"The Good Bad Guy" tells of the comic misadventures of an Italian immigrant who takes a job only to find out it's murder-for-hire and he's working for the mob. An amateurish, low budget production, this lame flick delivers lots of blatant silliness, exaggerated stereotypes, and slapstick as our unlikely hero, the good bad guy (Greggio), stumbles and bumbles his way out of trouble and into love. In spite of its shortcomings, this little flick made me laugh and Lundy is juicy eye candy. Keep expectations low and give "The Good Bad Guy" a try.
