Did You Know?


The dream sequence involving the gun battle at Ruthless Ruth's is very close to the opening sequence of The Killer (1989) by John Woo. For example, John Stamos enters by knocking on the door, shooting someone in the stomach, forcing his way in by using two guns (one in each hand) simultaneously and then shooting the bartender (who is armed with a shotgun). There is also a Mexican standoff between the Kate Vernon and Eileen Brennan, which is very common in a John Woo movie. See more »

You learn the lesson you never part from family it's thicker than blood and water!
15 December 2006 | by blanbrnSee all my reviews

This 1993 "Crypt" episode " Till Death Do We Part" is well done, the story stays pretty simple, and really the ending is not to much of a surprise. John Stamos stars as a gigolo romancing an older mob connected lady who's played brilliantly by Eileen Brennan, only to have wandering eyes which will drive him to trouble! At a dinner meeting the mob crew has the Stamos character eyes a young and sexy waitress(Kate Veron) then the next thing you guessed it he's caught fooling around. This episode then transforms into a waitress held captive thing in a remote location with a mob slaying in the waiting. This episode then takes a look into the future by using the foreshadowing technique so well, as we see the Stamos character sees this is nothing more than a gold digging waitress. So you never take an outsider over the family which runs thicker than blood and water! This episode features Frank Stallone as a mobster, it's nice to see Sly Stallone's young brother in a small role.
