Trivia

The shot on TV with Heckel and Jeckel in the apartment is actually a snippet from Reservoir Dogs (1992). This is because the director could only use stock from other films owned by Artisan Entertainment. See more »

No "Usual Suspects" but I don't think it was meant to be
4 July 2004 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

First, I like Mafia movies. Second, I like comedy. I find this movie to be more of the latter. And I enjoy it. I found Johnny Galecki to play the most interesting and funniest character in this movie. It's a good movie overall, enjoyable, and yes, I do own it. In my massive collection of 10 DVD's, this is one of them. I'm no film buff, but it has its good parts and it has its bad parts. I won't over-analyze it, but I liked the plot twists... all of them.. didn't like the overuse of profanity... loved the comedy parts. It has some awkward dialog and what sounds like dubbing, but it is entertaining, and I watch it on a regular basis. Give it a shot! I rated it 7 / 10
