Lionsgate Home Entertainment released the comedy The Last Godfather to DVD Aug. 9, a spoof film about the mafia from Korean comedic superstar Hyung Rae Shim, who wrote, directed and stars in the film which takes place in America and also features American actors such as Harvey Keitel and Jason Mewes, among others.
The Mafia meets its match with one of the most popular Korean comedic superstars, Hyung Rae Shim (Dragon Wars: D-War), who comes to America as writer, director and star of the Mafia-spoof film and international box office hit. Academy Award nominee Harvey Keitel (Best Actor in a Supporting Role, Bugsy, 1991) headlines the cast as the Don who foolishly tries to prepare his dim-witted son, played by Shim, to be his successor. Also starring Jason Mewes (Clerks) and Michael Rispoli (Kick-Ass), this laugh-out loud comedy is sure to offer audiences something they can’t refuse.
Mob boss Don Carini (Keitel) is retiring from the Mafia business – but when he gathers the family to announce his heir, the Don surprises everyone by anointing his goofy grownup love child, Younggu (Shim), as the next godfather. With everyone gunning for the job – and his father pressuring him to succeed – will Younggu overcome his enemies and rise to become the head of the fami-lee before he winds up snoring with the fishes?
The theatrical lease in 2010 was with CJ Entertainment Inc. The film is Rated PG-13 for brief sexual humor. The Lionsgate debuts is available on DVD, Digital Download and On Demand.
