"Explosively funny. Tautly dangerous. Absolutely irresistible!" -Los Angeles Times

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 (The Rainmaker), Eric Roberts (Runaway Train) and Daryl Hannah (Splash) "create emotion-charged characters who tingle with energy and play with conviction" (The Hollywood Reporter) 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!
