Technical Specs


Did You Know?

Paul's main nemesis is named Ragazzi, which in Italian means "boys".

Errors made by characters (possibly deliberate errors by the filmmakers): When discussing the value of the gold, Vitti says: "$350 an ounce, 16 ounces to the pound, 90 pounds to the bar." Precious metals are measured in Troy weight in which there are twelve ounces per pound not sixteen as in the Avoirdupois system.

Ducks: How did he know about the money? And how did he know that Tony Cisco got popped? We didn't find out about it till this morning.

User Review

Very Funny, A laugh a minute

Rating: 10/10

All the revues said this was just o.k. but I have to tell you different. This film had me in stitches from the start. I am amazed how Robert DeNiro can be so strong in serious roles and yet he does comedy as good as any one. People like Robin Williams are trying to cross over to serious roles as is Jim Carrey and this guy makes it look like anybody could do it. Unreal !! Two thumbs way up for this one.
