Maria Conchita Alonso,
When Johnny discusses going 'legit' with Lil, they happily envision all the wonderful things offered by such a lifestyle. One of the benefits cited by Johnny was the ability to 'Say "hi" to a neighbor named Fred'. This was a clear tip of the hat to Fred Rogers, as Michael Keaton got started in the industry by working as a stagehand on 'Mister Rogers Neighborhood', when he was a young man still living in his native Pittsburgh. So close was their friendship that, when Fred Rogers died in 2003, Michael Keaton hosted a memorial program on PBS dedicated to his friend and mentor. See more »

This movie is just too funny, a totally non-PC gangster romp. If Mel Brooks made a picture about the Mob in the 30's, it would probably look like this. Too many great one-liners to to remember, and while its not for everyone, anyone who DOESNT laugh a whole bunch of times doesnt have a pulse. So, put it on and LAUGH you Iceholes!!!
