Morgan Fairchild shines here!
28 July 2016 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

"Mob Boss" tries very hard to be funny, and, at times, succeeds. A send up of the gangster/organized crime genre, it chronicles the growth of a dying mob boss's nerdy son from the day he is pulled out of military academy to the time he becomes head of an organized crime syndicate. How funny you will find this depends greatly on how you view low brow humor (e.g. child being baptized urinating on pastor and mob officials), as well as if you are watching for the women (Morgan Fairchild, Brinke Stevens - who's a delight), and, subsequently, the nude scenes. I enjoyed it, and found parts amusing (such as when Eddie Deezen drops his gun into a restroom toilet), though it is most certainly not for all tastes.

Overall rating: 7 out of 10.
