Naive, bumbling Corky Romano, the outcast son of a Mafia boss, is recruited by his family to infiltrate the FBI and steal any and all evidence that will put his cranky father in jail. But he's in way over his head when he's made out to be a super agent. It's a reputation he must live up to as he tries to fake his way through one tough assignment after another while hunting for the elusive incriminating proof of his father's illegal activities.
Peter Falk's wide range of acting skills make him a favourite of mine, the more because his skills are not pushed in our faces but seamlessly blended into the weave of whatever role he acts
This film, then, was a real disappointment to me, He's ill in it anf looks to be really dying, but his lacklustre role seems like wallpaper, and who ever gets absorbed with wallpaper. Other viewers may find this film humorous and clever, but it doesn't work for me. If you're a Falk fan try it your tastes being different from my own, you may well enjoy it. For myself I wouldn't give it shelf-room Its 'slapstik' )one of my fave comedy sytyles) has neither slap nor stick (Funny faces need a funny man to generate laughs) my advice...pass it up.
