Gang that Couldn’t Shoot Straight, The

Mob comedy supposedly based on the life of a real mafia boss, though to what extent we’ve no idea as it quickly turns into one brush-daft set piece after another. Old school mafia don Lionel ‘This is my boss, Mrs H. She’s goigeous!’ Stander feuds with young upstart Jerry ‘Detective Lennie Briscoe’ Orbach, whose sister develops a crush on a cycling vicar with a penchant for petty crime (Robert De Niro). Herve ‘De Plane!’ Villechaize takes a lion into a car wash. Best of all, there’s a cartoon title sequence. All would appear to be right with the world.
