'Daddy's Boys'

U.S.A., 1988, 85 minutes, 5:30 p.m. Producer Roger Corman's latest Depression-era gangster yarn is among the flimsiest and tattiest of the genre. "Daddy's" oldest boy decides to leave the family bank-robbing business, but family ties and two vengeful brothers bring him back into the fold. A film that gives "shoe-string budget" new meaning--so cheap the film makers use ammunition in only one sequence, and even recycle stale jokes.
