Storyline

When forced by the FBI to rat out mob boss Angelo Marcello, Carmine "The Beans" Pasquale is a wanted man on the lam being hunted by hit man Little Nicky Cappuccio. Taking along wife Gina and son Vincent, Carmine enters the federal witness relocation program and is given a new home and a new identity. Now known as The Cheeseman Family from Omaha, Nebraska, these former East Coast mobsters are relocated into the middle of a quiet, straight laced Mormon community in Utah where much to Carmine's frustration; he can't even find a decent cup of coffee let alone a horse track. Life in this small town becomes anything but ordinary once The Cheesemans move in. Many locals are weary, if not outright afraid of these rough around the edges outsiders, while others go annoyingly far out their way to try to embrace them. Despite the efforts of well meaning neighbor Michael Jaymes to help Carmine feel welcome, Carmine can't help but wonder if being this much of a fish out of water -- is actually ...

Could have been so much more!
13 December 2005 | by szirakiSee all my reviews

First of all, I liked the movie. But there were times I just felt like crying rather than laughing.

It's just too stupid at times. The movie could have been so much better! I didn't like the fact that we never heard about the Mormons beliefs(I find them the silliest in the world), but I guess people in the US wouldn't be ready for some "making fun of a religion."

However, the movie manages to show two opposite sides of a spectrum; mobster and Mormon, angry VS happy, good VS evil...continue to tired...

Overall: OK+ movie, because it makes me want a Mormon girl, teach her a thing or two about life AND sex!
