Harry Valentini and Moe Dickstein are goons for the Newark mob boss Castelo. They are sent to the race track to place a bet on a horse but screw it up by betting on the wrong horse. Now they owe $250,000 but they separately get an offer to work it off; by killing the other one. Together they go off to Atlantic City where Harry's mobster uncle Mike may be able to bail them out.

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 »
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.
