Academy Award winner Robert De Niro stars as the Italian bicycle racer who falls in love with a mafiosi's younger sister in the middle of an underworld war being waged by The Gang That Couldn't Shoot Straight. Baccala (Lionel Stander), the mafia don controlling Brooklyn, has survived through attention to detail: Every morning he has his wife start his car in case there is a bomb. When he discovers one of his thugs, Kid Sally (Jerry Orbach--"Law and Order"), is getting greedy, Baccala orders him to arrange a six-day bicycle race at a local armory. But Kid Sally is a very poor organizer; the race is a disaster; and Sally declares war on Baccala. Meanwhile, Mario Trantino (De Niro), the racer Sally has brought from Italy, falls in love with Kid Sally's sister (Leigh Taylor-Young). Now love blooms as the bodies pile up in this gangland comedy.
