  • A rather cleverly camouflaged retelling of the life and times of Jimmy Hoffa. Of course, all the names have been changed, but the story is obvious if you know the background. They even included a recreation of the Life magazine cover with Hoffa looking at you via the truck mirror and the bumper sticker on the truck tailgate at the end of the movie. Not quite up to the quality of the 1992 film with Jack Nicholson, but still worth the price of admission.
