PG-13 | | Comedy, Crime
Set in the 1930s, an honest, goodhearted man is forced to turn to a life of crime to finance his neurotic mother's skyrocketing medical bills.
For legal reasons, the "Weird Al" Yankovic song "This Is the Life" was not included on the home video release of the movie.
How's tricks, Moroni?
Roman Moroni: What are you doing here, icehole?
Jocko Dundee: Hey, can't a fellow enjoy a night out gambling with some of his pals?
Roman Moroni: Don't bullshtein me.
Roman Moroni: Search this somanabatch.
Towards the beginning after Johnny initially meets mobster Dundee in his car. After the car leaves you can see the license plate on the rear . It is an undated New York plate with white letters on a dark background. That type was used in 1910 or 1911, not the kind that was used in the 1920's and 1930's which displayed the exact year that they were issued.
After the opening credits, you see "1935" on the screen. A car in the near lane of the street drives behind it. Then, another car (in the far lane) runs into the number sitting on the road, and smashes it to pieces.
In some versions, such as the VHS home video version, the opening theme by 'Weird Al Yankovic' has been removed and replaced with the same music that runs under the end titles. Presumably this was due to a music licensing issue. The DVD release restores the original theme by "Weird Al" Yankovic.
