This movie was painful to watch. I'm not sure if it is just because it hasn't aged well but seriously I have never been so disappointed in a movie choice from Robert De Niro or Sean Penn until this moment. And also it was supposed to be a comedy. I thought I was in for an old-time laugh out loud comedy but not so; I didn't laugh once through the entire thing.
It looks like from the other comments that the only people who enjoyed this movie have some sort of religious affiliation or belief. To me that is not good enough. A movie with religious ties does not automatically make it a good movie, a solid script, plot, cast and crew make it a good movie.
Final recommendation: You have been warned, this movie is terrible and not worth your time.
