Original, funny, and intelligent.

This movie is so full of charm and characters that vary from the stereotypical to oddly original not to mention some of the best casting and acting you'll see in a small film its amazing its not more popular. On the surface this seems like a typical italian mafia-esque piece, but the characters are so endearing and plain hilarious at times you won't catch yourself thinking 'Mean Streets' once. Everything about this movie is good, the story, the pacing, the cinematography, it all comes together into a very funny, original and intelligent movie. I couldn't get up from watching this after the first 5 minutes, go to the videostore you probably won't be disappointed.
