Storyline

Sonny (Steven Chase) and Archie (James Duval) are two Mafia wise guys and "contractors" for a 300 pound, cigar chompin', obnoxious Mob Boss, 'Ma' (Felissa Rose). They shake down local business for "protection" and do the occasional contract killings or rival take-outs. A comet has the world in a panic; doomsday media pundits claim it's the end of the world but NASA says it's not gonna happen- it's just media hype. Sonny is rethinking his life; his time could be up whether the comet hits or not. Sonny's thinking marriage to a nice girl, maybe even kids and retire to a vineyard in Italy with his lifelong best buddy, Archie. Neither of them trust their boss and know Ma could rub them out once they are of no use to her anymore...maybe it's time to cash themselves out before Ma does. The world's top 1% aren't taking any chances. Big City's wealthy fat cats plan to stash their money, gold and valuables in mines in the rural mountains outside the city. A convoy will take the treasure there ...

If you are l[ooking for a cute little popcorn movie, go somewhere else.

Hands down, this is the worst movie I have ever seen. Now, take into account that I'm 62 years old and a life long movie fan. I have seen a remake of "Plan 9 From Outer Space" which was worse than the original. I didn't't even think that that was possible. But Garlic And Gunpowder goes to an all time low. I'm not going to give any spoilers, but the acting was awful. Just the fact that Judy Tenuta was near top billing should give you an idea of how bad it was. The plot was preposterous. There were lots of sophomoric jokes. But even those were unfunny. The only reason that I gave it one star was because they wouldn't't let me give it zero stars.
