Wise Guys

1986 / 100min / 35mm

DIRECTOR: BRIAN DE PALMA

CAST: DANNY DEVITO, JOE PISCOPO, HARVEY KEITEL

SCREENPLAY - GEORGE GALLO, NORMAN STEINBERG

And now for something completely different. De Palma casts Danny DeVito and SNL headliner Joe Piscopo as Harry and Moe, dim-bulb New Jersey stooges who steal a Cadillac and head for Vegas after losing a bundle of mob money at the racetrack. The most straightforwardly comic De Palma film, Wise Guys recalls the hijinks of the director’s early career, with an added sheen of big-studio slapstick. The supporting cast is chockablock with character-actor heavyweights—Dan Hedaya, Harvey Keitel, Ray Sharkey, Patti LuPone, and WWF’s “Captain” Lou Albano. “No, thank you, Mr. Acavano!”
