Rating of

A sweet natured comedy lightly riffing on Brando's most famous role, Matthew Broderick finds himself in the exotic animal trade by happenstance as he arrives at NYC for college. Penelope Ann Miller steals many of her scenes as the winsome daughter of aging crime boss Jimmy the Toucan (Brando).

Rating of

Mildly amusing gangster comedy that probably would've disappeared under the radar if it weren't for Marlon Brando's self parodying turn as an ageing mobster.
