Storyline

When loan shark Jack 'the Ripper' Lane, who is too violent even for his mob extortion boss Nathan Vincent's taste, breaks Italian restaurant owner Gino Giani's fingers, he and his daughter Theresa hire the A-team, but get cold feet after threats to their entire family. So Hannibal, alias Sean O'Shea, deliberately takes a loan from Lane to start an Irish pub cum restaurant, The Naked Lady (where busboy Murdock's new vocation is that of union representative), and then doesn't even give him a seat, thus provoke him to a sniper assault, and then takes on Vincent's by own (hard-hand enforced) juke-box business...

Goofs

After the shoot-out in the restaurant, Hanable hands Geno the 16 MM film from the camera in a metal film can. This is not a VHS tape. They would have needed to develop the film and add the soundtrack which would normally take lab processing. They would not have had time to do this. See more »
