Storyline

Vincent D'Onofrio portrays Sgt. Randozza, a beefy and gay Chicago cop. One night, as he's leaving a bar with his lover, a gang of high-school punks with baseball bats decide to do some "fag-bashing". Tony's gun cools them off, and after giving them a brutally verbal dressing down, he forces the leader of the gang, the leather-jacketed Jimmy, to come to his house the next night for dinner. Jimmy shows up, frightened out of his wits, and in a wild scene that includes Eileen Brennan as Tony's ditzy mother, the young tough gets a harsh lesson in sexual tolerance. Written by Anonymous

Disturbingly effective gem of a movie
24 December 2002 | by (Ruidoso, New Mexico) – See all my reviews

I continually watch this comedic little gem of a movie because it acts out what every gay-bashed man would want to do under the same circumstances and in the same manner that Carrie handled her tormentors. After watching D'Onofrio's insanely funny lecture to his bashers, we are treated to Eileen Brenan's over-the-top portrayal of his wacky Italian mom who serves up as much fun as pasta. The final scene with a handsome young wrestler brings home the message and sends me back for another delicious serving of this well scripted, well acted movie, however disturbing the topic may be to both straight and gay audiences.
