Angelo "Snaps" Provolone made his dying father a promise on his deathbed: he would leave the world of crime and become an honest businessman. Despite having no experience in making money in a legal fashion, Snaps sets about to keep his promise. He is faced with numerous problems: henchmen who know nothing but crime, the police who are convinced he is hatching a master plan, and Oscar, who has just got his daughter pregnant. Written by

When Vendetti (Richard Romanus) is about to leave his office to put a hit on Snaps, he says, "Order out for pizza; we'll be back in an hour." The line is a reference to the actor's work as the 'Godfather' in commercial's for Godfather's Pizza. See more »
Aldo makes reference to Little Anthony and his Imperial. While we take this as an anachronistic reference to the doo-wop group, he could have meant it only as a reference to the car, so it's not wrong for him. See more »

Pop this guy!
Boss! We can't have a stiff in the house with company coming!
You're right. It ain't proper.

Should be mandatory viewing for those who rip on Sly
This got some of the best reviews of any recent Stallone film, and after seeing it, I understand why. It's an absolutely hilarious, wonderful movie that shows one of Sly's best performances, and a great supporting cast. It was a long time before I got around to seeing it, but man, am I glad I did. I haven't laughed this much in a long time. And to those of you who jump on the negative hype bandwagon and make fun of Stallone like a bunch of lemmings, check this one out.
