Jane Austen’s Mafia! (1998)

(On VHS, August 2000) Mob-film parody that’s better than some of its contemporaries, but not by much. Succeeds mostly on the strengths of the Casino rip-off scenes. (“Fifty-Four Pickup”, “Guess a Number”, “Give us your money” games…) There are occasional laughs here and there. Christina Applegate makes a great president. At least we’re spared the toilet humor, but the rest is hit-and-miss.
