After the death of his older brother, Giuseppe "The Guppy" Calzone (Kevin McDonald) becomes head of the Calzone Mob Family. His aging father (Dom DeLuise) knows his son is not cut out for the job, so he sends him to "Mafia University." 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

Ouch!
21 October 1998 | by (South Coast Metro, CA) – See all my reviews

As a fan of really bad movies, this one was hard for even me to stomach. It made Anaconda look like a masterpiece of cinema. This movie reeks of Dom Deluise (coincidentally one of the stars). I love Kevin MacDonald from Kids in the Hall, but nothing could have made this movie worth making--for anyone involved! From horrible acting to horrible writing, this movie stinks through and through. I dare you to watch.
