Stephen (Greg Lauren) and Danny (Christopher Gartin) are a Manhattan couple who have it all - a fabulous house, good friends, lots of money - and most important, they have each other. Then, one day, a surprise visit from Stephen's Midwestern parents threatens to blow the boys' big secret. The secret? Not that Stephen and Danny are gay - Stephen's parents know all about that. What they don't know is that their son and his boyfriend are hit men for the Mafia - the powerful mob kingpin, Victor Patrizzi (Tony Lo Bianco)!
For years, Stephen has been telling his parents that he and Danny run a successful catering business. To make matters worse, Stephen's meddlesome Mom now asks him to throw a birthday banquet for his FBI-agent Dad and hilarious complications ensue.
Meanwhile, trouble is brewing in the Patrizzi household. Don Patrrizzi's beautiful daughter brings home her new non-Italian fiance, who has a few secrets in his own family. And Victor's sons are more interested in cooking and decorating for the party than they are in taking care of the Family business.
Petulant drag queens and invading right-wing fanatics add to the fun, until our two lovable 'wise guys' are forced to show their true vocations as they save the day.
The film was produced by Linda Moran (award- winning producer of L.I.E.) and directed by Kristen Coury in her feature-film debut.
