Thief pretends to be a cop and finds love.
6 January 2001 | by gregltSee all my reviews

This movie is a great one about a bumbling small time car thief who is tempted to get into the big time through helping the mob kill a witness who is about to testify.

Ezio Greggio does a credible job with doing everything on this movie, including writing, directing, singing the theme song, and starring in this film as the thief who pretends to be a cop.

Jessica Lundy plays Carol Graham, who happens to be a TV reporter who happens to bring Joe (Ezio Greggio) out of his life of crime. If you are a heterosexual man, I'm sure that you would turn your life around if you took a look at Jessica Lundy in this movie. Make sure you see the scene at the end of the movie when she is in the hospital room with Joe (Ezio Greggio) and you will understand why. Although I would not have made her character a hysterical ditz when things got stressful for her, Jessica Lundy did an incredible job with the acting in the film.

Dom Deluise makes an top-notch appearance as the judge who is frustrated by the fact that the witness who has a hard time remembering to point the finger at the mob boss because his head hit the concrete outside of the courthouse courtesy of a tackle by Joe (Ezio Greggio) as a last ditch attempt to try to kill the witness.

The bottom line is that this was a great comedy if you like a little action and romance thrown in.
