One of the funniest and entertaining mob flicks I have ever seen. The talented Danny De Vito and Joe Piscopo shine in Wise Guys with a ton of laughs. But what totally made this movie for me was Captain Lou... The Fixer. His character was da bomb - a rough, foul mouthed, tough guy that was always ready to kick some donkey :o) The trouble these guys get into and how they try to solve the problems with da boss is really something else haha.
I see a lot of lower ratings on the film here on the site... don't let those low ballers fool you. This movie is a classic, with a ton of legendary Hollywood talent that you should check out if you have the opportunity to do so.
