The Godfather is considered one of the greatest films of all time. It has everything! Gangsters, guns, and angry Italians. I even learned how to make sauce from Peter Clemenza. But don't tell my mother -- she has her own recipe.

As the year comes to a close and most people start making New Year's resolutions for 2012, I find myself wondering, What would the Corleone family be thinking about doing for the New Year? Well, here is a great list of resolutions from the Don(s) and others:

1. Don't ever take sides with anyone against the Family.

2. Leave the gun, take the cannoli.

3. Never ask me about my business.

4. Give Johnny a part in that war movie.

5. It's not personal ... It's strictly business.

6. I don't like violence ...  I'm a businessman.

7.  A man who doesn't spend time with his family can never be a real man.

8. You can act like a man!
