Storyline

"Chop Chop" Frankie Carbone has made a career out of stealing cars for the mob in Chicago. An attempted assassination by a mob boss goes badly and Frankie retaliates, only to wind up in the hands of the Feds. Frankie agrees to testify against the mobsters and his life is suddenly worthless - unless he submits to going into federal protection. The FBI gives him a new name - Howard Akers - and relocates him to a sleepy middle-class suburb in Little Rock, AR. Howard catches the attention of his lovely neighbor, Leigh, a bored fund-raiser for a non-profit zoo whose husband, Dennis, is having an affair - and she knows it, but she doesn't know it's with her hot-blooded sister, Bootsie. Leigh becomes friends with the enigmatic Howard, but Dennis and Bootsie see an opportunity to earn the million-dollar bounty the mob has put on his head by turning him in to the mob.

Great coming-in-late-from-partying-with-a-girl-you-just-met Movie
23 September 2011 | by See all my reviews

It was a Fun cool movie. The Women were hot and sexy and dangerous. the man were mean and tough. the husband and sisters relationship was fantasy status. it was too dope. and any girl who had a bad bf had to have loved the swag of the housewife.

Come back from partying with a girl and watched this movie. eh, watched half of it, we didn't make it too the end. I'm buying this DVD now so i always have it randomly play at the golf club scene to keep pushing the mood along with company. ha ha. must see. great late night creeper move. mood setter. the scene on the park bench was too real. I recommend having this movie set in your DVD player ready to be played before you head out to any happy hour.
