Storyline

Johnny, a small time criminal in his late thirties, has been trying to get ahead his whole life. Sure, hes managed to scrape up enough money over the years to refurnish his entire apartment, but he hasnt been able to do much else. Andrea, Johnnys girlfriend, knowing all too well of his situation and not happy about it, offers him a chance to better himself. He can work for her father driving a bread truck, or he can probably lose her. Johnny, sensing Andreas loss of patience, reluctantly agrees to the first part, but thats when something comes up... That something is Manny, a mistreated hit man for the Angelino crime family and Johnnys good friend. He tells Johnny about a deli the Angelinos use as a front for their drug trading, and about how it will have a million cash just sitting in it on the last day of February. All they need to do is get three guys not from around that they can count on to go into the deli and get the money. Johnny agrees to take part, but only on the condition ...

Light comedy about Bumbling Brooklyn Mobsters in Training
28 January 2019 | by ddc300See all my reviews

Crooked Lines is a good-natured comedy. Yes, some of the actors have no comedic talent (they look like neighborhood locals). Best performance came from Mario Cantone as a hyper-active gambler specializing in Hockey, of all things. And the scenes between Cantone and his Bull Terrier are hysterical. And the cameo of David Johansen wasn't bad either...quite funny actually. Ben Stiller was involved in the production and his mom Anne Meara had a supporting role. Jim Breuer wasn't bad, but the other leads lacked true comic timing.

Movie was filmed in south-eastern Brooklyn neighborhoods of Gerritsen Beach, Marine Park and Mill Basin. One or more of the production personnel hailed from one of those neighborhoods.
