Meg (Sorvino), a former medical school student, is desperate to escape from a tragic past. Moving back to her hometown and bluffing her way into a job as a waitress in a 'family-run' Italian restaurant, Meg strikes up what appears to be an unshakeable bond with her two fellow waitresses, Raychel (Carey) and Kate (Walters). But when Meg unwittingly gets involved with the Mafia due to a string of circumstances beyond her control, all three women discover that survival is going to depend on much more than just service with a smile!

 Wow.

I'm very surprised by this film. What a twist. It's become one of my new favourite.

Carey's acting isn't as good as in Glitter but she's still fun. You get really involved with the characters and it's just incredible. This is a must have for any Carey fan or Thriller fan.

Rather anaemic mob drama with Sorvino as a shy girl who takes a job in a restaurant and is drawn in to some of the shady characters to frequent it. The first hour takes its time establishing her situation and building up her relationship with her co-workers, mousy Hardin and f-bomb dropping Carey. And then it gets violent. And then it decides to hasten its way to a very rushed conclusion. Sorvino is probably its best asset but nothing these girls do actually constitutes being called wise.

 Surprising fun!

Check this film out!
It's fun, unoffensive, entertainment. Decent directing, and a good group of actors - yes, that includes Mariah! She works the bronx/mafia family accent - worked for me anyway! Mira is watchable as always, and Melora takes on a fun character that could have been very one-dimensional in someone else's hand's.
This film allows Mariah to be forgiven for Glitter ... but I kinda found that so bad it was good, so who am I to talk?!
