When a scandal cost him his high-paying job on Madison Avenue, ad man Jack Schiavone thought he could start over as a mattress discounter in beachfront Brooklyn. But his dream of a nice, quiet new life running a mattress store is about to get whacked. There’s a mob war brewing, and 'Mr. Mattress' quickly finds himself in the middle of it. The bad economy is killing the rackets, the Russians want a piece of what’s left, and the local don’s gorgeous black-sheep daughter, a straight-arrow legal aid attorney, is making Jack think seriously about settling down and joining the Family.
With unforgettable characters - a slightly demented sandwich shop owner, a jealous lounge singer, and the world’s worst hit man (a.k.a. 'The Chiropractor') - this comedic crime thriller gives a whole new meaning to the term “going to the mattresses”.
