A gem that you don't want to miss
19 June 2002 | by (Rockport, MA) – See all my reviews

I was fortunate enough to see a sneak preview of this truly wacky mob comedy, which hasn't been released yet. It's a great film, on many levels: The plot is so off-beat that you can't help getting drawn in. You get to see awesome actors like Paul Sorvino and Burt Young play with some fabulously funny writing. And director Greg Yaitanes creates a spaghetti-western like world that is just so visually COOL, you have to see this film on the big screen. Hopefully, this movie is coming soon to a theater near you!
