Entertainment Reviews:

Rolling Stone - 09/21/1989
"...Sassy, screwball fun....Seidelman draws fine performances....Lloyd and Falk make riveting sparring partners..."
New York Times - 08/23/1989
"...The satisfactions come from observing the ways in which [Seidelman, Ephron and Arlen] exceed expectations in making an old hat seem almost like new....[Lloyd is] wonderfully funny..."

Description by

Here's the recipe. Start with a Grade-A cast (Peter Falk, Dianne Wiest, Emily Lloyd leading a smart ensemble). Add crisp one-liners by writers Nora Ephron (Julie & Julia) and Alice Arlen (Silkwood). Combine with the stylish zest of director Susan Seidelman (Desperately Seeking Susan) and bake a batch of comedy perfection. In this delicious caper, paroled labor racketeer "Dapper" Dino Capisco (Falk) is caught between a rock and a hard place when a "politically ambitious" prosecutor schemes to put him back in jail and a deceitful partner sizes him up for concrete shoes. Dino needs an ally - smart, resourceful and who doesn't pop her chewing gum. He needs his spunky, rebellious daughter Cookie (Lloyd). But first they'll have to cross a generation gap wider than the East River.

Product Description:

Dino Capisco (Peter Falk) has just been released from prison after 13 years of incarceration. He returns to his wife, his lover, and his child by his lover whom the wife is not supposed to know about. Wanting to improve his relationship with his daughter (Emily Lloyd, WISH YOU WERE HERE), Dino employs her as his driver. She soon becomes obsessed with his gangster lifestyle, and when she overhears his ex-partner's plan to cheat her father, she sets about learning the business quickly in order to save his life. Directed by Susan Seidelman (DESPERATELY SEEKING SUSAN).
