Wonderful movie, like ones that are based on real stories.

A well made and charming gem.

A true story,.. and they didn't flinch.

Never talk to reporters.

A 1990s "Bonnie and Clyde"-like true story. A lot of foul language- but to be expected from organized crime. 3 1/2 stars

Nicely done. Good acting all around, especially from the leads and Andy Garcia. Captures Queens, the Bronx and the 1990's in NYC very well.

JUST LIKE BONNIE & CLYDE. BOLD RISK TAKERS.
DID NOT KNOW IT WAS A TRUE STORY UNTIL THE END. TOO MUCH BAD LANGUAGE.

Very well made film. Outstanding performances from the actors.

You really feel that you have been transported to NYC circa 1991 and are witnessing a sea change regarding the prosecution of Organized crime families after decades of their vile rule.

This film is superior to most of the product being created these days.

Worthwhile.

Since it was based on a true story, it should have taken the subject matter a little more seriously. It wasn't a bad movie, but it could surely have been done better.

Now worth the time... to watch two people take on the mob. The ending was so predictable.

Couple of naive yet daring love-birds decided to rob the mafia social clubs in NYC during the trial of mob boss John Gotti in 1991. Based on a true story as written up in a 2005 NYT's article: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/09/23/nyregion/23mob.html?_r=0

Reporter: Well, you know, we got
a saying in the newspaper world.
Rosie: I love sayings, slogans.

Reporter: This is a good one. This is a good story. It's like a hot girl with
a miniskirt, you know?
eh--I messed it up. A good story is like
a miniskirt on a hot girl.
Okay. You want it long enough to cover the subject, short enough to be interesting
