JANE AUSTEN'S MAFIA

SYNOPSIS:
A spoof on The Godfather….Anthony Cortino (Jay Mohr), the mob's man in a Las Vegas casino, turns the ignition on his Cadillac and is blown sky-high. Narrated by Cortino, this is the story of his father's youth in Sicily (Godfather II) and his own rise through the mob. Young Vincenzo Cortino (Jason Fuchs), grows up in the town of Salmonella (Home of Warm Mayonnaise). He immigrates to America (where the Ellis Island guards try to name him Armani Windbreaker after his jacket), and by the time he reaches godfather status he's played by the late Lloyd Bridges, who has fun kidding Marlon Brando's famous tomatoes-and-death scene. The don's older son, Joey (Billy Burke), is a short-tempered hothead, and power in the family evolves to Anthony, (based on the Al Pacino character). –
(With thanks to Roger Ebert for synopsis material.)
