Who? Who? What are you, a fucking owl?

Review: I planned on having this review read: “Any movie that has Robert De Niro AND Al Pacino sharing the screen is a shoe-in on this list” but then I remembered they made Righteous Kill together…

So.. Never mind…

Nerdiest Movie Trivia: 
Pacino and De Niro were Michael Mann’s first choices, but at one point Nick Nolte and Jeff Bridges were considered as possible alternatives for the two leading roles.

PREVIOUS ON THE LIST: 48. Tommy Boy (1995)
