Storyline

Michael 'Mike' Turner is handsome, bright, a resourceful law student and perfect gentleman. Mike were perfect hadn't he been born in late 20th century Brooklyn, a New York borough dominated by the mob, in his case Carmine Mancuso, who luckily chooses to protect bright Mike, even against mob ruffian Gino, and his two inseparable buddies. Cocky Carmine Mancuso actually chooses to join the bloody business, sparing only his youth friends. Third mate Bobby Canzoneri, whose equally dumb parents hosted the gang as kids, naively aims no higher then tenure in the US Post. Yet Bobby ends up dead when a mob war erupts.

These guys must be promoting the movie
18 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

From the dialogue to the soundtrack, I felt like this movie was grabbing from other classic mob movies.

There were even direct quotes! ex: a conversation between freddie prinze jr and scott cahn about whether or not it was better to be loved or feared... come on! ... It was like listening to fingernails going down a chalkboard to here these two guys butchering one of the great mob movie moments between Sonny & C in A Bronx Tale.

The dramatic role was clearly too much for Freddie to handle. Scott Cahn and Alec Baldwin were bright spots, but there were too many other awkward moments that seemed like a collision between your typical romantic comedy and a bad mob movie.

If you're going to use the Stones in a mob movie soundtrack... at least pick songs that have not been used in other mob movies.

Don't waste your money and pay to see this in the theater. Its a rental.
