Kings of South Beach (2007) NR - 2½ Stars

Mafia type guys try to rule Miami and see who can have the nicest night club. The guy that does have it is a true ass and you want to see him go down anyway. The whole movie was pretty cheesy to me and I didn't care about any of the characters. Based on a true story of a nightclub owner taking his club to the top and making South Beach nightlife what it is today. Most of the movie is filmed in the night club which gets a bit over done.

Chris Troiano (Jason Gedrick) is the owner of one of the hottest nightclubs in the Miami South Beach area. It's the place to be and people will wait a long time to get in, just to be in THIS club. It's where all the trendy people go and you have to be someone to get in special in front of the lines. The police are watching the place as they know there is more going on there than meets the eye and just waiting for Troiano to mess up.

Andy Burnett (Donnie Walhberg) works at the club sometimes watching the door, a bouncer when needed and anything else Troiano has in store. Troiano is close to bankruptcy. He takes Andy under his wing and together they face the mafia to establish the best club on South Beach. But eventually Troiano goes off on just about everyone he knows as the police stay one step before him.
