When Seth Green is in the plane drinking coffee, you see him wince a little - not because the coffee is hot - but because Vin Diesel had put his cigarette out in the coffee, prior to the filming of that scene. See more »

below average story benefits from good casting
11 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

Born the son of a powerful and fearsome crime boss, wannabe mobster Pepper recruits low-rent pals Diesel, Green, and Davoli to make a routine delivery, impress his old man, then finally go into business with him. Unfortunately for the young man and his pals, they get stuck in a bleak little town where violence, mayhem, and every other thing that can go wrong eventually does. It's no Goodfellas, but this watchable, well-crafted little mob story is easy to take, and goes a long way on its appealing cast and dark, profane sense of humor. The only major let down is the film's story which—while interesting—lacks momentum and builds toward a familiar conclusion. A not bad showing from the film's young and old cast alike, especially Pepper and Diesel. **½
