Mildly amusing film about mobsters, with a touch of romance
18 June 2007 | by inkblot11See all my reviews

Mario Bellini (Adrien Brody) is an undertaker to the mob. If the dead bodies come in riddled with bullet holes, Mario still makes them look good. Having inherited the business from his folks, it is all he knows. But, the job causes problems with Mario's love life. He aspires to get married but when he brings the lady in question back to the funeral home, she sees a corpse and runs away quickly. Poor Mario. As it happens, a turf war breaks out between two factions of the mob, with several gangsters ending up in caskets. One mob member, however, fakes his death and hides out at the Bellini funeral home. When his gorgeous wife, Maria (Kari Wuhrer) comes to the funeral, Mario likes what he sees. Oh, what a tangled web indeed. Will Mario get what he desires most, a wife? This is a mildly amusing movie, with some originality. Most of the violence is of the cartoonish nature and there are some funny moments, indeed. Watch a rolling, runaway casket careen down the main drag and you will be smiling. Also, there is a moment when a jealous wife catches her husband in a tryst and he shouts out that the other woman was "only teaching him to floss"! Brody is really quite nice as the funeral home operator, not withstanding his awful haircut. The rest of the cast, including Burt Young, is also good. The costumes, sets, and production values are adequate, indicating the film was probably made on a strict budget. Nevertheless, if you like such films as Married to the Mob, you might try this one for an evening. Although it is not destined to be an indie classic, it has its moments of fun, definitely.
