At The Movies: Robert De Niro

Diniro2By Bob Berry

I have a question.

How did Robert De Niro go from the guy who won Oscars for Godfather II and Raging Bull,  was Martin Scorsese’s go-to guy, recipient of the Kennedy Center Honors, and a place on the short list of greatest American actors; to the guy who seemingly mails it in, in B-comedies?

Meet The Parents, Meet The Fockers, The Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle and Little Fockers? Really?

On the other hand, Robert De Niro-yeah, I’m talking to you, was brilliant in Analyze This and Analyze That. And even though every instinct tells me all the gags are in the trailer, the film as bloodlines.

The Intern, co-starring Anne Hathaway, opens this Friday (9/25).
