Not as funny, heartwarming, dramatic, action packed, or well-scripted as you would imagine. But there is a spit-shine aesthetic that gives it all the credibility and charm needed to elevate it to a minor classic.
Great chemistry between the leads. And feel like it's deniros first Bronx tough guy acting choice when you think about it, brought a lot of his choices in this film to goodfellas. The 80s score runs rampant in the most inappropriate of places. Great film that deserves its place in basic cable heaven
