"Now what did I tell all you People?"
"Around here you're Johnny Kelly, a law abiding nightclub owner. Not the notorious gangster Johnny Dangerously".
As the pope soon explains, everybody knows! Johnny tries to lead a normal life with girlfriend Lil (Henner), but with his mom in constant need of medical attention and sickos like fellow gangster Danny Vermin (Piscapo) after his brother, he needs the life of crime. A Funny, Funny movie!
