| copycat of better mobsters movies
Three lifelong friends grow up in a tough Brooklyn neighborhood. Carmine Mancuso (Scott Caan) is the vain one. Bobby Canzoneri (Jerry Ferrara) is the cheapskate. Michael Turner (Freddie Prinze Jr.) is the scammer. In 1974, the 3 young boys found a dead body in the woods. Carmine took the lighter, Bobby got the dog, and Michael took the gun. Now in 1985, Michael is studying at Columbia Law and getting close to rich fellow student Ellen (Mena Suvari). Bobby is living at home whose biggest dream is a postal job. Carmine is getting in with wise guy Caesar (Alec Baldwin) who is a captain in the Gambino family.

This is not as rich as other NY mafia movies. Director Michael Corrente has created a world of clichés and expected characters. The three guys do a reasonable job. They have a good mix of personalities. Alec Baldwin does a very good wise guy. The story just lacks the needed tension. It feels like a thin simple mobster movie.
