A New York DJ winds up protecting the gorgeous daughter of a Mafia kingpin in this edgy romantic comedy. After he saves the life of a mob boss (Chazz Palminteri), DJ Darrell (Usher Raymond) is rewarded with a job guarding the don's daughter, Dolly (Emmanuelle Chriqui).

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this movie includes shootings, beatings, and references to other forms of "mob violence" (one character says his car was blown up). A body appears in a car trunk. The movie features reductive stereotypes: ignorant Italian gangsters; a white boy who acts "hip-hop"; a sexually aggressive black woman; a precocious child (who uses sexual slang); bling-blingy cigar-smoking buddies for the DJ; and a "Big Mama." Characters drink and smoke; women at the dance club wear revealing clothing and dance provocatively.

Sexual Content

Girls in a nightclub dress and dance provocatively; visual and verbal jokes (alluding to fellatio, "," "" [male genitalia], " the nasty"); cleavage/butt shots in a yoga class; passionate kissing and groping; a soft-lit sex scene featuring closeups of hands and faces; several suggestive song lyrics (for example, "").


Conventional mob violence (shootings, beat-downs, a flashing switchblade, tossing a beaten victim from a slowly moving car, a body in a car trunk, then visible in a coffin at the wake).


Sexual references (e.g., "-style," " the nasty"), cursing (including f-word and s-word), plus an Italian derogatory term for "," "" (short for "," which translates to "").

Social Behavior

Mobsters are dumb or self-delusional; characters lie and betray one another.
