Storyline

Two FBI agents, Mike Tozzi and Cuthbert Gibbons, try to bring down a loan-sharking business run by the mob. Things become increasingly intense after a series of crosses and double-crosses leave both agents at the mercy of their targets. But that doesn't prevent the sexual tension from heating up, as one of the agents gets tangled up with his informant's sister. Written by www.tnt.tv

Very underrated, a whole ton of fun
11 January 2016 | by See all my reviews

Bad Apple is a very hard to find, MTV produced crime comedy that doesn't look like much upon first glance, but contains some absolutely hysterical situational comedy, and just enough of its own quirky flavor to make it memorable. It stars a mopey Chris Noth as Tozzi, a slick undercover FBI agent who is trying to infiltrate a gang of New York mobsters while also falling in love with the sister (Dagmara Dominczyk) of his informer. He finds himself involved with two unsavory hoodlums: sour tempered Buddha Stanzione (Eliott Gould) and rampaging lunatic Tommy 'Bells' Bellavita (Robert Patrick). This is one of Patrick's shining hours and it's a shame no one has seen this because he truly subverts his strong and silent stereotype with a performance straight out of a loony toons movie. His Tommy sports the most terrifying blonde dye job I've ever seen, adding to his gleefully menacing aura, and whether he's happily intimidating everything that moves, or treating people by dual wielding chainsaws, he's an absolute treasure. There's supporting work from Mercedes Ruehl, Colm Meaney and Jim Gaffigan as well. It all floats by in a nicely entertaining package of hardboiled crime that accented wonderfully by its harebrained sense of absurd comedy. My kind of combination.
