|Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
Stallone is surprisingly enjoyable in a comic change-of-pace, playing 1930s gangster Angelo ``Snaps'' Provolone, who's trying to go straight, despite the domestic and financial chaos that surrounds him. Farcical comedy, complete
with mistaken identities and slamming doors, offers showcases for a number of supporting players (notably Palminteri as Snaps' henchman, Curry as a priggish speech teacher, Bracken as a stuttering stoolie, and Shearer and Ferrero as the Finuccis) but never quite takes wing from its French stage-farce foundation. The play was filmed before in 1957 with Louis de Funes.
