Bobby (Dreyfus) is a career wise guy whose crew is a group of guys he's known since childhood. Bats (Reynolds), The Brick (Hedaya) and The Mouth (Cassell) each have their own quirks and specialty they bring to the crew. After explaining in voice over the origins of the group, Bobby brings us to present day Miami, where the New Jersey crew is rotting on the balcony of a two-bit retirement hotel. Although older, the men still are fairly much the same and hating "retirement." There's nothing much left to live for until the rent goes up, and then they hatch a scheme to artificially get the rent lower -- they get a dead John Doe from the morgue where The Brick now works and pump the cadaver full of lead.

Voila, the fear over the possibility of organized crime in the area lowers the rent. With the success of that caper, the crew is back in the wise guy business, feeling young again, and soon being asked to bump off a stripper's stepmother. Blackmailed actually, because it turns out Mouth talks too much postccoitus (he's been seeing the stripper -- played to the tee by Jennifer Tilly) including about this incident. When it's discovered the John Doe is the father of a notorious drug cartel head, they have to keep her quiet, and try to kill her stepmother.
