Grant & Caan Lift Lighthearted Mob Spoof
This was an entertaining comedy, similar to several other films I’ve seen in which an innocent-appearing nice guy gets caught up in the middle of a mob family. (i.e. Matthew Broderick in “The Freshman.”)
In this film, it’s Hugh Grant who winds up in mobster James Caan’s clan. The latter isn’t known for his comedy but he’s good at it. Sometimes just the facial expressions on Caan’s face brought out big laughs with me.
Joe Viterelli is perfect for any Mafia-type story, as is Burt Young. It was a little strange, though, to see Young look like such a shriveled up old man. Jeanne Tripplehorn provides the romantic interest in here.
My only complaints were too much usage of God’s name in vain, especially for a comedy, and the typical on again-off again marriage plans you’ve seen so many times in movies for many decades. Overall, however, a good lighthearted comedy that should please a lot of people.
Just happened to rent this one on a whim, mainly due to the cast – Hugh Grant and James Caan – and was surprised to find a much better than average comedy. When the world of a sophisticated English-born art auctioneer in a Tony Manhattan auction house collides with the world of the New York mob, one expects a universe of comic opportunities, and the movie pays off in spades. James Caan is becoming one of those rare actors who is as adept at comedy as at heavier roles. The script is intelligently funny, and the movie is loaded with riotously incongruous situations. The scene where Caan attempts to teach the debonair Hugh Grant how to say “fuggedaboutit” in a hood’s accent is alone worth the price of the movie. An overlooked delight.
