A young American businessman, named Larry, travels to Italy to visit his girlfriend Jamie Lee only to find her missing. In his attempts to find her, Larry realizes that she may have been murdered by one faction of two rival mafia families battling each other for Genoa's crime empire centering on a ruthless don, named Nerescu, whom controls the drug trade and is fighting Madame Positano whom controls the prostitutes. Larry soon gets caught in the middle of it all, unless a reluctant local hotel manager, named Ute, and a streetwalker named Bella Blu can come to his help. But who can be trusted?

Horrible
25 July 2003 | by drcrouseSee all my reviews

This movie was bad... The main character would wander aimlessly for little to no reason what so ever. He is in love with his girlfriend, but long before he knows what happens to her, he messes around with someone else (but continues to risk his life looking for the old girl friend.) Pointless and horrible!

The acting is bad, the only names anyone ever heard of (Denise Crosby and Traci Lords) are barely in the movie, and the plot absurd.

I can not express enough that this movie should be avoided. I even enjoy some lousey movies if they can be humorous in their badness, but saddly this movie even avoids that.
