A washed up singer is given a couple days to compose a chart-topping hit for an aspiring teen sensation. Though he's never written a decent lyric in his life, he sparks with an offbeat younger woman with a flair for words.
An art-house auctioneer finds himself getting in deeper and deeper with the mob after learning that his teacher girlfriend is the daughter of a major mobster. Things get worse when a godfather decides to launder his no-talent son's gory paintings through the art house and gets the FBI into the picture. Everything then falls apart when the son is accidentally shot.Written by

In the Chinese restaurant, Gina's fortune cookie plate jumps from being directly in front of her on the table to being in the middle of the table between shots. See more »
[Frank's about to 'shoot' Michael]
This is probably a stupid question, but is this going to hurt?
No. You won't feel a thing.
[FBI device with fake blood detonates]
That actually hurt quite a lot. Is it suppose to hurt that much?

As the movie ends, "THE THE END" is displayed on the screen. This refers to Frank's restaurant, The La Trattoria, which translates to The The Trattoria. See more »
This movie was a joke. And I don't mean it was funny. Yes, I did laugh a few times, but when you have such bad continuity, and bad acting, and bad jokes, and bad plot lines, and bad... I can't say enough. How I suffered through this piece of tripe, CONTRIVED tripe on top of it.
Wow, I couldn't believe how "The Mafia" was so unbelievably and horribly stereotyped, and how the FBI guys were portrayed as morons in the beginning and then as cunning at the end, all just made me wince. And to mix surprise gun violence at the end of such a "mix-up" light hearted movie, where the wise guys are all bufoons throughout, just didn't make sense.
I love mafia flicks, and I love silly movies. This movie just stank.
