How bad is it? Unfunny comedy/musical with pathetic song lyrics.
Should you see it? No.
Joe Piscopo came out of retirement to star in this film about a theater owner who owes money to the mob and tries to put on a musical to make the needed money. The mob boss insists on casting his debtors: riff-raff or worse. Paul Sorvino, Michael Pare' and Eddie Griffin have roles. There's jokes about electroconvulsive therapy, crack addiction, transsexuals and transvestites - and that bad taste could be funny, but the film tries to be heart-warming. The first half, about trying to put the show together, is better than the second, which is the show; there are some good voices and the music and arrangement are fine, but the songs themselves have such terrible lyrics that one wonders how much of it was intentional.
