The mobster Vincent 'Vinnie' Antonelli is under the witness protection program and the FBI agent Barney Coopersmith is assigned to take Vinnie and his wife Linda to a house in the suburbs. However their wives leave Vinnie and Barney and the agent gets closer to the gangster and befriends him. Vinnie is a bon vivant and a crook and does not keep the necessary low profile. The District Attorney Hannah Stubbs arrests him but Barney releases him from jail since he needs to testify against the Mafia. Soon Barney falls in love with Stubbs, but Vinnie gets into many troubles calling the attention of two hitmen from the Mafia. The police officer Crystal Rybak protects him and they also falls in love with each other. In the end, the good-hearted Vinnie becomes a prominent personality in the suburbs.

On the plane, when Barney and Vinnie are flying to New York, Vinnie is paying the stewardess for his alcoholic drinks. When he raises his left hand, to pay the stewardess, he is handcuffed to Barney's right hand. A few seconds later he is telling Barney about his tipping "philosophy". He asks Barney for a pen and Barney raises his right hand, which is no longer handcuffed to Vinnie's left hand. Then, a minute later they get off the plane and are handcuffed together again. See more
Warner dubbed the line "f--k you", as said by Steve Martin whilst shopping, for all PG-rated British versions, so that it became "up yours". The stronger version has, however, been shown on network TV in the UK, on Channel 5. The original obscenity was restored in the 2008 12-rated DVD. See more
