Paul and Erin review two films about immature gangsters with wacky nicknames. First: BUGSY, Barry Levinson's 1991 biopic starring Warren Beatty as gangster-slash-cockeyed visionary Bugsy Siegel, and Annette Bening as his mistress and eventual business manager; then, BUGSY MALONE, Alan Parker's offbeat 1976 musical gangster spoof, in which Scott Baio and Jodie Foster head up an all-child cast to tell the story of a boxing promoter who winds up in the middle of a turf war between two rival gangs. The Flamingo Hotel or Fat Sam's Grand Slam: which will prevail?
Plus: our quick takes on INHERENT VICE, SEVENTH SON, JUPITER ASCENDING, A GIRL WALKS HOME ALONE AT NIGHT, MILIUS, PADDINGTON, and IN HER PLACE.
