A film that builds itself up for greatness only to become a BIGTIME disappointment
28 May 1999 | by See all my reviews

I happened to stumble upon this movie by accident one night while I was flipping through the channels and I got caught up in the film right from the very beginning. It looked like it was going to be a good mafia/comedy film full of surprises and humorous plot twists and I got what I expected for the first hour. Then, the film went totally downward and decided to change from an entertaining and interesting comedy to a tragic drama filled with sorrow and a few un-answered questions. The acting was fantastic. Kevin Pollak was the scene-stealer as a mafia hitman opposite Joe Mantegna, who was equally good. You can't blame the actors because they all were good. Joe Pantoliano portrays an insane hitman who "HATES FRENCH CIGARETTES AND FRENCH MODEL AIRPLANES" and it is a remarkable performance. However, the last half hour began to get worse and worse every minute because it never got back to the subplots of the coffee shop owner who wanted to "trouble" his competitor by using his mafia pals and the tobacco shop owner's son who was brutally assaulted by a hitman because the son accidentally bit the hitman's crotch. What happens? You never find out. Maybe in a sequel? I doubt one will ever exist because no one really cares about this movie. After seeing the whole thing, I can understand why. Best Scene: A hitman walks up to the godfather and says "I quit" and the godfather begins to swing his arms around in a circle and pushes them in the hitman's face and says "OOOH, The hitman burns!!!"
