How do siblings deal with each other in their targets? This is the question tackled in this movie. Blue-collared Mickey drives a New York taxicab since the breakup with his promiscuous ex-fiancée Heather two years ago. His younger, white-collared brother, Francis, cannot let Mickey forget the tragedy of the "hairy ass": (Mickey's image of his apartment floor of the guy having sex with Heather after walking in on them). Finding relief in driving his cab, Mickey meets an art student named Hope whom he marries after knowing her for only 24 hours. Mickey also meets his old lover Heather, and learns more about life itself as taxi fares in the course of a summer. Francis, a young Wall Street corporate raider, unhappy in his marriage to Renee and led by his infidelity, continues his shots at Mickey throughout the film, only to find himself a plot device that lends humor and lessons about marriage and brotherhood when he meets and starts an dangerous affair with Heather, despite Mickey's ...

I found this movie to be hilarious, I actually laughed out loud by myself! "Come on Dorothy, it's all over"! Hahahahaha, the repartee is fast and funny between the Fitzpatricks. Not to mention there are so many 'hot' babes in this movie. I vaguely recall somewhere in the back of my memory that I may have seen this movie before, but even if I had it doesn't matter because the laughs were fresh, new and satisfying. The almost 'infantile' banter between the brothers is genuinely hilarious. John Mahoney plays a very convincing role as the dubious patriarch who sees his boys as if they were perpetually 12 years old. The funniest part of it is, the boys unconsciously and unwittingly play right into his hands, at every twist and turn of the dialogue. Tune into this flick for some hearty laughter, silly shenanigans and some surprising plot twists.
