Avoid at all costs

"There really should be an option to give a movie zero stars, because this movie deserves it. There are literally no redeeming qualities. The film was supposedly made in 1992, but the picture quality looks more like 1972. The box cover shows Steve Buscemi, but he's only in it for about 30 seconds (and doesn't look anything like he does on the box cover). The box cover also shows Sandra Bullock, but she's only in it for about 3 minutes (and she, too, doesn't look anything like she does on the box cover). She did what has to be one of (if not the) worst sex scenes in film history. I would be extremely surprised if she wasn't embarrassed and ashamed at having done this film.
The film is extremely boring. I turned it off after 45 minutes and came back to it a few days later, forcing myself (against my better judgment) to watch it, partly out of some morbid curiosity, and partly because I had the notion that it had to get better. Unfortunately, it didn't. When it was over, I cursed myself for buying it simply because it claimed to star Sandra Bullock and Steve Buscemi.
Do yourself a favor and avoid this film at all costs. Even at 4.99, it's a waste of movie. I've never gotten rid of a CD or DVD after I purchased it, but I just may change with this purchase."
Stars Lorinz and Darrow Steal the Show in "Me and the Mob"

"James Lorinz and Tony Darrow, stars of the cult classic, "Street Trash," are back with their own brand of pseudo-vaudevillian comedy, in this quasi-comical tale of a failed writer's (Lorinz) relationship with his crooked Uncle (Darrow). Perhaps the only thing better than the comic banter between Lorinz and Darrow is a cameo by then un-known actress, Sandra Bullock, in a sex scene that has to be seen to be believed. Co-produced by Roy Frumkes, the same person credited (some say "responsible") for "Street Trash," the film has its moments (mostly supplied by its dynamite leads), but soon dissolves into a series of disjointed, painfully un-funny scenarios that will leave the viewer more than a bit bleary eyed. Perhaps the writers simply ran out of ideas, which is a shame, because the story itself is fairly inventive. Lorinz and Darrow have both seen better days, most notably Darrow, who has performed bit parts in the last four Woody Allen pictures. If only this kind of success could have been applied to the film itself."
The Mob should put out a hit on this movie

"Sandra Bullock and James Lorinz should both be ashamed to be seen in this movie.I couldn't believe what she did in her sex scene. She must have been really desperate for rent money to agree to do that on film. I will admit that there are a few funny scenes,but not enough to be worth buying the movie. It's filled with bad mobster dialogue and a plot that goes nowhere. Any Anthony Michael Hall fans that want to see this movie because he's listed as being in it, don't bother. You'll see his name in the credits and the top of his head for one split second (if you don't blink during that scene), that's it. Any part he had in it wound up on the cutting room floor (and I'll bet he's happy about that!), which is where the rest of it belongs."
