The greatest highlights of Joe Pesci's many-sided career were definitely his classic roles in Martin Scorsese's breathtaking movies "Raging bull" (1980), "Goodfellas" (1990) and "Casino" (1995). He acted in "The Super" only a year after his marvelous Oscar-winning role in Scorsese's finest movie - the spectacular masterpiece "Goodfellas". Well "The Super" is a very different flick from what it was like and at first I was very suspicious about it but it totally surprised me. This is a movie that is built completely around Pesci's comic talents and at the latest after seeing the film I should believe no one can deny it anymore: damn he's a very funny little man! Another thing that is great about "The Super" is the most fabulous script with lots of hilarious lines and clever, amusing and entertaining ideas. What's best about all this, film is rather a short one. It's got basically only one joke so they end the movie on time before it wears out. The ideal way to watch "The Super" is to open a bottle of beer after a hard day, slouch on the sofa and just enjoy this stupidness. It's not Scorsese's work and it certainly isn't very ingenious film but it really made me laugh and I guess that's what comedies are suppose to do.
