Wow! You'd think by now Jim Abraham's material would be worn out and unoriginal. Think again. MAFIA! has got to be among one of the funniest parody films of the 1990s. This movie had me laughing for hours after I saw it, and even now when I think of some of the gags (especially the games in the casino) I can't help but to crack up. Also, the acting is BRILLIANT. Kudos to everyone who starred in the film! They all pulled off the ludicrously hilarious gags and delivered the most funny lines while keeping a straight face the entire time. I could never do that.
