Goodfellas Gets an Honest Trailer

Here's an Honest Trailer for the 1990 movie Goodfellas. Why did Screen Junkiesreview a 30-year-old movie? They may have been inspired by the death of star Ray Liotta just a couple of weeks ago, or possibly the recent celebration of Billy Batts Day. At any rate, there's still plenty to say about Martin Scorsese's mob film. Goodfellas offers lots of blood, lots of crime, lots of laughs, and lots of F-bombs.
They reference My Blue Heaven at the end of this video. The reason the movies are so similar is because My Blue Heaven was written by Nora Ephron, who was married to Nicholas Pileggi, the author of Wiseguy, the Henry Hill biography that Goodfellas is based on. The comedy premiered a month before Goodfellas.
