A flat, one-note comedy about mobsters, this adds yet another nail in the Mafia movie genre. Set in Toledo, Michael Rapaport stars as Kevin Gower, a young, up-and-coming junior executive, whose future and romantic life is jeopardized by a visit from his long lost father who happens to be Ohio’s "godfather." Kevin’s father Sal Fortuna (Robert Forster) quickly disappears in an alleged car bomb hit, whereby Kevin is forced to become the reigning head of Toledo’s Mafia. Christopher Walken shamelessly appears as Max, a Mafia goon; who despite his dynamic persona, is rendered catatonic by the movie’s wooden dialogue and situations. Kevin and his band of merry goons are pursued by rival gang members as he attempts to carry on his otherwise normal existence. His girlfriend (Christine Taylor) suspects Kevin of having an affair and follows him to prove it. After being caught in the arms of his father’s mistress (Jamie Anderson), Kevin must somehow find a way to win back the woman he loves, keep his job, and avoid being assassinated. Comic mix-ups and mistaken identities continue to be spun, amidst a barrage of bullets, horrendous dialogue, car chases, and hideously redundant mob cliches.
