Angelo "Snaps" Provolone made his dying father a promise on his deathbed: he would leave the world of crime and become an honest businessman. Despite having no experience in making money in a legal fashion, Snaps sets about to keep his promise. He is faced with numerous problems: henchmen who know nothing but crime, the police who are convinced he is hatching a master plan, and Oscar, who has just got his daughter pregnant.Written by

In the early 80's, the film was originally proposed as another project for director John Landis and star John Belushi, who was penciled in for the Snaps Provolone role. The project was abandoned once Belushi died but resuscitated a decade later, this time with Stallone in the lead. See more »
It is highly unlikely that Snaps's Italian father would have a Byzantine icon hanging on his wall. See more »
Okay Doc, here's the deal: marry my daughter, and you can use all the dough in this bag to start your linguistics school. Most men spend their whole lives tryin' to get their hands on what's in here.

Dr. Thornton Poole:
Mmm, that's right, Mr. Provolone. I've never seen so much money.
Dr. Thornton Poole:

Here's money, um... and here's more money, and - Oh, look. Here's a lovely new $20 bill.

Should be mandatory viewing for those who rip on Sly
This got some of the best reviews of any recent Stallone film, and after seeing it, I understand why. It's an absolutely hilarious, wonderful movie that shows one of Sly's best performances, and a great supporting cast. It was a long time before I got around to seeing it, but man, am I glad I did. I haven't laughed this much in a long time. And to those of you who jump on the negative hype bandwagon and make fun of Stallone like a bunch of lemmings, check this one out.
