What do you do? Sell women? Sell marijuana? - what d'you do? Where'd you get the twenty-five thousand? I wouldn't give you twenty-five cents. What d'you do? - you go out and you hustle yourself all over the street. Small time - no dignity! You don't beg.

Peter Falk's performance as a ruthless gangster was the best part of this movie.
What undermines this movie is McCain's stupidity. Even when he knows that the Mob is looking for him he goes to his friends and ex-wife for help. Doesn't he know they are the first places the Mob would look ? Didn't he have a plan for how to disappear with the money ?
