Louis & Frank Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Alexandre Rockwell wrote and directed this follow-up to his award-winning Alexandre Rockwell (1992) with a spin-off of two characters from his earlier success, singing landlords Louis Di Buffoni (Steven Randazzo) and Frank (Francesco Messina). Louis now has a family and a Queens removals business, while his cousin Frank has been training as a beautician in Sicily. Back in Queens, Frank suggests they return to professional singing. Billed as the Bitchin' Di Buffonis, they sign with unsuccessful talent manager Lenny Star Springer (Tony Curtis), who once managed a singing parrot that died. After debuting at a New Jersey bowling alley, they finally get a NYC booking -- but then learn they have to perform in drag. Steve Buscemi makes an uncredited appearance in drag. With a dream sequence in black-and-white, this comedy was shown at the 1998 Rotterdam Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi
