Synopsis by Mark Deming
Joey Travolta and Jeff Conaway star in this black comedy about Geno, a talentless lounge singer whose career is going nowhere. A low-level mafioso makes Geno an offer -- he'll front him some much-needed cash in exchange for killing a bookie who owes him money. Geno isn't a murderer by nature but takes the assignment, only to lose his nerve once he arrives at the bookie's home. The bookie finds the whole situation very amusing, until he starts playing with Geno's gun -- and accidentally kills himself. So can Geno take credit for the killing without the police getting wind of all this?
