HOW DID THIS MOVIE EVER FLOP?

Lets see we have a funny plot. A top notch cast with old giants, (Kirk Douglas, Don Ameche) An "A" list star, (Stallone) an "A" list director, (John Landis) a fine supporting cast, (Chazz Palmintari, Marisa Tomei, Tim Curry) and several television favorites (Kirkwood Smith, Ken Howard, Yvonne De Carlo,[Who actually belongs in the old giants list]) a ton of sight and word gags and a movie that flows smoothly and constantly makes you laugh and somehow it flops at the box office and isn't heard of? I don't get it. It is another absolute RIOT. All the actors I've named (and quite a few I haven't) just keep the whole thing roaring (Particularly Palmintari). How this movie remains ignored is beyond me. Even the basic plot of a gangster trying to go straight in a dishonest world works wonders! Why haven't you seen this move? Why don't you buy it now! You won't regret it!

I trired watching this movie years ago and got fed up with it quickly but I heard that if you stick with it, it does get really good. Maybe now that I'm on a Stallone kick I could see it again.
