Goofs

Credits show a character description "paparazzi" and lists one actor's name. Paparazzi is the plural masculine form of the Italian noun "paparazzo". Because there was only one photojournalist hoping for a picture of someone famous, the noun should be in the singular form in the credits. Therefore, the character's description should correctly be listed as "paparazzo". See more »

Cadillac Man is a Robin Williams movie, I can still come back to watching, like See No Evil Hear No Evil. Though not always funny, with Williams carrying it, you're guaranteed a good time. In another splendid performance, Williams plays a womanizing car salesman, who at the start, tries to sell an old woman a car who's present one has broken down. Emphasis on broken down here, as she was on way with her padres to a funeral, so her mood, like the others, isn't one that brightens. Williams is sort of a sleazebag on the side, never missing an opportunity. I really found this movie hugely entertaining, where the second half, intensifies, as Robin's infidelity finally catches up with him, as Robbins in a great performance, as a nutso, comes crashing through his place of work on his motorcycle. Here we really lose the laughs as things quickly become dramatic. Williams has supposedly been doing Robbin's girlfriend (Sciorra) so a hostage situation develops. Williams has some great lines, and again we see a bit of his own dialogue input. I loved the woman at the Chinese restaurant, where Williams and his co workers frequent, and where the police negotiator and his men set up base, oh "On the condition they eat". Although people have found this disappointing, I really love this film, William's character too, Joey, having ties in with the mafia. The casting is great. Every actor delivers, but truthfully, Robbins is the acting force here, out performing Williams. Robbins is so riveting to watch, you don't know what he'll do next. Cadillac Man is definitely worth a view, even if it runs low in the laugh expectation ratio, but Robbins and Williams are great to watch.
