Robert DeNiro has nothing left to prove and can take on any role he pleases. Sadly his attempt to be a stand up comedy is a crash and burn experience, despite his best intentions to be a real stand up kind of guy. A lot of these jokes are hit and miss on top of being borderline scandalous. I may never quite understand why he would want to be the star of such a story because there was no amazing ending or life lesson to be learnt. I did enjoy the feel of the New York nightlife, but not enough to enjoy the whole film.
