Ron Swanson : Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Don’t teach a man to fish, and you feed yourself. He’s a grown man. Fishing’s not that hard.

Verdict – 0/5

 

Pros –

 
N/A

 

Cons –

 

1) It’s neither Devil’s Wears Prada nor As Good As It Gets.
2) Robert De Niro is the title character but mid-way the central story shifts to the relation of Anne Hathaway and Anders Holm which is preposterous for a movie goer like me who is here only for Bobby.
3) Not a single memorable scene.Absolutely avoidable.
4) Anders Holm as Matt – bad casting for an important role.
5) Movie is full of predicatable and stereotypical characters.
