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.

Everything then falls apart when the son is accidentally shot. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Light humorous escapism
21 August 1999 | by See all my reviews

Better than average comedy/farce with a lot of good laughs, many at the expense of the overworn Italian Mafia stereotype. James Caan plays the spoof as well as he did the original (look for a brief reprise of his "Kiss Me Goodbye" role); Hugh Grant comes across better than usual; and Jeanne Tripplehorn is well cast as are all the other supporting Mafia types you have seen in the more dramatic Mafia films.

A good two hours of laughs and escapism.
