While having dinner with Keith, Stony says she's never been to New York. Later when the women meeting the Godfather parody scene it's said that Stony is from the Bronx, this is because in true fashion of the mob each of the women are given nicknames. T.T is "T.T. from Detorit", Stony is "Stony from the Bronx", Cleo is "Cleomensa" and Frankie is the Don. See more »
Here's a movie that bombed because nobody had any idea how to advertise it. It turns out that "Set it Off" is the devastatingly sad story behind a string of unusual bank robberies. I highly recommend it as you really grow to care about the characters, which makes the final act all the more harrowing. My only problem is that the romantic subplot seems out of place. Other then that, make sure you have a box of tissues ready.
