Not-quite-by-the-book FBI agents Tozzi and Gibbons ( Bad Guys ; Bad Blood ) return here in another hilarious adventure. Trump-ish tycoon Russell Nashe is about to open Atlantic City's biggest casino. He owes $5 million to Sal Immordino, acting head of the Mistretta "family." Nashe hasn't got the money, and Sal must receive it before Mistretta's imminent release from jail. In desperation, Nashe and Sal fix a championship fight held in Nashe's casino. Tozzi, undercover as a Nashe bodyguard, is boffing Nashe's glamorous wife, Sydney--and so is Sal--but each is irritated by her efforts to quiz them about Nashe's plans. Hothead Tozzi is about to be yanked back to the office when he persuades older, sometimes wiser Gibbons to help. Gibbons jumps at the chance to escape his desk job and his longtime girlfriend's preoccupation with their upcoming wedding. Of course it's out of the frying pan and into the fire: the duo encounters various thugs, members of the fight "game," hangers-on and Sal's memorable sister, a nun involved with the Mob up to her wimple. The climax at the bout is lethal, funny and satisfying.
