Rob the Mob (8/10)
Runtime 104 minutes.
is a terrifically-acted, well-paced mob comedy, based on a true story,
up until about the last 15 minutes when it loses all its pace and slows
down to a plodathon, complete with Johnny Mathis wailing Dream,
Dream, Dream (a little known 1964 waltz) under a maudlin montage of
shots that almost completely destroys what came before.
this continues the old Hollywood tradition of picturing the mafia as a
bunch of loveable, doddering, laughable codgers, it was anything but.
Still, Michael Pitt, as Tommy, and Nina Arianda, as Rosie, portray a
couple of goofy kids in 1991 who pick on the mobsters by holding them up
in clumsy, but effective armed robberies. The holdups are interspersed
with Pitt and Arianda’s love affair and a journalist, Cardozo (Ray
Romano), who tries to turn them into a 1990s Bonnie and Clyde.
Hollywood tradition holds firm by picturing the mob boss, Big Al (Andy
Garcia), as a gentle grandfather who spends his time teaching his
grandson how to cook. Director Raymond de Felitta gets great
performances by Pitt and Arianda, along with fine supporting
performances by the entire case, especially by Cathy Moriarty playing
in all this is a highly entertaining film. De Felitta keeps the pace
moving throughout except for the dismal last act.
