American Cousins Film Poster


Culture-clash British comedy in which two American mafiosi, Gino (Danny Nucci) and Settimo (Dan Hedaya) take refuge in the Glasgow cafe belonging to their Scottish/Italian cousin Roberto. To repay Roberto's hospitality, they employ their mafia tactics to see off a debt collector who has his eye on Roberto's property, causing Roberto to realise that they are not the PR consultants he thought they were. Meanwhile, the America cousins are also having to adjust their opinions of Roberto, who they thought was a tough guy: it turns out he likes nothing better than a bit of stamp collecting, and has set his heart on a young waitress in his cafe, Alice (Shirley Henderson).

Contains strong language and moderate violence.
