** In addition to his prolific criminal activities, Tony is also the kind of asshole who murders a man and then tries to hit on the grieving widow at the wake immediately after his funeral. He also eggs on a fight between his own son and Angela's while no one's watching, only to suddenly switch to breaking it up when Angela shows up.

** Connie is also a bit of an asshole, being both an over-bearing and obnoxious mob wife and the kind of person who blames the woman her husband is leching over rather than her husband for being a lech.

** And equally unfortunately, it turns out that Mike knows exactly what to say to make sure that Connie will ''never'' give Tony a chance to explain himself:
-->'''Connie:''' What the hell are you doin' here, dorkface?\\
'''Mike:''' I came here to tell your husband to keep his hands offa my woman!\\
''[OhCrap reaction from Tony]''



-->'''Tony:''' Connie... honey... I'm gonna change.\\

to:

-->'''Tony:''' Connie... honey... I'm I-I'm gonna change.\\


Added DiffLines:

* OhCrap: Tony's frantically trying to explain the situation all throughout the climax when Connie's waving a gun around, but it's when she fires off a shot that's close enough to rip a hole in his suit jacket that he seems to genuinely realise to his terror that ''she's not messing about''.


Added DiffLines:

* ShutUpHannibal: After Connie threatens Angela in the supermarket over Tony, Angela eventually snaps and yells that Connie "should keep him on a leash!" before storming off. Connie is clearly shaken by the reminder of her husband's frequent infidelity and that, try as she might, she can't blame it on Angela.

* CryingWolf: Ironically, when Connie finally catches Tony in the bridal suite of a fancy hotel with Angela, Tony has learned that Angela's trying to set him up and is actually planning to kill her. But given all his leching after her for the whole movie and his playing around well before that, he's got a heck of a job trying to convince Connie of that...

** Played with; by the end, Tony is reduced to panicked, flustered begging... but not by the reveal that the FBI are trying to trap him, but by his heartbroken wife pointing a gun [[GroinAttack at a very sensitive place indeed]].

Angela de Marco (Michelle Pfeiffer) is sick of being a [[TheMafia mafia]] wife; she's sick of [[FellOffTheBackOfATruck everything she owns being "hot,"]] she's sick of having to be friends with the other mobsters' wives, and she's sick of her misogynistic douche-bag of a husband, Frank (Alec Baldwin). Then Frank is bumped off, and suddenly his boss, Tony "The Tiger" Russo (Dean Stockwell) wants to get in her pants. And so, she takes her son and moves to the city, but Tony won't leave her alone, and neither will his psychotic wife. She does meet a nice guy named Mike (Matthew Modine), but he turns out to be working for the [[FBIAgent FBI]], who think she had something to do with her husband's death.

** Neither can Frank. It ends up costing him his life, as his affair is with Tony's mistress.

-->'''[[FBIAgent Regional Director Franklin]]''': Oh, there's a big difference, Mrs. de Marco. The mob is run by murdering, thieving, lying, cheating psychopaths. We work for the [[RonaldReagan President of the United States of America]].

* ScyllaAndCharybdis: After her husband's death, poor Angela just wants to cut her ties with the mob life entirely and start again, but is trapped between Tony constantly tracking her down and trying to hit on her, Connie being convinced that Angela is leading her husband on and trying to get her for it, and the FBI being convinced that she's in cahoots with Tony and trying to trap her into turning state's evidence for them.
