Wrong. And getting colder in a sense. (Why so serious?) (Scarface* has 293 pkw's. You'd need a lot of cocaine to sort through all of those.)

told in flashback
organized crime
revenge
escape from jail
last rites

brother brother relationship
attempted murder
corrupt district attorney

movie premiere
reference to james cagney
bull

character name in title
cigarette case
rise to power

kicked in the balls
newspaper boy
irish woman

(of 71 pkw's)

*Assuming you mean the 1983 version.

Yep. The other one, though can also just be called Scarface, has the full title of Scarface - The Shame of a Nation.

Anyhoo, is it Johnny Dangerously?

Yes. (Did you know his last name is an adverb?)

[Also, was it kicked in the balls which tipped you off?]

Again, I'm certain it's not it, but I'm proud of myself for even being able to think of movies that match a couple of keywords, so imma guess Lost in Translation.

(I mean, maybe that movie had a 12 year old orangutan, but not that I remember.)

I'm afraid it does. Surprisingly, number of words can actually make things harder. Messes with your head, man.

So, no.

I have a hard time seeing Star Wars as anti-war. You ever see that war? IT WAS GREAT!

The Last Starfighter?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure Johnny's got it. Everything looks to be a good fit (well, for the book, anyway; I've never seen the movie), and "child prodigy" brought it immediately to mind for me.
