pretty dumb but funny so called mafia comedy movie from ben stiller?
27 February 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I unfortunately bought this DVD from one of those 2 for $10 bins at my local video store. I was bored one day and wanted a dark comedy and this says "Ben Stiller presents crooked lines, the funniest comedy you've never seen this year." that's apparently true, as it seems here on IMDb, no one has posted anything about it at all. I don't blame them if they did see it. I asked my pals who work at the local video store and none of them had heard of it either. Interesting no where in the credits is Ben Stiller listed other than the back & front of the DVD case. Jim Breuer, Burt Young, & Colin Quinn are listed as the head acts in this film, strangely I only saw Colin Quin in like 4 scenes. Burt Young was decent but over all the film dragged on with stupid new york mafia clichés and every now and then a spattering of "f" words. Jim Breuer wasn't bad in his role either but everyone else in the movie was forgettable and the only interesting character in the entire flick was an annoying little dog who had a habit for "humping" a towel.
