Jason Butler Harner,
With only the plan of moving in together after high school, two unusually devious friends seek direction in life. As a mere gag, they respond to a man's newspaper ad for a date, only to find it will greatly complicate their lives.
Trapped in his favorite restaurant during the worst snow storm in Chicago history, Jelly Dinotto, a lovable, misfit mobster, has one night to escape the family business and win the heart of Megan the woman of his dreams.
The problem? Jelly and his trigger-happy cousin, Nick, discover that two underachieving detectives are also trapped in the restaurant with a warrant for their arrest.
Sparks soon begin to fly, pistols light up, and the power in the restaurant goes out. Sanity is restored as Megan mysteriously finds herself in charge with the only remaining loaded gun.
As the snow continues to fall, Jelly must ultimately choose between the life he knows and the woman he loves in this engaging dark, romantic mobster comedy.
The characters and the depth of the way they intermingle in this wonderful film just blew me away. The intensity of the emotion and the overall diversity of the personalities makes for an incredible mix. The actors all play their parts so honestly, it feels like more of a situation, though sometimes uncomfortable, that you find yourself in.
The situation, though I won't be spoiling it for you, seems fairly normal in a film context, but then, as it unfolds, we develop our own emotions and we begin to choose sides with the various characters. In a way, the writing, which is incredible, gets the viewer into the film as if we are right there with the characters.
If you like REAL cinema, with REAL human relations, this is a great film for you!
