If it were not for Joe Pesci, we would not have even written this article, since the other two once glorious Hollywood stars have tried their come-back every which way, with very little success. Whether it has been comedy, drama, real-life struggle or intrigue, DeNiro and Pacino have to understand it’s just time to let go. If you take a look at Sean Connery’ s path through acting, you’ll understand why and how to step off decently.
My bet, right now, is that the only way this movie is going to score big is if you let Joe Pesci play the leading role, and have DeNiro play a little, and Pacino as little as possible. If it’s not too much trouble, put him straight on closing credits.
It’s just the way we work as a society, we’re always hungry for something new or on the return, such as Joe Pesci. We love DeNiro and Pacino, but they have already become a part of our memory. And we need to keep our memory intact.
