The Guys: Three Wise-Guys
The Problem: Dead vs. Alive - there just aren t enough dead bodies to keep the Mob-owned funeral parlor alive
The Solution: Create Inventory!
Academy Award nominated Danny Aiello stars as Frank Tramontana, a hearse driver who unwittingly gets drawn into a scheme his co-workers have concocted for a series of unfortunate accidents designed to clean up the neighborhood and fill their funeral parlor with much needed customers. As the body count rises, they stumble and bumble their way through the sidesplitting antics of this new business plan strewn with familiar faces like Jon Polito (American Gangster) and Frank Vincent (Phil Leotardo The Sopranos ). But things get a bit complicated and problems are further exacerbated when Frank s provocative ex-wife (Academy Award nominated Lesley Ann Warren) reappears to give Frank a dose of reality.

Then there's a nice drive to the countryside and plenty of good food and drinks. The funeral parlor is a social club for the old Italians. But the shortage of corpses leads the actors into finding solutions to getting more bodies.
The film started out somewhat light and full of funny jabs amongst the three whackis who work together there. But it becomes clear that these are lost and unhappy men. Their loneliness and neediness is painful to watch. It is supposed to be funny but it seems more like total pathos.
Danny Aiello dresses well and has an eye for the ladies. He picks up a woman less than half his age who claims she is a widow still in mourning. Naturally we get to see them going at it that night. She is duped into thinking him richer and more powerful than he is. Looking for s sugar daddy she explodes when she finds out she's been fooled. Everyone is on the take. Very sad.
Then!!! The film rapidly gets violent with body bags and blood and dark streets and blunt instruments and revenge. Alarmingly angry and depressing developments for a comedy!
However I did have to laugh when the young Nino, endlessly wondering where his father went, discovers him in cementa shoes a. Yes he finds him at the bottom of the bay when he hmisled drowns there by accident.
Others seemed to think it was funny. I found it alarming. Could it have been my own state of mind? Why is the main actor so old?
Goes from light to a rather dark comedy with a surprise ending; I certainly never found a slow moment!
