$9.99 Suggested Retail Price

Often called one of Woody Allen's best movies, "Bullets Over Broadway" is a star-studded tale of a writer in the days of the Speakeasies when mobsters had molls. The versatile John Cusack plays David Shayne, an aspiring playwright whose only way to get his show produced is to get the money from a mob boss named Cheech (Chazz Palminteri) that insists that his girlfriend (the bubly delightful Jennifer Tilly) play the lead. Naturally, she's totally inept as an actress, but the kicker here is that Cheech's suggestions for the play are turning out to be better than anything Shayne had come up with.

Rounding out the cast are veterans Dianne Weist, Jack Warden, Rob Reiner, Tracey Ullman, Harvey Firestein, and Mary-Louise Parker. It's a wild ride that's chock-full of fun.
