Storyline

Jack Fine, owner/manager of Fine Fashions of Brooklyn, it which solely produces women's dresses, has been having a difficult time the past year due to the company not keeping up with the changing fashions. Associated, Jack is in debt to the tune of $1.5 million to loan shark and gangster, Mr. Eddie, a hulking and flamboyant man who has a penchant for picking up and destroying things which are bothering him, Jack who now falls into that category. Instead of proverbially or literally breaking Jack's legs or worse, Mr. Eddie decides to take over Fine Fashions until the debt is paid, with Jack's son, Bobby Fine, an English Literature professor at upstate Chippenango State College, to manage the operations. Not only does this new career, which Bobby has no option but to accept, threaten the possibility of Bobby obtaining this year's tenure track position in the department, but Bobby at the helm of the fashion house threatens to ruin it completely as Bobby has no idea about fashion ...

Jack Warden utters one of the funniest lines ever!
27 July 2002 | by scoonmanSee all my reviews

This movie was funny for all the cat and mouse games going on between Richard Kiel and Ryan O'Neal, but the part I remember the most was Jack Warden. I will forever say that the funniest line in a movie I have ever heard was his line at the end of the movie. In the ending scene, Ryan O'Neal and the leading lady are riding in a gondola in Venice. In a seperate gondola, Warden and woman he has fallen for are riding. In the first boat, O'Neal and the woman are kissing, being romantic, as expected in such a romantic setting. Meanwhile in the next boat, Warden turns to his lady,and with bedroom eyes in this city of love, leans over and gently whispers to her..." How long have these streets been f**ked up?" . I roll every time I see that. ( pardon the language, but it is a quote.) That aside, it is still a relatively funny movie.
