When Harry shows Bobby DiLea the box of money, all the cash is rubber banded into neat piles. Later Harry shows Moe the same box and the cash is loose and there doesn't appear to be as much in the box as earlier. Then, when Harry and Moe go down to the casino, the money is in neat piles and the box is filled up again. See more »
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.
