The Guys: Three Wise-Guys
The Problem: Dead vs. Alive - there just aren't enough dead bodies to keep the Mob-owned funeral parlor alive
The Solution: Create Inventory!
Academy Award nominated Danny Aiello stars as Frank Tramontana, a hearse driver who unwittingly gets drawn into a scheme his co-workers have concocted for a series of unfortunate "accidents" designed to clean up the neighborhood and fill their funeral parlor with much needed customers. As the body count rises, they stumble and bumble their way through the sidesplitting antics of this new business plan strewn with familiar faces like Jon Polito (American Gangster) and Frank Vincent (Phil Leotardo "The Sopranos"). But things get a bit complicated and problems are further exacerbated when Frank's provocative ex-wife (Academy Award nominated Leslie Ann Warren) reappears to give Frank a dose of reality.
