Chazz Palmintieri, and a perfectly cast Peter Bogdanovich.

Although it would be great to see Chazz Palminteri break out of the usual tough guy roles and Robert Davi break through into a successful career of writing and directing, this is not the film that does either. Decent viewing for the family but neither th

A heist comedy with showbiz savvy oozing from its pores.

Jokes about a matron at an Italian restaurant and a guy with a thing for fat chicks only take you so far.

Essentially a vanity project, a budget Ocean's 11 for Davi and his pals to sing some doo-wop tunes and ham it up.
