When Harry and Moe arrive at Uncle Mike's house it is bright daytime outside. Only minutes pass from the time they enter the house, when Frank goes upstairs to Uncle Mike's room and when Moe goes in the room and screams. The very next scene after Moe screams has everyone outside the house and all the house lights are on as it is nighttime and quite dark outside. Also the winds from the shore are much stronger indicating a major time lapse difference. See more »
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.
