It was New Years Eve in New York City, 1928. The champagne was cold, the dolls were red-hot and everyone who was anyone was there. Shimmy on down to the speakeasy run by jazz-baby Miss Mussou (Anita Morris), where earnest Lovey Lou (Jennifer Grey) and dishy Hortense Hathaway (Madonna) sing and dance on the hearts of two-timin pony player Regret (Matt Dillon) and hapless Feet Samuels (Randy Quaid), a lumbering oaf with a heart o gold whos sold it, along with the rest of his body, to a mad doctor determined to collect at midnight. And make an appearance at the home of feather-headed socialite Harriet MacKyle (Julie Hagerty), whose glittering New Years bash really takes flight with an untimely aviary assassination perpetrated by suave bootlegger Handsome Jack (Esai Morales). Add a handful of reluctant gangsters, an assortment of unflappable flappers and a philandering gambler, and youve got a comic celebration of the infamous night when the underworld met the upper crust – and the laughs were strictly on the house!
