Johnny Dangerously1984

Director: Amy Heckerling
Stars: Michael Keaton, Joe Piscopo, Marilu Henner, Maureen Stapleton, Peter Boyle
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Rating: PG-13 (Parental Guidance Suggested)
Runtime: 90 minutes

This dispensable 1984 comedy is a mostly humorless parody of '30s gangster movies, the kind of thing that might work reasonably well in a five-minute sketch on Saturday Night Live but which nearly beats a viewer to death over the course of a feature. Michael Keaton and Joe Piscopo play rival Mafia bosses, but once the novelty of that is introduced, it's already old. There's plenty of sustained effort from the rest of the cast (Marilu Henner, Danny DeVito, Maureen Stapleton), with Griffin Dunne getting special points. Amy Heckerling (Fast Times at Ridgemont High) directs as if this were indeed on television. --Tom Keogh
