Movie Summary

Director:
David Mamet
Released:
1988
Rating:
PG
Don Ameche and Joe Mantegna shared the Best Actor Award at the 1988 Venice International Film Festival for their work in this acclaimed comedy by David Mamet. Jerry (Mantegna), a misfit Mafia henchman, seems destined for low level jobs like keeping an eye on Gino (Ameche), a shoe repairman fingeredby the mob to confess to a murder he didn't commit. But THINGS CHANGE when Gino is mistaken for a Mafia boss and the two are suddenly catapulted to the highest levels of mobster status... a dangerousadventure that only friendship will see them through alive!
