Storyline

Benny, a lonely drifter, is thrown off a train after cheating at cards, and into the life of Tanya, a lovely bartender. Tanya has been supporting her husband, a former ballplayer, since his accident, waiting for an insurance settlement that will solve all their financial woes. But when it comes, he refuses to share it with her, claiming with newfound piety that money is the root of all evil. She then enlists the help of Benny to concoct a scheme to get her fair share of the settlement, and he finds one: a local Catholic mission needs money for repairs and Benny decides to create a miracle that will encourage husband Henry to fork over the money - which Benny and Tanya will intercept and share.

Danny Nucci
22 August 2006 | by RenatacantadaSee all my reviews

I think I recall seeing Danny Nucci in the kid's show "Hey Dude" years ago, and he sure has grown up! He's hot! He is what made watching this movie worthwhile........ The premise of the movie is pretty lame and unbelievable, but Lara Flynn Boyle was lovely (this was before she lost so much weight). This must have been an early movie for Peter Dobson as well, I believe I've seen him in some other things since then. Luca Bercovici as Henry Mulhill was a wholly unlikeable character so you don't feel too bad for what goes on with him. Teresa DiSpina as Cece was a salty/sassy pleasure to watch. I would have liked to have her with more dialog in the movie. Again, unless you want to see Danni Nucci as a romantic lead (as I did), I would totally pass on this movie.
