Smokin' Silly Slappy Fun

"Madonne! Smokin' Stogies isn't GoodFellas or even Analyze This, as far as quality is concerned, it's more like a home movie made by guidos and misunderstood by meddigans. The type of Mafia comedy going on here is more in the style of another movie called Mafia, but Stogies is made by and starring Italians-so already it's worth checking out. The dialogue by everyone is spoken like a cross between Jerky Boy Johnny's "Frank Rizzo" character and The Diceman exaggerated times ten-if you can imagine that. Stogies is a slapstick ride through Miami, basically it's a story about a week in the life of real Goomba-Guido type Wiseguys, the coolest kind if you ask me. Joe Marino is Marscone, Tony "Paulie Walnuts" Sirico is Boss Tony, and Frank Vincent (Casino) even joins in on the search for a million in missing Cuban cigars. The movie revolves around gold chains, women, money, cars, and making sure every hair on the Wiseguy head is in place. In a lot of ways, Stogies is more like another crazy low budget title, The Sopornos (go to Blockbuster and rent this flick with your girlfriend) as opposed to The Sopranos, meaning there's not much seriousness happening and no awards are being handed out. I've seen better, I've seen worse, but if you are looking for some drunken fun, grab a stogie and watch Smokin' Stogies. Capeesh? Best scene: "Beer & Ice.""
A great mob comedy.

"I laughed my bum off watching this movie. Tony Sirico from the Sopranos and Frank Vincent from Casino and Goodfellas are great.
The story begins in New York, then takes you down to Miami as mob capo Vinnie Marscone (Joe Marino) tries to find the mob's missing million dollars worth of Cuban Cigars. Only to find out that the FBI, cigar smugglers, and the Miami mob are all after the missing cigars. Penthouse Pet, Amy Lynn Baxter has a cameo in this film that's worth seeing, also there is a cigar sniffing ex-Customs dog named Bruno that cracked me up. This movie I would put in the same genre as Get Shorty and Midnight Run. Also if you are a fan of the Sopranos you should really enjoy this film. It's a funny and fast moving adventure comedy with alot of crazy charactors. Too many to mention.
I could see this movie becoming a cult classic."
