A Little About Me…

Okay, so if you don’t know me…I’m all about helping people save money through discounts, coupons and even finding freebies. I also like to help businesses owners, executives and restaurant managers save money through discounted advertising packages my company has to offer. In addition to liking the New York Yankees and some Florida State football, I also enjoy watching crime-based movies based from the New York City area, where I’m originally from. While I never met him, I always liked John Gotti. We were both born in the Bronx. Enough said! 🙂 If you like crime-based movies and John Gotti, then you’ll like this freebie.

FREE Movie Alert…

Okay, warning…sometimes I stretch the “freebies” term just a bit but within reason and to benefit you. Trust me, it will save you money. 🙂 I was viewing some videos on youtube when I came across the full movie “Gotti!” It was the 1996 version — sometime in 2018 another version made it to the movies staring John Travolta. I watched the whole movie and admit I watched it again one night later in the week. Then I thought I have to share this with you because not only is it a great movie (in my opinion), it also is a freebie. My recommendation to you is instead of renting a movie the next time you want some entertainment, set aside two


hours so you can watch this one evening or weekend and enjoy the entertainment of watching this great movie from your home; or even on your cell phone or tech device of choice.

What You Can Do…

Just scroll to the bottom of this page and play the video if you want to skip right over to the movie.

Suggestion – When You Watch This Movie… 

For the first five minutes and change, the screen will be faded to black with intent. If it’s hard to watch, just listen. It will set-up the introduction along with the start of the movie for you. Also, there definitely is some suitable language involved. It’s not anything I’m concerned with on my end other than being respectful to any of you who may have a distain for bad language. Consider that before watching Gotti.

Armand Assante is a great actor and has a great performance in this movie. Again, going with the premise I like John Gotti, I also loved the HBO series The Soprano’s when they were on TV from which first aired in 1999. Primarily because it was a great series and something I could watch on a Sunday night before another start to another work week. The other reason why I liked The Soprano’s is because it was based in Northern New Jersey. While residing in New York, I used to spend some “play time” over there…then later on relocating to Northern New Jersey at the same time frame. So watching The Soprano’s was an obvious choice where I could view some great movie scenes along with great scenery from my local area. It was just very relatable. The topper would be to go into the work office on a Monday morning and lots of us would congregate around our respective offices and rehash the locations we saw in the background. The Bada-Bing was about 2 miles away from my home.  

There are four actors from The Soprano’s in this movie so if you like The Soprano’s and you enjoy crime-based movies, you’ll enjoy this movie.

  • Frank Vincent who performs as “Di B” in Gotti, played the role of Phil Leotardo in The Soprano’s
  • Dominic Chianese who performs as “Joe Armone” in Gotti, played the role of Uncle Junior in The Soprano’s
  • Vincent Pastore who performs as “Angelo Ruggiero” in Gotti, played the role of Uncle P The Soprano’s
  • Tony Sirocco who performs as “Joe Dimiglia” in Gotti, played the role of Paulie in The Soprano’s

Last Thoughts…

Enjoy the movie and think of me when it comes to helping you save money…along with introducing you to watching Gotti! 🙂

    Ahh, interesting. I had heard of this one and then forgotten about it. Maybe I’ll give it a shot now that you said it’s worth the watch. I did like the Sopranos. Thanks for another great freebie!

  • Not a movie buff myself, so I wandered around your site….particularly like being able to go to one site to make my grocery list for the next week. Maybe you could post the upcoming week’s ads a couple of days before the ad begins? That would be very helpful. I made my Publix list, and only realized when I finished it that it ended today, and I am not planning to shop Publix until this weekend.

      Dailey…so glad you brought that up! In the next month or so we are looking forward to launching our South Florida Savings Guy Online Weekly Circular Center! It will contain the top stores where most people shop. You’ll be able to go to one page and locate all of the best deals of a retail or grocery store according to their weekly offers and respective cycles. I’ll place your email in a special section and when it comes out will send you a one-time email with the live link so you can have it for future reference. Thank you for the suggestion and we are on the same page! 🙂

    If hubby wants to see it, we will. We are from NY, him from Bronx- me from Brooklyn so a vested interest. I grew up on a block with the Ave X boys.

    • South Florida Savings Guy says:

      Roz, I know about the Ave X boys from a former Brooklyn Resident I used to work with years ago. My family and I are originally from the Bronx. 🙂
      If you and hubby watch it, let me know your thoughts on the movie. 🙂

  • Suzii Fido says:

    i’ve added that to my ‘watch’ list at the weekend, Thanks for the heads up

  • Theresa says:

    I must tell my husband about this movie! I think he went though a deep depression when Sopranos ended – haha! Thanks for the info.

    • South Florida Savings Guy says:

      I’m laughing with you handling it when the Soprano’s ended. There are four actors that I counted that were all main characters on The Soprano’s in the movie so if he enjoyed The Soprano’s, then he’ll enjoy “Gotti!” 🙂

  • Vickie Maris says:

    Thanks for the tip. I had never noticed full-length movies available before in YouTube, but I admit I hadn’t gone looking for them either. I don’t watch many movies.

    • South Florida Savings Guy says:

      Some people are not movie watchers. Sometimes freebies come in different packages and I enjoy sharing tips like this so thank you for your kind words! 🙂

  • Thanks for the movie tip. 🙂 And I have not watched this film yet, am not sure why, normally I would have seen this, so I will definitely go and watch it one evening when home.

  • What a great tip! Thanks for letting me know. BTW, I almost didn’t get to the meat of your article because your Florida State comment creeped me out. 😉 Love, Gator Jackie

    • South Florida Savings Guy says:

      Ahhh, we have a friendly rivarly between FSU and UF! I’m glad you were able to view the rest of the article and get past the horrors of seeing a winning football club listed Jackie! 😉

  • Erin says:

    Thanks for this awesome tip! I’m not much of a movie watcher, but I bet a few little people in my house can benefit from this info. (Not this movie, but maybe others!). 🙂

    • South Florida Savings Guy says:

      That’s okay! Hopefully you can find some free movies by surfing youtube with this “freebie” tip! 🙂
