Storyline

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.

Goofs

Aldo makes reference to Little Anthony and his Imperial. While we take this as an anachronistic reference to the doo-wop group, he could have meant it only as a reference to the car, so it's not wrong for him. See more »

Great
10 March 1999 | by drummer-3See all my reviews

I just love to see Sylvester playing anything else but macho studs, and in this movie he does and doesn't if you catch my drift. I think his portrayal of a godfather going straight is fantastic and the whole movie had me in hysterics more than once, fun stuff.!!
