Easy funny
31 January 2001 | by (New York, U.S.A) – See all my reviews

As a New Yorker, I find that it easy to see why most non-New Yorkers would not love this movie, the way I did. There is a cultural advantage to understand humor in the actions and expressions of the Staten Island dweller, if in fact, you know people who speak and act the same way.

In this movie, Dangerfield is at the top of his game and Pesci has never been funnier (in a supporting role). The dialogue between them is 'Classic, Staten Island'.

Great support comes from Jennifer Jason Leigh and Taylor Negron. Leigh plays the daughter of Dangerfield, who is recently married and still keeps hearing her father's voice, saying 'No'. Negron, Leighs' newly wed hubby, has obvious problems with this and what follows is a terrific sub-plot to an already funny series of events.
