Please ignore the bad reviews noted because the film lacked action and
a mobster mentality. The film's theme is noted as a DRAMA/COMEDY and
not as an CRIME/ACTION film. You negative reviewers please pay more
attention and next time first read on IMDb what a films theme and story
line are before jumping to conclusions. There is a vast difference
between what a viewer expects to see, and what a film intends to
I for one enjoyed the film greatly and I was especially enthralled with
Paul Sorvino's evolving emotions and heart warming scenes (and there
were many) between Paul Sorvino, Michael Rapaport and Renee Props.
Paul Sorvino plays Joe Scoleri (he his called "Mr. Joe" to the
neighborhood he has always lived in and is well respected) an ex-con
who has just been released from a 20 plus year prison term for
racketeering and attempted murder. Joe has one daughter Rita (played
warmly by actress Renee Props) who makes sure that her father
re-adjusts to life outside of the prison walls by spending lots of time
with him. The fact of the matter is that Joe received an early release
from prison due to his poor health and a very weak heart so his
daughter Rita wants to make sure her father eats healthy and avoids any
stress from his previous criminal way of life.
Mr. Joe's neighbour is a middle aged man named Bobby DiBianco (played
superbly by Michael Rapaport) who has a wife and a pre-teen daughter.
Bobby grew up in the house next door to Mr. Joe where Bobby's father
owned a local bakery in Queens, New York. Now Bobby's parents have
retired and moved to the sunny south of the state of Florida and handed
over the family home and their bakery business that they worked their
entire life to their son Bobby who shares his parents values, of
working hard and respecting his elders.
This is most likely where I differ from the other reviewers who were
expecting to see a mobster film. The story line is focused on how this
ex-convict with a bad heart Joe Scoleri, is being closely monitored by
his parole officer (played by Steven Bauer) named Ramirez weekly home
visits where he is humiliated into peeing into a bottle for a sample of
his urine to make sure he is drug free and where two FBI agents are
speaking to everyone in the neighborhood with a view to making an
imminent arrest when Mr. Joe makes his first foray into his past
Gradually we see how the influence of Joe's daughter Rita's chosen
lifestyle and live-in companion, and Joe's neighbor who was a young man
when Joe was first imprisoned affect his own mindset of past
generations of the Italian values and most importantly, that respect
and understanding are earned and not given for past reputations.
To some the film's ending may seem abrupt and leaving the viewer
wanting more, but to me, it was a well written ending and deserving of
a dramatic film with heart and lessons learned in real life situations.
My only disappointment with the film was that one of my all time
favorite actors, Chazz Palminteri, only had a cameo appearance playing
Joe Scoleris' long time lawyer and friend who advises Joe that the
world has changed and he has to get over his past way of life and enjoy
the little time he has left (with his adult daughter Rita) on this
planet due to his poor health.
It is a good drama and Paul Sorvino's acting is always worth watching.
This film is no exception. I give the film an 8 out of 10 rating.
