A forgettable parody of mob flicks that is to comically flat.

This pastiche of old school gangster films has a couple of funny moments, but spread over 90 minutes it soon wears out it's welcome.

About as average as parodies get. The laughs are almost continuous, but they don't rise above a chuckle. Still, it's better than most movies claiming to be spoofs these days.
