Goofs

In the movie, "Bruce" sees the Boss of Bosses giving Freddy the "Kiss Of Death" and mentions that he knows about the kiss because he watched the Godfather movies. "Bruce" also mentions to the Boss of Bosses that he doesn't kiss as good as Marlon Brando. In actuality, Marlon Brando never gave the kiss of death in the original film "The Godfather". The kiss of death was actually first given by Al Pacino in "The Godfather Part II" to John Cazale. See more »

Quotes

Anita: Look, I'm a federal agent.
Freddy: Oh, my God.
Anita: The necklace I gave you was an electronic microphone. We've monitored all your conversations. We know your locations, all over the country.
Freddy: Oh, my God!
Bruce: Can't you say anything but, "Oh, my God"?
Anita: They used you, Bruce! You were their stooge! You weren't delivering flour, you were delivering cocaine. Drugs, Bruce.
Bruce: Drugs! Oh, my Buddah!
