Product Details

Here's the recipe. Start with a Grade-A cast (Peter Falk, Dianne Wiest, Emily Lloyd leading a smart ensemble). Add crisp one-liners by writers Nora Ephron (Julie & Julia) and Alice Arlen (Silkwood). Combine with the stylish zest of director Susan Seidelman (Desperately Seeking Susan) and bake a batch of comedy perfection. In this delicious caper, paroled labor racketeer "Dapper" Dino Capisco (Falk) is caught between a rock and a hard place when a "politically ambitious" prosecutor schemes to put him back in jail and a deceitful partner sizes him up for concrete shoes. Dino needs an ally - smart, resourceful and who doesn't pop her chewing gum. He needs his spunky, rebellious daughter Cookie (Lloyd). But first they'll have to cross a generation gap wider than the East River.
