Jane Austen's Mafia
Reviewed by Chris Bjuland
Rating: 10 Beans
very season there is a slew of crappy movies dumped on the public like garbage at the dump. "Jane Austen's Mafia!" must have filled the whole truck.
This movie has everything a BMNer would expect (and want); yawns, groans, stupid jokes, bad acting, a terrible script, HandyCam cinematography, and Lloyd Bridges.
The plot (or lack of) centers around a Mafia son (Jay Mohr) taking over for his dying father (Lloyd Bridges). This movie "spoofs" the Godfather, Il Postino, and some other movies that ended up on the cutting room floor.
Fun things to do during this movie: [in order]
1) Make fun of the people who actually laugh during this movie.
2) Bite your arm off without staining blood on the seat.
4) Curse the ticket agent who sold you a ticket at full price and wouldn't give you a student discount.
5) Go back to sleep.
6) Rewrite the script (as it plays out) into something that actually makes sense.
7)Try to figure out the logic of electing Christina Applegate as President.
"Mafia!" is such a terrible movie that it should nail the career coffin shut on most of the actors involved (literally in the case of Lloyd Bridges!).
Eh heh heh!
