Far from a bad film, but somehow it doesn't work as well as you hope - or at least, it doesn't live up to the talent involved. In what must have been a Hollywood execs dream to market, Barry Pepper, Vin Diesel and Seth Green are a gang of buddies trying to break into their fathers' old guard mafiosi operation (headed by Dennis Hopper and John Malkovich), but one botched delivery job later and they're on the run and desperate.

It died with a whimper at the box office, but word of mouth about the stars itself should have sold the movie huge - worth a look on video.
