"They're criminals so they aren't gonna call the cops and the cops ain't gonna care if we rip off some wise guys." Tommy Uva (Pitt) has just been released from prison and wants to start a new a better life with his girlfriend. When the jobs they get don't pay nearly enough Tommy comes up with an idea to get rich quick. After going to the trial for mobster John Gotti he hears of an address and decides to rob a mafia social club. This idea becomes more dangerous when they find out who is is, but when Tommy finds "the list" things become worse then he imagined. I'll start be saying that I love mafia movies so I was excited about this one. The fact that this is a true story made me that much more excited. I was not disappointed. The movie does start off a little slow but is a movie that you should keep watching because it is very worth it. You are forced to pick who is the bad guy, the robbers, the mob, or the FBI. On one hand it's hard to root for a robber, but when he robs the "bad guys" it doesn't seem so bad. Andy Garcia as the head of the family is pretty likable so you can't totally feel that Tommy and his girl are doing the right thing. To me the fact that all the lines of right and wrong are blurred makes this that much more fun and enjoyable to watch. I would not put this in the same category as Donnie Brasco or any Scorsese movies but this is very much worth seeing and you will not be disappointed. I liked it. Overall, a very good true story/mob movie that is well worth your time. I give it a B+.

"Rob the Mob" (2014 release; 104 min.) brings the story ("based on true events" we are reminded at the beginning) of Rosie and Tommy, a twenty-something couple. As the movie opens, it is New York 1991, and Deee-Lite's "Groove Is In the Heart" is blasting from the screen. Rosie and Tommy are down on their luck, after a flower store robbery goes badly. By the time Tommy gets out of jail 18 months later, Rosie is working at a collection agency, Tommy comes up with another "brilliant" idea: as he listens to the mob boss Gotti's trial, he picks up on the fact that at the mob's social clubs, nobody carries a gun. Next thing we know, Rosie and Tommy are holding up one mob social club after another. To tell you more would spoil your experience, you'll just have to see for yourself how it all plays out.

Couple of comments: this movie is directed by Raymond De Felitta, the New York indie movie director who also brought us the excellent "City Island" some 4-5 years ago. De Felitta does an excellent job recreating what New York was like in the early 90s (not a pretty picture). Second, props also to screenwriter Jonathan Fernandez, whose script is paced nicely, with some sprinkles of much-needed humor, and turning mostly bitter-sweet toward the latter stages of the movie. Third, beside the mob story, the movie also makes some pointed comments about family struggles (Tommy being estranged from his mom and younger brother). Fourth, there are a number of great acting performances, none more so than Nina Arianda (best known for winning a Tony a few years back for the Broadway play "Venus In Fur") in the role of Rosie. Interestingly, she plays Rosie as a blonde (we later learn what the real-life Rosie looks like).

Worth Seeing! This little indie movie about a young couple who decide to rob Mafia social clubs in Queens is worth seeing mostly for the strong acting performances by Michael Pitt(Boardwalk Empire), and the actress who plays the devoted "Bonnie" role. Suporting roles by Michael Rispolo, Burt Young, etc are strong and entertaining. I had some trouble with the Godfather role played by Andy Garcia. Despite the inventive script, Garcia's Spanish accent comes through, and his performance and make-up are unrealistic and caricatured; My only other beef with the movie was the end which is blurry, & tires to be "too artistic" nevertheless, we all know what happenned to these 2 kids who made a very stupid choice. Despite these minor flaws, this movie is worth purchasing or renting, even if you don't like mob movies.

This is a case of a film being driven by the performances and the script. I say that because I don't think director Raymond De Felitta achieves a real tone for the material. It starts in a bouncy comic way and veers off in a made-for-cable documentary tone and the switch in gears doesn't mesh. De Felitta is probably trying to pay homage to Martin Scorsese but it ends up as a half-hearted attempt. The strength of the screenplay by Jonathan Fernandez which is rich in detail and characterization is able to overcome these obstacles. The film is abetted by terrific performances by newcomers Michael Pitt and Nina Arianda who make both a funny and sensuous larcenous duo. Their sexual chemistry ignites the screen. The supporting roles are impeccably cast with Andy Garcia a standout as a gentleman mob boss. It's a shame this film took the straight-to-video route because it has a whole lot more to offer than the standard summer offerings.

This is a true story, although I do not recall this young couple who ROB THE MOB, in the newspapers.

Then again, back in the day- when this takes place, the papers probably had news on mafia activity so often, it probably didn't stand out much.

Or at least not until the Feds started working hard to bring the families that comprised the mafia, down.

I plan to research this Bonnie and Clyde couple ( as dubbed by the press) online, to see how close to reality the movie is, because it all seems pretty darn realistic, but also pretty unbelievable if only because of the sheer audacity and madness of this twosome.

It is these two young lovers who ROB THE MOB and don't feel bad about it. Or overly worried.

What is familiar, are the mob names thrown around in conversation as well as the mafia characters in the movie- so many of these depicted or mentioned, really existed.

This was actually an interesting story and if the movie had a flaw, it was that you didn't get to know the Bonnie and Clyde couple as much as you wanted to.

All you really know, is they are young, totally in love, and devoted to one another- along with being incredibly crazy( and naive) to mess with the mob.

Stay for the end and start of credits, because you see the photo of the actual young Bonnie and Clyde couple.

Over all, I sat pretty amazed at the total chutzpah this couple had, to rob from the mob.

The gravity of what they are doing, never seems to register with either of them.

And perhaps, that is exactly why they dared to do it.

This is the period in time, when things started to go south( luck wise) for Teflon John Gotti.

All the actors did their roles justice.
