Storyline

This is a very black comedy. A mob courier is hired to transport the heads of eight murder victims to a mob boss. However, the duffel bag gets mixed up with the bag of a college student who is off on a vacation in Mexico with his girlfriend and her parents. However, the mother is a recovering alcoholic whom everyone believes is delusional when she claims to have found heads. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Hilarious entertainment from Pesci once again
18 January 2003 | by See all my reviews

A thoroughly enjoyable comedy with Joe Pesci again proving why he is my favourite actor with this hilarious performance as Tommy Spinelli.David Spade and Kristy Swanson are also very funny in their roles and some moments are so funny that you will not be able to control yourself with laughter. I would seriously recommend this film to anyone who loves a good laugh.
