Product Description

Product Description

'Godfather' spoof from the 'Airplane' and 'Hotshots' team. Dim Mafia Don Vincenzo Cortino (Lloyd Bridges, in his last role) has ruled his underworld kingdom wisely (well, fairly wisely) for many years. However, now he must choose his successor, and Cortino's two sons are the only candidates for the job. One (Jay Mohr) is a handsome war hero, the other a raving psychotic. Now, which should he opt for?

From Amazon.co.uk

This hapless comedy may actually work a lot better on video than it did in theatres. A parody of contemporary mob movies (with a few sidebars skewering such hits as Forrest Gump and The English Patient), Mafia! most closely resembles the first two Godfather films in its generational saga of a gangster family. Lloyd Bridges plays Don Cortino, a native Sicilian who presides over a crime syndicate, and Jay Mohr plays his Michael-Corleone-like son. The film is by Jim Abrahams, formerly of the Zucker-Abrahams-Zucker directing team (Airplane!, The Naked Gun), single-handedly trotting out the old dumb-joke aesthetic that worked wonderfully a lifetime ago but looks a little creaky in the era of There's Something About Mary. Silly allusions to every crime film (GoodFellas, Casino) produced in the last three decades and featuring at least one wise guy or made man find their way into Mafia!'s gags, but most are arbitrary and shrugged off. The film tanked in theatres for good reason; on the other hand, Mafia! might have a lot more to offer if you're slumped on your own couch at the end of a long day, ready for brain-dead entertainment and absolutely apathetic about comic integrity. Even a film this instantly stale on the big screen might have its place in video posterity. --Tom Keogh

The films Mafia is a film which is only funny to someone has seen all the mob films because it makes jokes about them all and only by seeing the originals can you make sense of the joke and find them funny. The films travels along the same lines as Godfather I, II and III making jokes about the films as it goes along, but also, jokes are pulled in from Casino, Goodfellers and any other gangster films. This hilarious spoof is one that must be seen by anyone who watches and enjoys movies about the Mafia and the mob.

This comedy is a spoof of many films such as "Godfather" and "Casino" It is well put together and is a laugh a minute. The actors/actresses are rightly cast in this enjoyable comedy which is definitely worth watching.

Depending on your sense of humour, this little film might be very entertaining or a complete waste of time. Sure helps if you understand all the spoofs. Corny, predictable enough, but worth watching just for the guard sheep. I loved it.

You'll either love it or think it is rubbish.
If you haven't got a sense of humour don't bother.
if you have you watch it more than once.

Yep it is another one of those movies in the "Airplane" genera. When they do not try to hard some of the areas are funny. One really has to be in the mind set for this movie. If you have seen others like "Airplane" then this movie will not be as impressive as it could be. If this is your first foray in to the world of puns and parodies it holds its own.

As you might expect from Jim Abrams, this is a silly spoof film where the plot - such as it is - exists only to link together a series of otherwise unconnected gags. It's not his best by a long stretch, but it's still enjoyable for what it is. There's also a certain poignancy in that this was the last screen appearance by Lloyd Bridges.

A stream of one liners and visual jokes that simply cannot be seen just once. One would be bound to miss something while still laughing at something else.
