Plot & Details
A guy eager to leave some bad luck behind unexpectedly walks into a series of disasters in this comedy. Dino Condito (Carmine Famiglietti) has been persona non grata in his neighborhood in Queens ever since he flubbed a crucial play that cost his softball team the league championship against Hoboken. Months later, Dino is still the butt of jokes and he's losing all confidence in himself, so his cousin, Jubilene (Joseph Summa), decides to help him out. Cashing in his savings, Jubilene surprises Dino with a vacation in Cancun, Mexico, that he's convinced will lift his spirits. Unfortunately, a luggage mix-up at an airport in Mexico makes Dino and Jubilene the target of a handful of local gangsters and corrupt soldiers. Soon, the guys are being chased from one end of the country to the other and end up in all kinds of trouble before word gets back to their "crew" in Queens that their buddies need to be rescued.
