In the two years between when filming wrapped and the movie's release, Daimler-Chrysler (somewhat controversially) cancelled production of the Jeep Cherokee model which actually featured pretty heavily as product placement throughout most of the movie. So by the time the movie came out, you could no longer purchase a new Cherokee. See more »

Mobsters sons wish for the freedom & glamorous lifestyle their fathers had.
Loved this movie! It's the type of movie you'd want to see more than once; so much of the humor is so subtle that it's easily missed. Deals w/ the next generation of baby mobsters, & how much has changed since "back in the day". Performances by Pepper, Davoli & Green have a surprising depth; their characters are so immediately recognizable that it's almost scary. As a strong Diesel fan, I have no complaints at all about the Taylor Reese character. Diesel's moody acceptance of his position in life & his lack of options, is gloomy, but believable. The strong point of the film is the loyalty & love the characters have for each other. It gives a true nobility to characters who mainly live outside the law.
See it twice. No, three times!
rating: 8 out of 10 (Okay, I really mean 9!)
