Synopsis/Details: 

This is the story of Anthony, the handsome and unemployed son of Vinnie, a middle-level New Jersey mobster and Jenny, the forty-something daughter of the town’s mayor. With the intercession of Jenny, who wants to get married and have a child before reaching menopause, the mayor offers him a job in the school where Jenny teaches. But the plan strays when Vinnie promises Turi, a Mafia boss in Sicily, that Anthony would teach English to his naïve, young daughter Concie. But, when Concie and her bodyguard Toto arrive in New Jersey, Anthony and Jenny realize that she is not the bashful, innocent young woman described by her father but a foxy Italian beauty. This does not go well with Jenny who sees Concie as a formidable rival. And Jenny is right on target because Anthony immediately falls into the sexual trap set by the sexy Italian. Not surprisingly, Jenny is not herself immune to sexual attractions. Mesmerized by Toto’s virility and hoping to get pregnant, she has a wild affair with him. While all this is going on, the two unaware families are moving ahead planning their children’s nuptials. But, during a wild, surprising wedding ceremony, Jenny and Anthony decide not to marry each other. In the last scenes, while Jenny marries Toto, Anthony and Concie leave New Jersey to get married in Mexico City.
