Charley Partanna (Jack Nicholson) works for the Prizzi mob family, and is one of the Godfather's most loyal hit men.  When Partanna chooses not to marry the Don's daughter, Maerose (Anjelica Huston) their once picturesque relationship is soiled.

 

Partanna instead falls for another lady, Irene Walker (Kathleen Turner) -- who also happens to be a hit woman for the Prizzi clan.  The two are opposites in many ways, but that draws them closer together.  Everything is perfect until their bosses' reveal Charley and Irene's latest target: each other.

 

Prizzi's Honor won four Golden Globe Awards in addition to an Oscar for John Huston's daughter Anjelica's performance, making her the third generation of the Huston family to win an Academy Award.
