This is a great movie! I was almost fooled by the ratings and reluctantly decided to watch it. It was so funny and good. All the actors were superb too. I really recommend it.

Make no mistake, this is an ADULT movie. The type of film we used to go see at the theatre when these films could make a profit and everyone didnt expect shoot em ups and gangs.
It is a " dramedy". Sometimes vulgar, but that is because THAT is who Deniro was old time, almost Don Rickles type of comedian. If you have seen some comedians OFF of the television screen then you know they are not all clean and polite.
The drama part of the movie deals with relationships, looking at yourself, and getting through life.
This is a very fine acted film, that I am glad Deniro chose to do as it shows he has more than just tough guy acts still in him.
A bit slower for the young generation as its not really MEANT for them, so if you are not ready to be entertained by masters of their crafts who have paid their dues and concentrate on the acting rather than the action, and if you dont want to enjoy the drama of the characters, then by all means go and borrow another Fast and Furious movie.
Others, enjoy this film as Deniro shines and the supporting characters are brilliant.

This movie is very harsh in language. It's sad Robert De Niro talent was wasted on the movie.
I didn't even give the movie 10 minutes before losing interest.

Robert DeNiro is always awesome...and he's always scoring much younger women in his roles. I would've liked to have seen a little more stand-up from the cameo appearances by comedians.
