Movies like this show why I go to see everthing the Matthew Broderick does. Unexpected at many spots. Great fun to watch. Brando does a good self parody.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis:
New York University film student Broderick falls in with loony mob family headed by Brando in this infectious, off-center comedy. Not an outstanding film per se, but strong cast and New York flavor, plus Bergman's original and amusing screenplay, put it over. Best of all: Marlon's knockout performance (remind you of anyone?), and his rapport with Matthew.
