Clark Kellogg is a young man starting his first year at film school in New York City. After a small time crook steals all his belongings, Clark meets Carmine "Jimmy the Toucan" Sabatini, an "importer" bearing a startling resemblance to a certain cinematic godfather. When Sabatini makes Clark an offer he can't refuse, he finds himself caught up in a caper involving endangered species and fine dining.Written by

In addition to the numerous "Godfather" jokes, the film also makes a reference to another Marlon Brando film. At one point, Sabatini mistakenly refers to Clark as "Kent." In the movie Superman (1978), Brando played Clark Kent's father, Jor-El. The Gourmet Club Maitre D' is played by Gianni Russo. Russo portrayed Michael Corleone's treacherous brother-in-law, Carlo Rizzi, in The Godfather (1972) and The Godfather Part II (1974). See more »
In the large room with Greenwald and Simpson, when Clark is seen from the front, there is a big barrel just behind him. But when he is seen from behind, the barrel is away from him. See more »
This is a delightful little movie by Andrew Bergman, the director of "The In-Laws". It features among other things Marlon Brando doing an incredibly funny take-off on his own performance in "The Godfather". Brando and Broderick play off each other beautifully and Penelope Anne Miller is equally wonderful as Brando's sexy daughter. Despite the fact that this movie is largely farce, the direction and acting give the characters a depth that you wouldn't expect. Full of surprises and off-beat touches. The one minor flaw is the performance of a Komodo dragon that looks suspiciously like a Monitor lizard - OK, is a Monitor Lizard.
