Time Out says

Grant's the dapper but reluctant English gent thrown in a flap when the discreet world of his NY auction house is spliced with the life of the Mafia goon. Only when he proposes to girlfriend Tripplehorn does he discover that daddy (Caan) is a leading local mobster who, filled with family pride, now wants a piece of his prospective son-in-law. Thus Grant has to suffer dodgy paintings on his show floor, hapless Italian pronunciation practice, and the prospect of losing his bride before he's even won her. Comedy mobsters: don'tchaluv'em? The cartoon accents, the Old World family ties, the hackneyed juxtaposition of homeliness and casual violence, the impenetrable logic of their own codes and their feckless disregard for anyone else's. Fahgedaboudit.
