Donnie Brasco

Character mistake: In the scene where Sonny Black introduces Donnie Brasco to the Boss of Florida on the boat, he introduces Donnie as a "friend of ours". To call someone a "friend of ours" means that they are a member of the mafia, which at the time, Donnie Brasco was not. The correct phrase would have been a "friend of mine". The difference between 'friend of mine' and 'friend of ours', and it's inflexibility, is clearly explained by Lefty earlier in this movie.

New this month Suggested correction: Sonny Black says a friend of ours because he is representing Sonny who was recently upped in the movie and since Donnie now works and represents Sonny he tells the boss he's a "friend of ours" making Donnie a made man.
