Married to the Mob (1988)
Married to the Mob (Movie)
August 19, 1988
An FBI agent, Mike Downey, is trying to infiltrate a mafia family. He sees a chance when Angela de Marco tries to leave the criminal lifestyle after her gangster husband, Frank de Marco, is murdered.
The story is complicated by the mafia boss, Tony "The Tiger" Russo, who is romantically pursuing Angela but was also the person who killed her husband Frank over a dalliance with his mistress. The plot is further complicated by the mobster's jealous wife, Connie Russo, and her suspicions about her husband. Further complication evolves with Mike Downey's own romantic interest in Angela. Later an attempted assassination against Tony takes places at a "Burger World" drive-through.
Downey eventually goes out with Angela, though Tony eventually finds out about the FBI sting (and Downey's cover). It all comes to a head in Miami with everybody gathered in the same room.
