The sequel to Goodfellas.
Quote:
While not an official sequel, Herbert Ross’ My Blue Heaven is considered by some to be a follow-up to Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, even though it was actually released a month earlier. Starring Steve Martin, Rick Moranis, and Joan Cusack, My Blue Heaven is a more comedic interpretation of the life of gangster Henry Hill (played by Ray Liotta in Goodfellas) while in the Witness Protection Program.

Like Scorsese’s film, My Blue Heaven is based on Nicholas Pileggi’s book “Wiseguy,” which chronicles Hill’s life of crime. Interestingly, Pileggi wrote the Goodfellas screenplay and his late wife Nora Ephron was the screenwriter for My Blue Heaven. She was heavily involved in her husband’s book, having conducted many interviews with Hill and using her notes as reference for her script.
