Best friends Harry and Moe are go-getters inside a Newark mob outfit. They go get the boss's drycleaning. They go get his car. Now they have a new task: go get each other. The boss has secretly hired each pal to whack the other. Brian De Palma, whose Scarface and Carlito's Way are mobster-movie classics, finds the genre's funny bone in a comedy "filled with ideas and gags and great characters. It never runs dry" (Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times). Dan Hedaya and Harvey Keitel are among the ensemble's portrayers of kingpins and palookas. And Danny DeVito and Joe Piscopo play the pals whose friendship might survive the mob - if they don't kill each other first.
