Trouble in paradaise, when transplants hit Florida.
reviewed Welcome to Paradise on
Big Al, an inept minor-league Mafioso who's boss of a New York fish market, drives to Key West. He has a rival who'd like to take over the market and puts out a contract on said mobster. That's not hard when both the target and an innocent tourist have the same vanity plate, even though one's a short guy with a big dog and the other's a big guy with a small dog. But by the time the salesman's been nearly done in by a ton of rancid calamari and has narrowly escaped death by a stuffed sailfish, there's another link between the two Al's, and therein lies the tale. That link is a beautiful woman named Katy Sansone.
