      Audience Member Tawdry, shmawdry. A sexy romance. I LOVED it. John Turturro was to die for. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review darin c Something to watch. It's a story - not exactly based on a true one like it's supposed to be, but it's still a story. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Something to watch. It's a story - not exactly based on a true one like it's supposed to be, but it's still a story. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Good cast, interesting as I grew up listening to my Mom's music so I know the McGuire sisters' music well but didn't know about this connection to the mob. Men who think with their penises always get into trouble. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Something to watch. It's a story - not exactly based on a true one like it's supposed to be, but it's still a story. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member I saw this movie last night on bravo expecting it to be a good gangster Flick on par with Bugsy but was sorely disappointed since the film lacked much of a plot, The pacing was slow and felt like a tv movie of the week, the acting from the two leads john tuturro is bland and mary louise parker just looks pretty but is given nothing to do. Not worth watching at all only if you like mary louise parker or to see John Tuturro but even being a fan of his work i thought it was one of his worst performances yet. A better movie with john tuturro is clockers and Do the Right thing Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Read all reviews
