Synopsis by Mark Deming
In this made-for-cable comedy-drama, Moe (Tony Danza) is a gangster who has done quite well for himself as part of a crew dealing illegal automatic weapons. However, Moe, like anyone else, is looking for love, and meets Monica (Elizabeth Barondes), a gun collector who shares a home with her sister Beth (Amy Locane) and mother (Louise Fletcher), who is dying of cancer. Moe asks Monica out on a date and she agrees, if they can double with her sister. Moe fixes Beth up with his partner and longtime friend Franco (Rustam Branaman), and the two couples head out on the town after Moe and Franco duck out of a shootout in the midst of a deal gone sour. The date goes well and Beth and Franco hit it off especially well, but Beth has a fatal accident, and Moe and Franco must decide what to do with the body. Moe is about to learn that the tempers of the most formidable mafiosos are nothing compared to the rage of Monica. The Girl Gets Moe was also shown under the title Love To Kill.
