Untrue bad reviews for funny movie...
23 April 2017 | by (Long Beach, NY) – See all my reviews

If Robert Deniro wasn't so involved in giving his political views that some people didn't agree with. So for that someone took the trouble to bash this funny gem that kept my Interest the entire time unlike most movies that come out that make me fall asleep. It's a sad fact but its so obvious.

Now for a short but 'honest' review. Deniro was his usual genius self and goes from serious to funny in a heartbeat without effort. Edy Falco kept up and had great chemistry with Deniro. The story was interesting and kept me awake.
