Mobbed Up
aka Boardwalk Nights
Comedy Feature

Log Line:
Financial straits force brother and sister owners of a beach side ice cream shop to rent their back room to the local Mafia for a gambling parlor.

Brief Synopsis
Jeanie promised her dying father she would go to Princeton University in the fall and her brother Ethan promised to run the family ice cream shop at the Jersey Shore. When the insurance check comes up short, Ethan brokers a deal with Frank and Dean, two equally desperate Philadelphia mobsters. In exchange for a cut of the profits, the mobsters get to run a gambling parlor out of the ice cream shop's back room for the summer.

The Mob crew arrives and quickly turns a quiet family business into a disorderly mobster haven. A nosey neighbor, missing Mob cash and an elusive seagull add to the fun.

While Ethan plans his future as a wiseguy, Jeanie becomes friendly with a hit man and soon has to confront truths about her future and her father's past.

With a strong female protagonist and a side-splitting ensemble, Mobbed Up is not your typical gangster flick.

Who knew the Mob could be such a pain in the ass?
