Angelo "Snaps" Provolone (Sylvester Stallone) 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 (Jim Mulholland), who just got his daughter pregnant.Written by

Marisa Tomei played the daughter of Ornella Muti in this movie. Muti, born in 1955, is only nine years older than Tomei, born in 1964. See more »
It is highly unlikely that Snaps's Italian father would have a Byzantine icon hanging on his wall. See more »
You kept me a prisoner up here - like Rapunzel.
Well, you certainly ain't Snow White!
Look at the example you've set! Filling the house with thugs, goons, and hit men!
All right... sometimes I had to bring my work home with me.

Oh I know, Sylvester Stallone in an urbane period farce? Impossible, you say? No sir! He's actually very funny - as is the script (adapted from the play) and all the supporting cast! I totally love this movie and I show it to everyone I meet, despite their initial reactions - and they all enjoy it! Tim Curry is priceless as always and it's also Marisa Tomei's first movie. Vincent Spano, Peter Reigert, Yvonne de Carlo, Don Ameche, Kirk Douglas, Chazz Palminteri - more! It's so awesome!
