Storyline

A bartender wants rid of an obnoxious drunk but not until the drunk has left a decent tip. So the bartender tells the story of two mobster families, the Minettis who work out of an Italian restaurant in the East San Fernando Valley, and the Mulroneys who work out of an Irish pub in the West San Fernando Valley. Mob war breaks out when one of the Minetti "boys" stiffs Big Paddy's daughter on her tip. We soon see why these hoods are called very mean men. Written by Anonymous

Cool Festival Film
16 June 2001 | by artloftySee all my reviews

Saw this film at two festivals....was my pick at both. Cut with style and effects as bizarre as the valley gangster characters themselves. A great "dude" movie, this film is a great comedy for any gangster film fan!
