Johnny Dangerously

Film, Thrillers

Time Out says

Parody of '30s gangster movies in which Michael Keaton's meteoric rise to cleanest-cut hood in town (after turning to crime at the age of 12) is matched only by his incorruptible brother's rise to fame as a crime-busting DA, complete with inevitable courtroom confrontation between the two. Some delightfully unexpected visual gags and off-the-wall one-liners, along with the good-looking period settings and a wealth of minor characters, give the film its strength. It becomes a little predictable in the middle, but the pace picks up in time for the classic final shootout. Despite lapses, infectiously good-humoured.
