The Writers’ View:
The viewers absolutely loved and adored this film and maybe some can’t wait for the sequel of it if they have any plans on making one. The movie is for sure to bring out the sense of humor to the crowd, although for now that seems pretty common with some other experts and practiced comedians. Although, the movie is not the type that Deniro normally does, but he really did a great job here in performing his part. The movie is really funny from beginning up to the end.
For some older crowd that went to watch this and found this movie too offensive or there is something offending in it, but for sure they will understand it somehow. The movie is not the type to watch together with the kids, but still, it is highly recommended, especially if you are someone don’t get offended easily and have that sense of humor just like the many of us!
