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

This was the first feature to be shot at the MGM-Disney Studios in Orlando, Florida. See more »
When Aldo points the revolver at Anthony when Anthony admits to stealing from Snaps, the cylinder is askew, which would prevent the gun from firing as the firing pin would have struck between chambers. See more »
I warned him, boss.
Anthony said it was a matter of life and death, boss.
And will you two mugs stop callin' me "boss"? It ain't respectable!

If you love Sly, if you love comedy, if you love gangster films, then this one's for you! It's got all that & more! Marisa Tomei playing Sly's daughter?? It works! The beautiful Italian import, Ornella Muti playing Sly's wife? It works! Chazz Palminteri playing a hood yet once again? That always works! Whatcha got here is 1 Mob Boss (the ever-elegant Sly) tryin' to go straight 'cuz he promised his dying father (Kirk Douglas's cameo), cops who just won't buy it, bankers who can't stand it, a mix-up with "a little black bag", a search for a husband for Sly's daughter, an annoying accountant who skims $$$ off the top to marry Sly's "other daughter, the one that's not Lisa", & this all happens in ONE MORNING!! Ya gotta feel sorry for the guy! How can he cope? He does it - just as Sly as he can be, too!
Buy this one if you can still find it. It's a comedy of 'great ethnic proportions'!
