When two unemployed telephone pranksters decide to use their vocal "talents" to impersonate a Chicago mob boss and curry favor with organized crime in New York, the trouble begins. It isn't long before Johnny and Kamal (the "Jerky Boys" of crank call fame) are wanted by the local mafia, the police, and their neighbor.

Did You Know?
When Johnny prank calls the mob, he says, "Get me Tony, I said!". This is an interpolation of his line from the prank call "Super Across the Way" from The Jerky Boys' 1993 self-titled debut album, where he yells "Get Brett Weir, I said!". See more
When the mobster shoots the doorknob towards the end, neither the pulling of the trigger, the gunshot sounds, or the squibs sync with each other. See more
