What are we going to do to settle this mess, anyway? The Chicago bosses are tired of waiting. I'm tired, you're tired. What's the solution?

There's a big laugh in this movie's opening, which proclaims what we're going to see is a true story, but then states that the names, places, and events have been changed to protect the innocent - uh, wouldn't all that then make the movie complete fiction? Whether or not the movie has basis in fact, all the same it ends up being an almost complete bore that is badly made. I see other commenters have pointing out the movie's various anachronisms, so I won't bother to list them. But the script and the direction are more of a problem. The movie for the most part is far too serious for its own good, without a sense of fun and with the characters endlessly talking about boring topics. I will say some of the acting by the participants actually is okay, but that only helps a little. Whether you're looking for a serious (while engaging) movie or a blaxploitation romp, this movie simply doesn't work for any audience.
