Besides having one of the best casts of comedic actors of the late 80's, MBH also features some of the most iconic mob character actors at a time when we were in peak mob movie. Nora Efron and Nicholas Pileggi were married at the time and both did extensive interviews with Henri Hill: who's autobiography -and the interviews - both movies are based upon.
The contrast between the two movies couldn't be more stark in tone, yet the charm, fast talking, compulsive lying, womanizing character of Vinnie/Tod comes through almost more believably I'm MBH, IMHO.
I can watch and enjoy this movie almost any time I have the opportunity to see it. It was one of the first DVDs I owned. 2 thumbs up.
