    As a story, this isn't something that's 100% original and never been done before. All that being said, all you have to do is match a pro like Pacino with a criminally underrated talent like Cannavale and what you palpably get is one hell of a heartwarming, crowed-pleaser.

    Inspired by a true story, Danny Collins is a fun comedy that delivers some good laughs. After receiving a letter from John Lennon 37 years late, washed up rock star Danny Collins decides to make some changes to his life, and begins by reconnecting with his estranged son; which lead him to start to write music again. Starring Al Pacino, Annette Bening, Bobby Cannavale, and Jennifer Garner, the film has a solid cast. However, the plot's a little formulaic; with all the standard tropes about fallen rock stars and estranged fathers and sons. Yet they kind of work, and made for some touching moments. While it may want for originality, Danny Collins an entertaining and heartfelt film about second chances.

    "Danny Collins" has Al Pacino at his best in years as the title role, and boy did I not expect this movie to be so great. I have seen biopics about rockstars of the past before and most of them turn out to be a little pretentious and overdone, but not this picture. Filled with wit, heart, real human drama, and a lot of love, "Danny Collins" is a terrific film. I do wish the film explored a little more of him personally, rather than his sons family, but that is me just being nit-picky. This is a terrific film from start to finish, filled with great music and superb performances all around. I really believed Bobby Carnavale as Al Pacino's son in this film. "Danny Collins" is one of the most heartwarming stories of 2015, and Al Pacino deserves every bit of praise he is receiving for his portrayal of Mr. Collins. This film moved me.
