Sadly Funny

Pros: Outrageously Funny

Cons: Melancholy at the same time

Seeing this film re enforced my admiration for DeNiro. What a class act this man is. He seems to pick roles that are emotionally deep and complex characters. Maybe he just brings the characters to life because of his acting...I don't know. Hoffman too is fabulous as the trashy female impressionist. His character is a cross between Divine and Sally Bowles.

The story of friendship between two very unlikely people who are diametrically opposed in just about every way. This movie is about friendship, love, shame, despair, pride and the circle of life. It brings together a group of friends who begin to like each other in spite of their sizeable differences.

It's strangly sad yet hysterically funny at the same time. Through all of the wickedly funny jabs, there is a deep undercurrent of angst. It's fascinating to watch these two actors go through this film.

This film deals with mature subject matter and may not be suitable for young children and those who are easily shocked.
