So ahead of its time, this film is, in terms of people's obsession with fame at all costs.

Very interesting example of black humor. De Niro's characterization is spot on, but this is not for every one. 8/10

One of the best drama movie i have ever watched. Really amazing. What makes it so great is the performances and the way it's directed. De Niro nailed his role to perfection. Proves why he is a legend and a king of acting. I felt pity for his character but also fully engrossed on how De Niro delivered the performance. He and Scorcese need to team up again and make a great movie like this. Loved this.

Great film, Deniro and Scorsese at their best! The moral of the story; never give up on your dream :)

Love Deniro, (always). But for me, the KING in this film was Jerry Lewis... He plays a semi-straight guy instead of the funny guy... And he IS great! :0}

This is a dark comedy, magnificent performances by De Niro, Lewis and Bernhard, and of course Mr. Tony Randall's and Victor Borg's cameo roles, this guy committed a felony went to prison came out rich and famous and got his own television show, wow, the American dream... But for me it's Jerry Lewis, his King of Comedy...5/5 *****
