The dialougue was quick and succinct. I want to see it again to catch all the nuances. ALL the actors were awesome including Chris Tucker. I was surprised and blown away by his acting ability since he has always been typecast. Robert Deniro..well what can I say? Flawless everytime. The mother was the enabler but I would like to see her own life story in another movie becuase I was intrigued and drawn into her also. Great movie.....Its different, it's funny...it's REAL!
