Anthony Santini just can't seem to get the mob thing right. The nephew of new Yorl's top mafia boss, he tries to fit in as a 'wise guy,' but it's obvious to Uncle Tony that Anthony isn't cut out for the job. But Tony gave his word to his brother that he'd look after the boy, and a promise is a promise. When Tony discovers one of his men has been scammed by a Russian mail order bride named Nina, he decides to send his troublesome nephew to Russia to bring back the girl and the money. Anthony partners with Ivan, the equally inept son of Russia's top mob boss, and together they set out for Moscow. There they surprise everyone by surviving a crazy romp through the Russian underworld. The New York mob and Moscow mob may be pulling the strings, but it's the two not-so-wise guys caught in the middle that come out on top.
