The review of this Movie prepared by Brandon Swenson

Vinnie Antonelli is an inner city mobster who goes under a Witness Protection Program after turning in state evidence. He must testify against mafia men or else spend some time in prison. Anotnelli is sent to a wholesome suburbia town in California and now in hands of Barney Coopersmith, a high-strung FBI agent that deals with Vinnie shenanigans (getting into some conflict with local authorities) all the while trying to keep him on a low profile. Meanwhile state district attorney Hannah Stubbs, who is a divorcee and a mother about had enough of the mobster's careless acts. Stubbs is sure to put Vinnie where he belongs if Agent Coopersmith does not set things straight with the light-hearted Vinnie. While under protection and his obvious boredom in the small town, Vinnie shows Coopersmith how to loosen up a bit, even playing cupid. Hooking up the uptight agent with rigid Stubbs as things turn to love for the two after dancing the merengue.
