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

When Aldo points the revolver at Anthony when Anthony admits to stealing from Snaps, the cylinder is askew, which would prevent the gun from firing as the firing pin would have struck between chambers. See more »
I'll make you a deal, Mr. P.
What kind of a deal?
Well, I've become attached to those jewels; they remind me of Theresa. I'd like to buy them back from you for $50,000.
Now where'd you come up with another 50,000 smackers?
I stole it from you.

What is it, boss?
[Snaps takes what he thinks is a gun, but is actually a leg and thigh of chicken]
You took my gun.
[Connie leaves the room]
Now you're trying to tell me you stole another 50,000 clams since the last time I saw you?

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!
