Frankie and Johnny (1991)

Synopsis: Short-order chef woos world-weary waitress.

Blurb From the VHS Jacket: “Pacino is an outgoing ex-con who’s hired as the new short-order cook. He’s head-over-heels crazy for Frankie. But to Frankie, they’re as different as scrambled and hard-boiled. What can he mean when he says, ‘we were a couple before we ever met’?”

What Did I Learn?: Stalking a woman relentlessly until she agrees to see you again works like a charm every time.

You Might Like This Movie If: You want to see the on-screen chemistry between Michelle Pfeiffer and Al Pacino without watching “Scarface.”

Really?: Johnny gets out of jail and lands both a job and a hot girlfriend soon afterwards. Some guys have all the luck.

Rating: It’s a charming little movie, but it drags in places, and the on-again-off-again nature of the relationship gets a bit tedious. 6.5/10 stars.
