After the death of his older brother, Giuseppe "The Guppy" Calzone (Kevin McDonald) becomes head of the Calzone Mob Family.

The head of a rival Mafia Family (Rodney Dangerfield) sees this an opportunity to strike and bring the Calzone Family to its knees. Surrounded by danger, double-crossing and pasta, THE GODSON proves that some wise guys just aren't so smart. Written by Anonymous

A really bad movie that I can't help but watch
6 June 2001 | by (Virginia, USA) – See all my reviews

This is a bad movie that I watch almost everytime it's on. And no its not one of those movies that gets better the more you watch it. It's a really bad movie with horrible acting. It's a spoof plain and simple. There are funny parts like when Guppy (Kevin McDonald) is riding in his limo and the headlights of the car behind him begin to move around. I suggest watching it so you can have the knowledge of how bad some spoofs can really be.
