Comedy Version of 'Reservoir Dogs'
12 February 2002 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

That's how Joe Bob Briggs put it when I first saw this film back in 1995 on The Movie Channel. In early 2002, it was on late night on TMC, and I got to check it out for the first time in years.

Still a great crime movie with excellent dialogue and acting. For 'Soprano's' fans, you will definitely love seeing many of your favorite characters pop up in this earlier work, many of which are minor roles. Treat Williams, Paul Schulze, Frank Vincent, and several others give great performances. The action sequences, consisting mostly of close-up gun battles, are a little hard to believe, unless people in New York are lousy shots. But the storyline and comedy bits definitely make this a worthwhile film to watch, especially for fans of mob movies.
