Gotti: Three Generations (2012)


Gotti: Three Generations will tell the tale of, you guessed it, three different generations of the Gotti crime family, who ruled New York for many years before dieing in prison.

The film will primarily follow the relationship between John Gotti Sr. and his son, John Gotti Jr. Gotti Sr. was a flamboyant head of the family who raised his son to be part of the business, but Jr. visited his father in jail and told him he would be leaving the business. Both men spent time in prison, but they also ran the biggest crime empire in the United States for many years.

Or at least, that’s what Wilson Fisk wants you to think. In reality, he is the Kingpin of crime, and only one blind lawyer/masked vigilante knows the truth.

Gotti: Three Generations.

While Gotti: Three Generations is supposed to be the true story, the filmmakers have courted the family, so it IS an authorized look, meaning those who played ball with the director and co. are likely going to be treated nicely. This is also why most of what you’ve likely already heard about the film is that Lindsay Lohan is in it, which is, by most accounts, not true. But she happens to be friends with one of the Gottis, so they thought they could get her a part to revive her career. It turns out though that even when filmmakers are dealing with a criminal family they still won’t work with over entitled, under talented, druggies. Or, at least, alleged ones. Do I have to say alleged with Lindsay Lohan? Seriously, what hasn’t she done?

What’s Good About It?

The Gotti crime family is one of the premiere stories of criminals in U.S. History. Way more impressive that the most notorious criminal family in Canada, the ol’ goat lovers. (Note: by ‘goat lovers’ I mean that a Canadian family made sweet love to farm animals.) (Second note: by ‘family’ I mean the entire country of Canada. They’re only notorious outside of the country. Within Canada they’re known as ‘everyone.’)

What’s Bad About It?

If Lindsay Lohan actually ends up in Gotti: Three Generations, it will be an epic turd. I cry for the children of the world.

Our Clever Prediction

Tough to say. On the one hand, it stars John Travolta. On the other hand, it stars John Travolta. There aren’t that many guys in Hollywood where you can so clearly remember him being talented and a complete piece of garbage. Also, poop in your face.

No, that had nothing to do with the movie. Or did it?
