It was a chore to sit through this painfully unfunny mobster spoof!, 1 September 2011
Author: Terry Roehrig II from United States

The trailer didn't look all that abysmal and it actually looked like it could have been kind of funny with John Pinette and Harvey Keitel. Please keep in mind that trailers are extremely misleading and this movie was NOT funny by any means. Sure, there were some chuckles, but it gets old real quick and you'll be wishing the movie would end sooner rather than later, believe me.

The story revolves around Don Carini (Keitel) and his decision to step down and retire as Godfather. Rather than promoting from within, he drops the bomb on his gang that he had an affair while in Asia with a woman that ultimately led to him fathering a child. The child in question is one Younggu (Shim, who also wrote and directed this turd), a mentally-challenged grown man who is to acting what Uwe Boll is to directing. Once the young successor arrives to the Don's home, he is met by the Don's gang with skepticism. The Don has Tony (Rispoli) and Macho (Pinette) look after his son and train him to be the next Don... but we all know what happens next, Younggu fouls everything up, inadvertently falls for the competition's daughter, Nancy Bonfante (Donahue) and just basically tries to play everything on screen for laughs, even if it isn't funny.

I don't mind screwball comedies if they're funny. This one just wasn't funny. It was painfully bad, with some of the worst acting I've ever seen by a writer/director/star. The main character is so annoying and unfunny, that I was just begging to see the end credits. I don't know what Keitel, Pinette and Mewes were thinking by signing on to do this dog of a film. It actually made about $17 million overseas, which is a complete shock to me. I guess even actors need to pay the bills sometimes.

You might be tempted to watch/buy or see this one for Keitel, but I urge you to rethink that decision because the movie just gets worse as it goes along. Just when you think it couldn't get any worse, it tops itself and plays the scenes for the utter ridiculous and zany. I've been trying really hard to find one good thing to say about this movie ever since I started writing the review and I just can't do it. About the only thing that this film can say it did well was the production values and filming. It does have a Hollywood-feel, meaning it doesn't look like it was filmed in my backyard and the sound is good. Yes, there was a few funny moments because of Younggu's antics, but they were more out of pity and sheer lunacy, like a shake- my- head- from- side- to- side- I- can't- believe- they- would-resort- to- that- kind- of- humor kind of laugh. If anything, watch it for John Pinette, he's able to make you laugh just with his expressions alone.
