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

The theme music was not composed for the film. It was recycled from the hit British television show Jeeves and Wooster (1990). 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 »
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.
