In my opinion, this movie was a total waste of my time. I guess it just depends on what you expect out of a movie. Good actors/actress's so I thought I's give it a try. If you are into plots where everyone gets blown away you might like it but not for me!

Lazy Rendition of Mobster Movie.

This movie was fragmented and corny at best. Deniro trying to be a writer in the movie was a tease which never panned out. The son wanting to bail to Paris to become a mobster was a good idea and should have been elaborated. The love story between Belle and the Math teacher was enticing yet never delivered. If anything a little more love in this movie could have made up for it's drought. Michele Pheiffer crawling on the floor was ridiculous! I found the frequent references to supposed incredible italian food being eaten to be quite annoying because they never showed any of it. What a rip-off to have '*****' from the Sopranos in the movie. It was obvious the director tried a little too hard to revere the movie as 'gangster' when Good Fellows was screened by Deniro. The ending although good and suspenseful was too short-lived. A better alternative ending would have been they all cross-fired one another and died because none of the characters fully developed.

Martin Scorcese is losing It

A great cast.... and the worst writing imaginable. A few mildly funny moments, amidst violence so stupid and pervasive as to make it ridiculous. I can just picture Marty and Bob De Niro sitting around onset thinking up all kinds of funny gags. None of which work. Time for either retirement or finding good writers, Mr. S.

This movie showed all the funny parts in the previews. The violence was a shock considering I thought this was going to be a comedy. Would not recommend at all.

Well, if you want to just go and watch a dark comedy, not putting too much thought into details, then go. If you are really going to pick a movie a part, then this may not be for you. I had fun. It has a lot of "F" bombs, but I pretty much expected it. If you don't see it in the theater, then you really should rent it. I would say for sure you can enjoy it as a rental.
