De Niro In Decent Film Shocker!
I’ll be honest, I wasn’t expecting too much from this one, due to some withering reviews on here and also De Niro’s recent track record.
His character, Jackie Burke, is an insult comic who had a hit many years ago with a sitcom. He’s good at what he does, but as he nears seventy the work doesn’t come like maybe it once did, possibly due to his short temper and habit of always doing his act on everyone he meets.
As the film went along, I found myself genuinely liking Jackie, due to sharp writing and a very on form De Niro. Leslie Mann is also impressive (as usual), and there’s a plethora of comedy guest stars who never get in the way of the leads.
Jackie’s journey is handled very well, and there’s a real progression to the narrative, ending with a sweet, on the nail and laugh out loud final scene.
A really good watch, especially for anyone with an interest in stand up comedy, it’s nice to see the nearly living legend return to form in such a nuanced, understated way.
“In 20 years, we’re all gonna be dead so…let’s celebrate while we can.”
Former TV sitcom star-turned-insult comic in New York City is left without booking prospects after he assaults a heckler at an out-of-town club; he spends 30 days in jail (for contempt of court) and must perform 100 hours of community service at a soup kitchen, where he meets an attractive but stressed-out lady with similar anger management issues. Impeccably cast character-comedy featuring a terrific ensemble supporting star Robert De Niro (doing savvy, acerbic work). Edie Falco is De Niro’s humorless manager, Danny DeVito is a welcome sight playing De Niro’s brother, Patti LuPone is a hoot as Danny’s disgusted wife, Leslie Mann is an appealing love-interest (with a hard shell) and Harvey Keitel as Mann’s steely-eyed father has an edgy, amazing scene with De Niro in his restaurant. This world of aging comics, living on their faded glories, is sharply-captured, with all the requisite humiliations intact. The film is a dirty-fingered valentine to show biz, an accurately sour love note to the ‘profession’ of being a once-was. It isn’t pretty…but then, comedy isn’t pretty. **1/2 from ****
