""Randy and the Mob"

A Feel-Good Look at Southern Life

Amos Lassen

Ray McKinnon is Randy Pearson, a wheeler-dealer and a Southern boy who has several businesses going in a small Georgia town. Economically times are rough and Randy soon finds himself in financial trouble and is forced to borrow money from loan sharks. Because his businesses are not doing well, he does not have the money to pay back his loans and Franco played by Paul Ben-Victor wants to collect. Because Randy can't pay he is deep trouble so he turns to his family. Now this family is something else. His wife is chronically depressed, suffers from carpal tunnel syndrome and is a baton twirling instructor. His identical twin brother is gay and owns an antique store. The mob of which Franco is a member decides to use Randy's businesses to move some of their goods and an enforcer, Tino (Walton Goggins) is sent to run everything. Business begins to pick up but now it is up to Franco to come down south to collect the mob's money.
Those of us from the south know how deep our southern roots are and that seems to be what this movie is about. The movie is very funny and the acting is excellent. Driven by the character of Randy, the movie carefully balances everything to give us good comedy. The humor is not only funny--it is very smart. Goggins is fantastic, Ray McKinnon shines and Lisa Blount as his wife is marvelous.

""Gentle southern charm" comes to mind -- funny (if you "get it") and with a subtle message. Nothing hits you over the head, no explosions, no F-bombs, just a nice "feel good" fun movie. We loved it. Safe to watch with your Momma."
Good enough to be considered a quality movie.

"I turned if off the first time after at the 20 minutes mark. A few days later I restarted (mover forward a few minutes perhaps). This turned out to be a very good quirky small budget comedy. Props to the writer, for such a complicated script, especially in the area of the protagonist and antagonist switch several times. The movie is character driven instead of plot driven (as most comedies are plot driven).The movie makes redemption possible for just about everyone involved in the story. Im glad I watched this it is a clinic for writers (im sure there are lessons for aspiring director and actors, etc as well because it is a fine movie). If you look odd but not over the top odd comedies wathc this but be warned the beginning is intentionally slow."

"This was a cute, insightful drama about man named Randy who in order to impress his wife, goes into debt with the mob. The mobsters come for him when he is unable to make good the loan, sending a very odd mobster named Tino to claim the debt. Tino is funny at first, but after awhile I found him someone annoying and overdone.

I did think Randy's gay brother was very well done, and so were the other mobsters. While I wouldn't watch this one again, I still found it amusing enough.

3 stars.
