Storyline

In the 1950s and 1960s Frank Sinatra was the head of the infamous "Rat Pack". He, Sammy Davis Jr., Dean Martin, Peter Lawford and Joey Bishop worked and played together. This film dramatizes their volatile relationships with each other and the Kennedys, Marilyn Monroe, mobster Sam Giancana, Judith Campbell Exner and the FBI. Sinatra helps John F. Kennedy get elected in 1960 with a little help from Giancana. Lawford, married to a Kennedy, is an unhappy go-between. Davis is fighting racism and insecurity. Campbell is sleeping with both Giancana and JFK who is also sleeping with Monroe. Written by Jim Sadur <jsadur@keyflux.com>

The Rat Pack
1 June 1999 | by Coxer99See all my reviews

Liotta is the only weak link to this decent about the the elite group of entertainers who lived a life of luxury and prestige. Cheadle, Mantegna are impressive as Davis and Dino, but it's especially MacFayden as outsdier Peter Lawford who adds dimension to the piece. The story is a bit unbelievable, but then again, these guys weren't exactly angels. Cheadle won a Golden Globe.
