Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
Like Scorsese's Casino, in which Rickles had a small role, Mr. Warmth tips its hat to a demolished way of life--Vegas power having transferred from the Mob to the even scarier thugs of corporations.
The dichotomy of Rickles' customary matador-theme entrance and tongue-in-cheek but true theme song "I'm a Nice Guy" captures Rickles' secret of success: you gotta love him.
| Original Score: 3.5/4
Landis doesn't buttress Rickles' shtick with anything but smoke and mirrors, and the film falls away like a cheap suit.
| Original Score: 2.5/5
A hilarious movie about a surprisingly funny man.
Confirms that Rickles's enduring popularity as the high priest of putdowns can be chalked up to an admirable national trait to not take ourselves too seriously.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
