Turn up the Sinatra, put on a leather jacket, and slit into a rollicking, high-voltage movie that produces tears of laughter. Mickey Rourke ("The Rainmaker"), Eric Roberts ("Runaway Train") and Daryl Hannah ("Splash") create emotion-charged characters who tingle with energy and play with conviction in this modern-day classic that's as robust and powerful as Italian espresso!
In New York's Little Italy, smooth-talking hustler Charlie (Rourke) works in a restaurant and dreams of one day buying his own with his girlfriend Diane (Hannah). His wiry wheeler-dealer cousin Paulie (Roberts) waits tables, skims money off checks and is always scheming to score big. But they're all about to pull a scam on the wrong guy – Bed Bug Eddie (Burt Young, "Rocky"), the Mafia king of Greenwich Village!
Now these small-time con men are in big-time trouble – trouble so big that even their mobster uncle might not be able to save them!
