Me and the Mob

Genre: Comedy, Mystery and Thriller; Starring: James Lorinz, Tony Darrow; MPAA Rating: R

In their respective roles as an original slacker and an old-fashioned Mob boss in 1987’s criminally underseen Street Trash, Lorinz and Darrow stole an over-the-top film by going way over the top with their brilliantly funny, caustic bickering. Now Me and the Mob reunites the two for a virtual re-creation of their finest moments, with Lorinz as a down-and-out writer who goes to work for his wiseguy uncle. This small film was able to wrangle a short theatrical release out of Sandra Bullock’s fun cameo as the writer’s girlfriend, but it’s Lorinz’s mix of James Dean and Jim Carrey that makes this uneven comedy worth a look.
