Editorial Reviews

The producers who brought you Dumb and Dumber and stars Joe Pesci (My Cousin Vinny), Kristy Swanson (Dude, Where's My Car?) and David Spade ("Just Shoot Me") offer up this "deliciously dark and wildly hilarious" (Jeanne Wolf's Hollywood) black comedy that'll leave you rollingwith laughter! Hit man Tommy Spinelli (Pesci) has twenty-four hours to deliver a bag of eight "former associates" to an angry mob boss in San Diego. But when a fellow traveler, Charlie (Andy Comeau), mistakenly takes the bag, the heads go to Baja...and Tommy just goes ballistic! While the hit man desperately tries to find Charlie, Charlie desperately tries to find a way to get thebag's horrific contents back across the border. Who's gonna wind up with the heads? And who's just gonna lose his? Only one thing's for sure...they'll both have to use their noggins to get out of this one!

Customer Reviews

I thought this movie was pretty funny, and had a good storyline.
Pumpkin Man
David Spade plays a very comical role in this film, as well as Kristy Swanson and a few less known actors.
C. Stucky
This is a very funny movie and I seem to laugh every time I see it.

This movie received a lot of grief for its total uninhibited irreverence. But if its irreverence doesn't offend you, you can find it a quite pleasing little comic gem. It's about all the misadventures of an American student visiting Mexico when his duffel bag accidently gets switched with another that was sent to verify a mob hit. Confusion and intrigue reign supreme as both parties desperately scramble to undo the mix-up. If you like this kind of comedy watch and enjoy. But if you find it cruelly offensive, don't say I didn't warn you!

Joe Pesci is a bag man for a mob family. His current contract is to deliver a bag containing the heads of eight rivals. This should be a simple delivery but circumstances force a bag switch. Now Pesci has a bag of clothes while a pre-med student has the heads. To make matters worse, the student has just driven into Mexico with his girlfriend's family. Only one small clue can help Pesci track down his cargo before a contract is taken out on himself.

What follows are typically improbable comedy situations that have the heads moving around and being seen by unreliable witnesses while more and more people get involved in trying to straighten out the mess. This gives various characters a chance to develop and show their true mettle. Things begin to get really out of hand but it is successfully tied up at the end with the viewer feeling pretty good about how it all worked out.

I expected this to be a darker comedy with plenty of black humor but it really wasn't. Considering the plot device this was a surprisingly happy and upbeat film. Pesci is very good as the bag man but his role is a support role as best (I guess I had also been expecting to see more of him). But although things were not quite as I had thought they would be it was still a very good movie experience. Check it out.

If you ever have traveled in an airplane and mixed up your bag with someone else's, this is the movie for you.
In spite of the gruesome name and plot of this movie, in which, Joe Pesci, a gangster tasked with delivering a duffle bag of eight heads removed as evidence of a mob ordered hit, the movie manages to be hilarious.
What happens is that Pesci's bag of severed heads gets mixed up with the bag of a hapless medical student going to meet his fiance's family for a trip to a lovely Mexican resort hotel.
How Pesci tries to retrieve his bag and the student tries to conceal the ghastley luggage he has inadvertently brought with him to the resort and all the mix-ups in between keeps the movie fast paced and rollicking.
Many extraneous characters become involved in the plot, leading to mix-up after mix-up, all drawn into this macabre comedy against their will.
You will love Pesci, Diane Cannon and George Hamilton. However if humor based on such a repugnant premise is not your cup of tea, pass this one by. It is not for the faint of heart.
If you liked either one or both of the "Weekend at Bernies" movies, you will surely enjoy this.

I saw this movie on tv, then rented it. I love it! It is no masterpiece, but it is a very refreshing change of pace for a movie! David Spade is awesome, and so is the rest of the cast! If you like quirky comedys, give this one a chance, you will not be dissapointed. Off-the-wall and absolutely hailarious! 8.5 out of 10!

Joe Pesci is hilarious in this movie

the movie has such sick humor that it's funny (only in the movies though)

the cast is picked out quite well

the idea of the story is quite creepy and amusing

the situation with having the heads and trying to give them back is hilarious

just an all out hilarious movie

glad I got this on dvd

it's worth the watch over and over and over and over again for years to come

I ran across it on cable and watched it, for lack of anything better to do at the time. Amazingly, I found it absolutely hysterical, laughing so hard, I could hardly breathe! It showcases Pesci's overlooked and under- appreciated comic abilities. If you liked him in My Cousin Vinny, you'll certainly get a kick out of this one. It might be a bit too slap-sticky at times for some people, but it is definitely worth adding to your collection. I will be looking forward to it's eventual release on DVD.

Joe Pesci, David Spade, and Todd Louiso are the ones who keep this movie interesting and funny. Oh, and the lady who plays the grandmother. Everyone else seems be going through a "bad acting" virus. Veterans George Hamilton and Dyan Cannon just seem like they'e only doing this movie because work for them is hard to come by these days. And who is that John Cusack wannabe who is the star of the movie? This movie would have better off with the real John Cusack. But joe, David, and Todd provide all the comic relief for this dark comedy.
The movie is about a duffel bag switch at the airport, one of which contains 8 heads being delivered for the mob. That says it all right there.
In some stores, this dvd is available for a very good price. If you find it at one of those stores, I definitely recommend this dvd. Fans of Joe Pesci will also be impressed with this dvd.
