Storyline

Searching for Bobby D is a comedy about four New Yorkers, the film's star Johnny Argano, Tommy, Mike, and the only non-Italian in the group Jerome who are all stuck getting the worst parts as New York actors. They are all sick of it and want to move up in the world. But things begin to look up when Johnny's cousin Leo says a rich guy in Pennsylvania loves movies and would be willing to put up some money for the film for which Johnny has written a script. Desperate, the boys decide to take a road trip down to Pennsylvania, but soon enough the boys come to realize Leo is still a complete goof and that he's told their potential investor that Robert Deniro has signed on to appear in the film.

Light Hearted and Funny
2 February 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Okay, not a Spielberg or Lucas film, but it is funny and an interesting idea for a movie. Definitely, good rainy day watching movie. I give it a 7 for independent film, it would be lower if it was professional. The characters are stereotypical Itialians, many folks made a lot of money doing this, i.e. "Friends, etc." because you can't help laughing at the way these people talk. Compared to other independent films I have watched, this is well made and has a professional quailtity, it would be a good film for a studio to buy a re-do professionally. I would not buy the DVD, but its certainly worth a rental on a rainy or snowy day. The characters are many people I have seen in Robert Deniro movies as extras and background actors, I would imagine this is how they came up with the idea.
