[DVD Review] The Dukes

The Dukes are washed up. Once the biggest group of the 60s, the doo-wop vets are now relegated to a circuit dominated by infrequent bouts of nostalgia-driven TV commercials. Fellow crooners and long-time friends Danny (Robert Davi, who also directs, produces and is a co-writer) and George (a comfortable Chazz Palminteri) talk the talk on a daily basis, putting their heads together about how to make ends meet, not only for themselves but the rest of the group, including former-Duke-now-diabetic Armond (Frank D'Amico) and Murphy (Elya Baskin), a friend of the group who always seems to be on the verge of nervous breakdown. When Danny happens to overhear a vital bit of information while accompanying George to the dentist, the Dukes decided that the only way to meet their financial needs is to crack a safe – but they can’t do it alone…

Clearly a labor of love for Robert Davi

Being an Auteur

Being an Auteur
Though Robert Davi is identified with mega-bad guys in such flicks as The Goonies, Die Hard, and Licence to Kill, he has also played an array of characters in more than 60 movies and TV programs. In part, Davi blames the press for perpetrating the image of him as archetypical villain, "instead of calling me an actor's actor," he says. "No one looks at your body of work." What makes it so much fun to play Danny, a former doo-wop singer down on his luck, in Davi's latest project, The Dukes, "is that he's a regular guy," emphasizes the Queens-born actor. "Also, I get the chance to play a singer. I interjected singing in Goonies, but here I'm playing a singer." A trained opera singer, Davi pauses to point out, "And I have a chance to be raw. A friend who saw the movie says this is the most he's ever seen of Robert Davi onscreen.

The Dukes

A crowd-pleaser for the Aarp set, Robert Davi's writing and directing debut The Dukes casts an affectionate eye on a little-explored milieu that's simultaneously mundane and rife with faded glamour. Davi and Chazz Palminteri play members of the eponymous doo-wop group, retro mirth-makers whose glory days have faded into distant memory. The two now toil in a restaurant for their brassy Italian stereotype of an aunt (Miriam Margolyes) and pine for better days and a solution to their seemingly permanent cash-flow crises. The harmonizers turn small-time crooks when they decide to steal a shipment of gold from dentists, with some help from good buddies Elya Baskin, a laid-off airline mechanic; corpulent stand-up comedian Frank D'Amico; and safecracker Bruce Weitz. An underutilized Peter Bogdanovich co-stars as the group's sad-eyed manager, a Willy Loman type who struggles even to land the group degrading gigs in ridiculous costumes. Considering the film's...

"The Dukes" Review. Full of heart and highly recommended

The Dukesby Peter Dimako, Editor Cavu Pictures , Sun Lion Films and Doo Wop Productions’ “The Dukes” sings a fine tune. Robert Davi makes his directorial debut on “The Dukes,” a comedic indie which one just can’t help loving. Davi, loved for his roles on many a film and TV offering including “The Goonies,” “Predator 2” and “Stargate Atlantis,” writes this work alongside James Andronica (“The November Men”). The story is easy to follow, focusing on a former doo wop band known as “The Dukes” consisting of George Zucco (Chazz Palminteri ) and Danny Pasquale (Robert Davi). They may have had the crowds roaring at The Brooklyn Paramount as the number one group in America but now in their ripe age, are shadows of their former selves. Their agent Lou (Peter Bogdanovich) tries to secure them any type of gig for them in order to keep them paying the bills. This
