Henry Hill might be a small time gangster, who may have taken part in a robbery with Jimmy Conway and Tommy De Vito, two other gangsters who might have set their sights a bit higher. His two partners could kill off everyone else involved in the robbery, and slowly start to think about climbing up through the hierarchy of the Mob. Henry, however, might be badly affected by his partners' success, but will he consider stooping low enough to bring about the downfall of Jimmy and Tommy?Written by

According to Joe Pesci, improvisation and ad-libbing came out of rehearsals wherein Martin Scorsese let the cast do whatever they wanted. He made transcripts of these sessions, took the lines the cast came up with that he liked best, and put them into a revised script, from which the cast worked, during principal photography.

In the establishing shots of "Idlewild Airport, 1963,"a Swissair jet's livery has black and dark green stripes and the title "Swissair" in lower-case red letters on the fuselage. That color scheme was introduced in 1981. See more »
Amazing is the one and only word to say for this film. I have always thought that Goodfellas was one of the greatest films ever made and set a landmark in the 90's or even in movie history. I bought Goodfellas last week and I got to watch the film a couple days ago. I really just couldn't lay my eyes off the film and everything about it was just simply worth watching. The acting was excellent, Ray Liotta, Robert DeNiro, Joe Pesci, Lorraine Bracco, and other actors did great and almost all of the characters they portrayed were 100% accurate. The camera-work also was brilliant and Martin Scorsese does a beautiful job by putting excellent camera shots in his films and I give him high credit for that. The soundtrack too is one of the best soundtracks ever made and the song "Layla," put chills down my spine of how great this song fitted the film. Overall, Martin Scorsese made his best film in my opinion and him and Nicholas Pileggi made an excellent and sharp script that made this, the greatest mob film still today.
Hedeen's Outlook: 10/10!! **** A+
