As you'd expect, spunky Richard Grieco is decked out in lots of black leather. So are many of the other characters, so visually, this is a great film if that's your fetish.
As far as acting goes, all the leather is replaced by cardboard.
Characterisation is extremely complex. What you need to understand is that the teetotal, non-smoking, God-fearing family man is the good guy, and that the hard-drinking, smoking atheist with a few homosexual tendencies is evil. This may cause some confusion.
