Robert De Niro, I love you, I really do but enough with these rom-coms already. What happened to the Bobby from Goodfellas and Raging Bull? Sure, you were great in comedies like Analyze This and Meet the Parents, but this is too much.
In The Comedian, De Niro plays Jackie Burke, an aging comic icon once beloved by TV audiences who has struggled to stay relevant. When his character is forced to do community service, he strikes up a friendship with Harmony, played by Leslie Mann.
The Comedian is getting a limited run in New York and Los Angeles on Dec. 2 before going into select theaters on Jan. 13.
