Format: DVD
This movie reminds me of tragedies like Hamlet where just about all the main characters die at the end. This movie was a very negative depiction of the illegal gambling/bookie world.
Peter Falk plays this aging bookie, Vinnie who is about to be replaced by this young jerk Tony, who is played by Freddie Prinze Jr. Lauren Holly (Marybeth) and Timothy Dutton (Frankie) are a young married couple with big problems because Frankie is an unemployed drunk with a tendency to make bets that lose him big money. Well, Frankie makes this huge bet that of course loses him like thousands of dollars. Tony contacts Marybeth who is already working like a dog trying to keep her family from bankruptcy and forces her to find a way to make payments on this huge debt and also forces her to have sex with him. I won't totally give away the end, but like I said just about everybody dies.
Freddie Prinze Jr. fans will be surprised to see their cute little good guy romantic comedy star playing a cocaine addict and all around jerk. Although, I thought he did all right pulling off that role.

Format: DVD
Money Kings (1998) is a movie that has lost none of its relevance,
even 10 years after its completion. Although billed as a mob movie,
this picture is very realistic and natural about those who are
compelled to gamble, the loansharks who profit from the juice, the
bookies who reap big profits on the bets, and the police who get
fat from payoffs for looking the other way.

The entire activity seems symbiotic, and harmonious, until a
wildcard is thrown into the mix, in the form of the nephew of a
made man, controlling the territory in which the pub is located,
played by Freddie Prinze Jr., his uncle being Frank Vincent's
character, (who seems type cast in this type of role), played to
perfection.

Vincent's goal is to replace the bookie, played by Peter Falk, with
the nephew, and there is no end to the chaos brought about by the
25 year old novice, first trained as a collector of illegal debts,
and then as a partner to the bookie, to the point that a
PezzoNovante or Capo Regime (Tony Sirico), warns that he will clip
both Uncle and Nephew if their operations are not run
professionally, and free of public scandal.

Lauren Holly plays the golden hearted wife of a clueless bum,
played by Timothy Hutton, unfortunately, associated with this lowly
role, unlike Torrents of Spring, in which he played a rich man with
Nastassja Kinski in the 1980's.

A questionable aspect of this movie, is Falk, playing a charitable
bookie, who covers the debts of his players, and soft on collecting
from his clients, patient enough with their human failings to the
point of limiting or rejecting their bets when they're jobless or
going through tough times.

Format: VHS Tape
This unambitious film from director Graham Theakston benefits from his creation of a believable Bostonian small-time gambling millieu run out of the bar owned by bookie Peter Falk. Falk is Irish Catholic but also connected to the local mob to whom he pays a percentage, and things change when the mob bring in Freddie Prince Jnr to help in Falk's uncollected tab. This is the most unlikeable character I have seen Prince Jnr portray, and giving him a cocaine habit provides a queazy parallel to his late father. Any business with a mafioso link is headed for tragedy, particularly when it is represented by Prince Jnr who has a gift for antagonism. Theakston's inevitable scenes of violence are unconvincing - one where Prince Jnr is slapped in the face is silly, and he lingers over the end - but the empathy built up for the characters overrides this weakness. Falk always benefits from someone to play off and here he has a wonderful rapport with Tyne Daly as his wife. She has a scene with Lauren Holly, a co-worker, where Daly describes the early sadness of her life which is a masterclass in acting. Holly is disappointing until she provides tears of fear in two scenes, but Timothy Hutton as her husband is miscast as an alcoholic. When Falk walks away from a scene of abuse, Theakston's enobling Irish music on the soundtrack may clue us into Falk's disgust but we are appalled at his inaction. This incident may be the deciding one for Falk to avenge himself, but since the sequence of events that climax the film alter our expectation, the criticism of Falk's character remains. Perhaps we are to believe that this inaction predetermines the character's fate, but it is still a disturbing choice. This film was produced by Cis Corman of Barbra Streisand's Barwood Productions.

One of my favorite OC movies, It supposed to take place in Boston, but it's so obvious it's Brooklyn NY, (N 11th street and Kent Ave. ) Tim Hutton plays a not so swift husband of Lauren Holly unusual role for him but he really pulls it off, If you enjoy
low budget OC movies definitely get this one.
