Just a couple of expendable guys
22 March 2016 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

If it weren't for Peter Falk playing a middle management Mafia guy this film wouldn't rate as high as it did. After a while stars Jon Favreau and Vince Vaughn are more annoying than entertaining.

Favreau and Vaughn are a couple of Mafia wannabes they want to become Made guys. Of course the last guy who dreamed of that, dreamed no more and that would be Joe Pesci in Goodfellas, a much better film.

Favreau plays a run of the mill boxer with a run of the mill record of 5-5 and one draw. He does some construction work on the side, but his real occupation is bailing out Vaughn from situations he creates with his own big mouth.

Vaughn is a small time hustler who enjoys nothing more than getting over on people even when he doesn't have to. He avoids actual work like the plague and has fixed ideas from the movies about how gangsters should operate.

Falk sends them on an errand to New York City and of course they think they're on the way up. After that the mission is screwed up in every way possible though Vaughn shows some chops in a bad situation. What is learned is that they're on the mission because they're two of the most expendable guys Falk knows.

The audience gets some idea of Favreau's almost unlimited patience after putting up with Vaughn for more than 90 minutes. You'd better have a reservoir of patience to sit through this one.
