During the scene in which Wykowski discovers that his wallet has been emptied, Hennesey tells Wykowski that he's Black Irish. Black Irish refers to those of Irish descent who have dark brown/black hair and brown eyes, as opposed to the fair hair and blue eyes that are more characteristic of the Irish. The actor who portrays Hennesey has red hair and blue eyes. See more »
Well I'm disappointed. :-( This film deserves much more than a 6.6 rating! If you watch Brighton Beach Memoires you will love this film. Personally the 1st film was better but maybe because I could relate to a younger Jerome. But this film, oh yes! Christopher Walken you are my GOD! He is so funny in this film in my view! The way he makes the wise-cracking Jerome (Broderick) and fellow NY boy Epstein (Corey) is great. Ok he is a nut but that is Walken- he would be the worst Army officer I would want! Great film- the scene with the 'escort' is great! "You're not breathing! Breathe!" Unbelievable! It is also heart-warming and I love it! Overall I must give it a 8.5/10. Give it a try dont let the 6.6 rating fool you! HO NO!
