Goofs

Not totally sure about this...but around minute 3 into the film (set in 1960) Joe and buddies are driving over a bridge. We are shown several views of NYC from this bridge...in one shot, I believe we see the Twin Towers in the background. If I'm right, this would not be possible since the Twin Towers were being built/completed in the early 1970s. See more »

Kinda 'Godfather lite', you have seen it all before....
3 August 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Very trendy c. '74 cast-Eli Wallach, Peter Boyle, Rip Torn, Paula Prentiss, etc. Even has the Fonz as a mob guy. An obvious takeoff of the Godfather, though nowheres near as good. The cast certainly brings this up a notch-Boyle and Wallach especially. I always enjoy seeing Fred 'Blaxploitation film' Williamson in a flick too.

Very dated-check out the boat cars, bellbottems, very '70s '50's fixation-tunes, etc-but worth yer while. Has an interesting run of things it touches on-Attica, Italian 'anti-defamation leagues', etc.

**1/2, see this with 'Donnie Brasco' or 'Friends of Eddie Coyle' to get a better idea of what's what.
