Cast makes this picture well worth watching
9 July 2001 | by RonnieJamesDioSee all my reviews

Crazy Joe is a well made gangster picture starring Peter Boyle as the title character The names are all changed up but it's not hard to tell who's who. The cast is terrific Henry Winkler,Eli Wallach,Charles Cioffi all support a terrific cast of faces that any mob movie buff such as myself would recognize. There's only one problem this movie is very hard to find so catch it any way you can it's well worth it
