Three Italian-American brothers, living in the slums of 1940's New York City, try to help each other with one's wrestling career using one brother's promotional skills and another brother's con-artist tactics to thwart a sleazy manager.
Conservative street cop Deke DaSilva (Sylvester Stallone) reluctantly agrees to terminate an international terrorist who has demanded media attention. But DaSilva's "at-home" tactics are very much put to the challenge.

Jake, an aspiring singer from Tennessee comes to New York City and finds herself working in club owned by a sleazy guy named Freddy. It seems Jake is under contract, and Freddy doesn't want to let her go.

Do you play an instrument?
Yeah, I can sorta play a couple of chords on this organ I have at home. Hey, I'll tell you what, why don't you come to my house and teach me a new song?
Go to your house, huh? I suppose that's so you can show me your organ, right?
Why do you think I'm conning you? I tell you I really do have this big organ!

I have always like watching Stallone movies growing up. I did see this movie when it first came out but that was so long ago, I had to watch again. I don't remember laughing this much the first time I saw it. I bought the movie and love it. I think Dolly and Stallone did an awesome job. Very light hearted and hilarious! If you're in the mood for something not too serious, then this is the movie to see. Plenty of laughs! I mean when else do you get to see Stallone in a movie where he's not shooting people or boxing in the ring. Don't get me wrong, good or bad, I've loved every Stallone movie I've had the privilege of watching.
