Al Pachino & Rob Deniro Star in Sucky Movies for The Dough..

In a scathing editorial, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer Patrick Goldstein, claims that shoddy movie work by Al Pachino and Robert Deniro is all about them chasing big pay days. With a upcoming movie together called Righteous Kill a flop of any kind would just drive his point home even more. Pretty good read.

If anyone has made more movies for the money than Pacino, it would be De Niro, who has largely abandoned serious dramatic work for a spate of forgettable horror and crime thrillers (try sitting through “Hide and Seek” or “Godsend”) and lowbrow comedy high jinks like “Meet the Fockers” and “Analyze That.”
