Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Breezy, sleazy, and sometimes-intense, 'Rob the Mob' depicts a very specific sliver of time in New York history, a time overrun by crack, graffiti, and omnipresent organized crime.

NY Post Full Review
Good The always distinctive Raymond De Felitta offers a hilarious mob comedy with virtually no violence, though it's based on a tabloid-ready true story that did not end at all happily.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
New York City, 1991. Small-time crooks TOMMY (Pitt) and ROSIE (Arianda) have two things in common: a crazy-passionate love for one another and-after they're caught robbing a florist on Valentine's Day-prison records. Trying to go straight, Rosie lands a job at a debt-collection agency and persuades Tommy to join her. But soon Tommy is skipping his shifts to do something much more interesting-attend the landmark trial of Gambino-family boss John Gotti, where Mafia hit man Sammy "The Bull" Gravano provides graphic testimony that could finally bring down the flamboyant mob kingpin.

Tommy's fascination with the mob is deeply personal; when he was a boy, he saw his father suffer a brutal beating at the hands of local gangsters. So when he hears Sammy name a Mafia-owned social club where no guns are permitted, he has an idea: Why not rob the joint? And so begins a series of Bonnie-and-Clyde-style stickups of mob hangouts around the city, with Tommy wielding an Uzi and Rosie driving the beat-up getaway car. The brazen daylight raids net enough cash for the lovers to move in together, taking their fiery romance to the next level. They also draw the attention of the FBI and veteran mob reporter JERRY CARDOZO (Romano), who splashes their unlikely story across the front page of the paper. But while the attacks enrage the mob, reclusive crime-family head BIG AL FIORELLO (Garcia) orders his men only to scare the couple. After all, he says, eagles don't kill flies.

It's a decision Big Al will come to regret. During one of their heists, Tommy and Rosie stumble upon a Mafia secret so closely guarded that rank-and-file mobsters don't even know of its existence. To the Feds, it's the smoking gun they've been looking for-a key to dismantling New York's already-faltering crime syndicate once and for all. To Big Al, it's the high cost of his earlier leniency-a mistake he quickly moves to correct. For Tommy and Rosie, caught between the law and a mob contract, the future depends on who gets to them first.
