Times change, the boys up the chain want a bigger profit, so Vinnie's expendable He's assigned a hotheaded kid, Tony, the nephew of a local mobster. Vinnie's told to school the lad, use him for collections, and teach him some sense. What Vinnie doesn't know is that once Tony learns the ropes, Vinnie will be out. Tensions mount when Tony goes around Vinnie's paternalistic ways, takes a bet from an unemployed alcoholic, and demands that the loser's wife pay the vig in trade.

Excellent acting
12 September 1999 | by LBFSee all my reviews

I loved every moment of the movie. The plot and the characters were believable. Peter Falk, Tyne Daly, and Lauren Holly were great as usual. Lauren Holly's character's sacrifice for her worthless husband was heartbreaking. I encourage people to watch it.
