Set on the streets of New York's Little Italy, this dramatic series of character studies chronicles the lives and relationships between a disparate pair of Italian American cousins. Both of them want to leave the poverty of ghetto life, but each takes a dramatically different route when one of them joins the mob and the other accidentally impregnates his girlfriend. When the young gangster gets into deep trouble, the other must reevaluate his goals and his true feelings about his family. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Never amounts to much."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"A fantastic flick from stem to stern; Penn & Roberts are just flawless together."
‑ Scott Weinberg, eFilmCritic.com
"Mickey Rourke at the height of his powers."
‑ Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com
"A gangster story with an odd Horatio Alger point-of-view. It's nonsense, but it's nonsense with some unpredictability and a conman's easy style."
‑ Jake Euker, F5 (Wichita, KS)
"A colorful, funny and very authentic slice of New York City street life. One of the most underrated, overlooked films of the 1980s."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
