It seems to me that the makers of this film are poking fun at both the harmless gangsters of GUYS AND DOLLS and ROBIN AND THE SEVEN HOODS, and at the High Seriousness of THE GODFATHER and its progeny. I know of only one Gangster film that surpasses it in outright weirdness - ONCE UPON A TIME IN AMERICA - and the only one that is more darkly comic is GOODFELLAS, which most people treat as serious drama.
If you ever scoffed at the good hearted gangsters of the '50's and 60's musicals, or laughed at the pretensiousness of 70's and 80's gangster noir, you may like this film a lot. Or you may hate it. It is a very peculiar vision, and not to all tastes. But don't dismiss it without a look. There will probably never be another film anything like it.
In fact, I bought the VHS. It was too expensive to purchase retail (price was close to $100), but I was lucky and found it at a second-hand movie/music store. (bought it for $6.00 Candadian). I have since worn it out and plan to buy the DVD.
The cast obviously had fun making this movie. I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of any of the actors in this film.

Stellar cast, great light dialog, reflections of a bygone era, action, intrigue, keep-you-guessing plot all combine for a very entertaining film.Published on December 31, 2013 by Paul Yatsko
