"Turn up the Sinatra, put on a leather jacket and slip into a rollicking, high-voltage movie that produces tears of laughter" (New York Daily News).
Mickey Rourke, Eric Roberts and Daryl Hannah create emotion-charged characters who tingle with energy and play with conviction (The Hollywood Reporter), in this modern-day classic that is as robust and powerful as an Italian espresso! In New Yorks 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 cheques and is always scheming to score big. But they are all about to pull a scam on the wrong guy - Bed Bug Eddy, (Burt Young), 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!
