Robert De Niro is doing the same comedy with different actors
February 22nd, 2023 under Robert De Niro. [ Comments: none ]

Robert De Niro started doing comedies when he starred in Meet the Fockers. Since then, he has made the same movie but with different casts.

The hottest comic in America, Sebastian Maniscalco joins forces with legendary Italian-American and two-time Oscar® winner, Robert De Niro (Best Actor, Raging Bull, 1980), in the new comedy ABOUT MY FATHER. The film centers around Sebastian (Maniscalco) who is encouraged by his fiancée (Leslie Bibb) to bring his immigrant, hairdresser father, Salvo (De Niro), to a weekend get-together with her super-rich and exceedingly eccentric family (Kim Cattrall, Anders Holm, Brett Dier, David Rasche). The weekend develops into what can only be described as a culture clash, leaving Sebastian and Salvo to discover that the great thing about family is everything about family.

Even though About My Father has the same feel as Dirty Grandpa and The War with Grandpa, it still looks funny AF.

Not everything has to be Oscar-worthy with the actor, and he makes it works. So I will be there to see when it comes out on May 26th. Will you be there too?


Robert De Niro punched out Jimmy Fallon!

Robert De Niro was a guest on The Tonight Show yesterday, and he played a game with Jimmy Fallon. One that we have played at least once in our lifetimes.

What is it? It is Hot Hands. However, the Oscar winner plays it differently than we do. The winner of the round punches the loser in the jaw. So that is what he did to the NBC host. And since they played several rounds, there was a lot of punching.

Eventually, De Niro ended the game with three hits, a 1-2 punch, and Fallon hitting the floor.

Something I am sure he enjoyed because the legendary actor is so much better than that skit.


Are you really a celebrity if you aren’t in Netflix’s Amsterdam?

Netflix released the trailer for the star-studded Amsterdam. And it truly is star-studded. The film stars Christian Bale, Margot Robbie, John David Washington, Chris Rock, Anya Taylor-Joy, Zoe Saldaña, Mike Myers, Michael Shannon, Timothy Olyphant, Andrea Riseborough, Taylor Swift, Matthias Schoenaerts, Alessandro Nivola, Rami Malek, and Robert De Niro.

Are those names enough to make you see the film in November?


The War with Grandpa is the young vs old revenge family movie we all need
August 14th, 2020 under Robert De Niro. [ Comments: none ]
I don’t know about you, but I desperately need a family comedy that involves a lot of pain and even more laughter. Well, I am going to get all of that on October 9th with The War with Grandpa.

Sixth-grader Peter (Oakes Fegley) is pretty much your average kid-he likes gaming, hanging with his friends and his beloved pair of Air Jordans. But when his recently widowed grandfather Ed (Robert De Niro) moves in with Peter’s family, the boy is forced to give up his most prized possession of all, his bedroom. Unwilling to let such an injustice stand, Peter devises a series of increasingly elaborate pranks to drive out the interloper, but Grandpa Ed won’t go without a fight. Soon, the friendly combatants are engaged in an all-out war with side-splitting consequences.

I know most people will say that Robert De Niro’s greatest movies are his Oscar-winning films. I say they are his revenge comedies. Watching him torture Ben Stiller in the Meet the Fockers franchise is pure gold. What about all the craziness he brought the Analyze This and then That? Then there was that movie he went muscle to muscle with Zac Efron in Dirty Grandpa. This is why, I think, he became an actor. However, other people might say it is for Raging Bull and Taxi Driver.


Aren’t Dolittle and Jungle Cruise basically the same movie?
October 13th, 2019 under Robert De Niro, The Rock. [ Comments: none ]

Martin Scorsese said, “Theaters have become amusement parks.” Some might argue that he is wrong. Then this week, we got two trailers that look like amusement park rides come to life on the big screen. Granted Jungle Cruise is based on one at Disney. However, Dolittle feels like it will be coming to Universal in 2023. Which makes me think the legendary director is right.

When it comes to Dolittle, Robert Downey Jr. as Dolittle, I prefer Eddie Murphy’s version. I would rather be on a ride based on the latter one’s movie than the one that is coming out on January 17th. What about you?
