"Honor Thy Father" ain't no "Godfather".
3 April 2000 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"Honor Thy Father" is a very slow, unexciting TV made movie about an inner city Mafia family. A good source for school projects but thats about it. Otherwise, don't watch it for entertainment or you will be bored to death. I just have to say it's a good thing I got this film for free.
