“Organised crime has never been this disorganised!”
This gangster parody set in 1935 charts the rise and fall of good-natured New York mobster Johnny Kelly – aka Johnny Dangerously (Michael Keaton) whose brother is a crime-busting district attorney.
This enjoyably silly stuff from Clueless (1995) and Look Who’s Talking director Amy Heckerling zips along at a fair old pace and is peppered with some great one-liners.
There’s fun support from a cast that includes Joe Piscopo, Peter Boyle, Dom DeLuise and Maureen Stapleton, but the film belongs to Keaton, who once again shows his comedic talents to entertaining effect.
