    Quite funny in places, Seemed to drag on abit but worth watching for a cheap laugh.

    Not a terrible mafia comedy, but not inventive either.

    Fish out of water story has one good bit: Grant's attempts at a Lower East Side New York accent. You can skip the rest.

    one thing that I find interesting, is that about 10 years after the Godfather, a lot of the major cast members did Mob movies to try to duplicate the success of said Best movie ever by doing an italian mobish sort of movie. Pacino did Gigli, Brando did the Freshman (where they make billions of Godfather references) and now, this is James Caan's attempt. and I must say that like his fellow cast mates (although The Freshman was the only one I would give a fresh rating to at about 60%) he failed to make a movie that was very good. In this movie, Hugh Grant plays an art Auctioneer who want s to marry his High School teacher girlfriend, but finds that she wont let him because of Her father (James Caan) who is in the Mob (what a classic excuse). he eventually gets her to accept and he promises to try to avoid hm being integrated in her father's business, by working together with her. eventually her father tricks him into letting him use his art actioneering place, as a money laundering scam. one of the paintings, by the Don's son, almost gets sold to a very willing buyer instead of to the Mafia plant but thanks to Hugh Grant the Mafia plant gets it and of course the son wants revenge so he comes to Hugh Grant's apartment to kill him but as both HG and his Fiance are there. one thing leads to another and eventually the son is dead and now HG and his Bride to Be have to get the help of James Caan to try to avoid being killed. The movie does have it's moments of funny that I really enjoyed however a few things killed it a lot for me. First off, you can't make Hugh Grant into a mobster. it just doesn't work. he can't pull it off. also the acting in this movie was Sub-Par. nothing very good about it. and of course the ending is as about as predictable as you can get. two scenes before the last one I knew exactly how the movie was going to end. and I was completely right. so, we can add this attempt, along with most of the other ones, to make a gangster movie as good as the Godfather in the Rotten category. this movie wasn't completely horrible it just didn't have enough redeeming Qualities to make me really enjoy it.
