Movie Info

A frustrated New York actor whose sick of being typecast due to his Italian-American heritage sets out to seek help from the one actor who could provide his big break in a satirical showbiz comedy starring William DeMeo, Carmen Electra, Sandra Bernhard, and Tyson Beckford. Johnny Argano is Brooklyn born and bred. Though he's confident that he has the skills to make a name for himself on the big screen, he resents the fact that casting directors only seem to select him for stereotypical roles. In Johnny's eyes, the only way to break the vicious cycle of typecasting is to get the attention of his screen idol Robert De Niro, and in order to make that happen Johnny will have to pen a screenplay that truly stands apart from the pack. With his career on the line and nothing left to lose, the frustrated actor gathers together a dedicated team of die-hard filmmakers to raise the money they need to get their film made, and convince the star of Taxi Driver and Raging Bull to accept a starring role in the movie that will make them all famous.

Audience Reviews for Searching for Bobby DeNiro

** (out of four) Interesting idea for a movie. A young Italian-American actor is upset that he is only considered for certain types of roles. So, he takes matters into his own hands and decides to make his own movie. Then he sets out to try and get Robert de Niro to star in it. The idea is good, but the film never takes off. It seems to be grounded in its own stereo-type. Notable for being the last film for Lillo Brancato before he was arrested on murder charges.

Enjoyable comedy with a terrific cast that works well together. Funny situations, well written and nicely directed. Good pace and always interesting. Harmless fun.
