Storyline

An aging Brooklyn mob boss summons his nephew Robert Monte, a Wall Street whiz kid who has been shielded from the "Family" business. The Don solicits a promise that if anything happens to him, Robert will steer his wiseguy crew legit so that they will not spend the rest of their lives in jail. Robert surrenders a reluctant promise. When his uncle dies suddenly, Robert transforms the mob social club into a real estate office and struggles to navigate the mob crew into legitimate careers. Meanwhile, a gorgeous FBI agent named Julie Capp works feverishly to build RICO indictments against Robert and his crew who just can't help reverting to their old-school hoodlum ways. In the scramble, Robert and Julie find themselves fiercely attracted to one another. Will these star crossed lovers find romance? Will Robert succeed in steering his crew legit? Will Julie's RICO indictments fall? Written by Denis Hamil

Ten Stars out of Ten
22 December 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this move on The Movie Channel tonight- and was truly amazed at the high quality of videography and acting. I wanted to come to IMDb to read more on the director-- Joe Otting-- and the actors-- as many of them i recognized but couldn't place quickly-- yet all were incredibly talented.

This is really just a movie with a lot of heart. It's a feel-good movie that takes me out of the stress of the day- and makes me believe again in holiday magic, love and the art of movie making.

New York City, which is a city near and dear to my heart, is another character in this movie. Mr. Otting did an incredible job with sweeping camera pans that showcases the city. He made New York and Brooklyn mirror the growth of the mob guys who are under pressure to clean up and shape up. He also turns the city streets and restaurants as backdrops to a classic star-crossed love. It felt like a modern day Romeo & Juliet or rather West Side Story, but with a unique and funny mob spin. This movie really had it all- laughs, love, sorrow and excitement. It was definitely a rush from start to finish. Very captivating.

Perhaps my one regret was that the movie ended. i would love a sequel, where we see the lovers together, perhaps in a different city backdrop, working together on a new challenge/opportunity. These are characters you love- that you care about- and like a very good book- at the end you want more. I can still hear the well-written banter of the two stars as the car drove off to the sunset- and i was clinging on to every word. I would love to see this movie again- and would love to see these characters again. In my opinion, ten out of ten stars. Worth every second.
