After watching this, you'll understand why he doesn't do comedies. Any jokes that come off only do so by the power of Danny DeVito's manic performance. Danny and Joe Piscopo have good chemistry as the lowest and least able wise guys. They're not really wise guys, just a couple of stupid guys.
They lose $250k of gangster money. Each one is offered a way out if they killed the other. Instead both of them high tail it out to Atlantic City.
In another director's hands, this could have some potential. Certainly Danny DeVito and Joe Piscopo work well together.
