By Megan Lehmann

Chicago Tribune

The younger Provenzano, while under indictment for racketeering and tax evasion, made his contribution to our mob lesson by writing, directing and starring in This Thing of Ours, another installment in the long line of bada-bings and fuggetabouits.

TV Guide

By Maitland McDonagh
Features generally crisp dialogue, solid performances by a mix of newcomers and familiar character actors, and Provenzano's direction is strikingly accomplished.

A decently crafted, standard Mafia blood bath with a few new wrinkles and an aura of authenticity.
