goodfellas 90210....
22 June 2000 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

the only redeeming portion of this film is mira sorvino.... rob weiss is self indulgent and the cast is nothing but a bunch of not so pretty, pretty boys waving their yahoo's around.... it shoulda been called goodfellas 90210.... too bad the scorsese reference makes it sound better than it is.... avoid this film.
