In a change of pace from his offbeat thrillers and Hitchcock homages, Brian De Palma directed this blend of comedy and action starring Danny DeVito, Ray Sharkey, Joe Piscopo, and Harvey Keitel. Two low-rent New Jersey mobsters who are best friends are ordered to kill each other by a mob boss, but neither can bring himself to do the dirty deed.
