Storyline

Young Vincenzo Cortino, son of a Sicilian postman, delivers a package for his father and accidentally sees something he should not see. In a donkey's, well, he is smuggled out of town, where he tries to reach a ship headed for America. There, Vincenzo works his way up to the top of the Mafia. One day, his youngest son makes a mistake and has to leave town. A little later, he ends up as a casino boss in Las Vegas. But the heads of the other families want old Don Cortino out of the way. So, they shoot him 47 times and send a *very* attractive woman to distract his son from his casino work. Will he fall for her or will he return to Diane, who, by the way, had run for President successfully in the meantime? Written by Julian Reischl <julianreischl@mac.com>

Wow! You'd think by now Jim Abraham's material would be worn out and unoriginal. Think again. MAFIA! has got to be among one of the funniest parody films of the 1990s. This movie had me laughing for hours after I saw it, and even now when I think of some of the gags (especially the games in the casino) I can't help but to crack up. Also, the acting is BRILLIANT. Kudos to everyone who starred in the film! They all pulled off the ludicrously hilarious gags and delivered the most funny lines while keeping a straight face the entire time. I could never do that.
