Story Synopsis:
Darrell (Usher) is the hottest DJ in town and seems to know exactly what kind of music should be thrown "In The Mix" when working an event. After saving the life of mob boss Frank Pacelli (Palminteri) at one such event, Frank asks Darrell to become the bodyguard for his daughter Dolly (Chriqui).
