Roger Ebert hated this movie, testifying that it was "the first movie I have seen that does not improve on the sight of a blank screen viewed for the same length of time." See more »
Ben, go home. Pack your bags, and leave town.
Nobody tells Ben London what to do any more!
[shoots Ben in the leg]
Ben, hop home, pack your bags, and leave town.
I'll hop home whenever I fucking feel like it!
[shoots the other leg]
Now, Ben, roll home, pack your bags, and leave town.

A modern metaphor for heaven, based around a single concept : "What if god was a gangster?". Directed by the son of the legendary Joey Bishop, Larry B has done an outstanding job with an outstanding cast.
Vic (Richard Dreyfuss), absent gang boss of a mythical copless city is getting out of the loony bin. His chief lieutenants (Gabriel Byrne & Jeff Goldblum) are busy vying for power in his absence, and his rivals (Kyle MacLachlan, Burt Reynolds & Gregory Hines) are busy trying to take over the entire city.
Where is the metaphor I hear you ask? Let me start you off, Dreyfuss is god..
