Reviews
Mine: A guilty pleasure. I think that this is a very funny movie. Who know that Sly had this comic ability? Good supporting cast, particularly Tim Curry. Recommended.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Stallone is surprisingly enjoyable in a comic change-of-pace, playing 1930s gangster Angelo ``Snaps'' Provolone, who's trying to go straight, despite the domestic and financial chaos that surrounds him. Farcical comedy, complete with mistaken identities and slamming doors, offers showcases for a number of supporting players (notably Palminteri as Snaps' henchman, Curry as a priggish speech teacher, Bracken as a stuttering stoolie, and Shearer and Ferrero as the Finuccis) but never quite takes wing from its French stage-farce foundation. The play was filmed before in 1957 with Louis de Funes.
