Movie Review: The Godfather (1972)

The mob family celebrate Connie’s wedding as prodigal son Michael shows up with his girlfriend Kay. Don Vito mumbles, Sonny yells, Michael broods, Kay is dumb, Connie has a very pretty wedding dress, Fredo is useless and overlooked and Tom Hagen keeps the peace. Then a mob war erupts.

Michael embraces the life, gets married, she dies and he returns to Kay. Sonny beats down Connie’s horrible husband and Fredo is overlooked as Tom Hagen is closer to his father and brothers than he is.

Various people die and Michael becomes inhumanly cold and cruel. This was okay. But how did the movie guy not wake up when that thing was left in his bed? Why was Tom Hagen always so calm?

Best Line:
Leave the gun, take the cannoli.”
