Quotes

[Frankie is hiding a knocked-out mobster who happens to keep slipping wind]
Frankie Delano: Ma'am.
Jennifer Barrett Allieghieri: Frankie?
Frankie Delano: We've got squirrels.
Jennifer Barrett Allieghieri: Squirrels, Frankie?
Frankie Delano: Yes, ma'am, big squirrels. They... they tend to overeat preparing for a difficult winter and sometimes they bloat and often they get caught in the walls and to get out of the walls they have to ... deflate and that's what is causing the passage of... windage.
Jennifer Barrett Allieghieri: Oh...
[sighs]
Jennifer Barrett Allieghieri: Poor things.
Frankie Delano: Yeah, tough luck... tough luck.

Ciao, Tony Quinn
3 June 2003 | by artzauSee all my reviews

This was Tony Quinn's last film. He was dying of cancer of the throat when the film was being made and it shows in his weakness in the film. Appropriately, he gets offed and indeed, he was dying and died before the film was released. A grand old man who gave us lots of moments in hundreds of films from bad guys to good guys, always in the character realm. This film with Maddy Stowe and Sly Stallone is a fun film that wanders between being a kind of Prizzi's Honor in the chick-flick mode to a rather slap-stick comedy. However, what the reviewers herein who are panning Stallone with their "he's over the hill" comments seem to miss is that old Sly can do more than Arnie Swartzenegger clenched teeth grimacing action films with usually lousy story lines. True, this film at times can't seem to make up its mind whether to be a black comedy or pratt-fall filled lampoon of the traditional gangster/mafioso genre. No matter. It's fun because Stowe and Stallone are a delight to watch. Although, it does make one sad to know this was old Tony's last film, we should appreciate he worked right up to the last gasp, as it were. Ciao, Tony and thanks for all the good times. You'll be missed.
