Time to admit that I’ve ignored What Just Happened? completely and utterly. It’s a comedy with Robert De Niro; what do you expect me to do? I don’t care if it’s directed by Barry Levinson from Art Linson’s book. It’s a comedy with Robert De Niro, so it’s automatically off the radar.
Does that status change after I’ve been prodded with this red band clip hosted at IGN? Not really. Bruce Willis (in character as Bruce Willis) ranting about his beard is on the nose like a goddamned blackhead. Funny thing is, De Niro is the best part of this clip, as his struggling movie producer gets pressed into a corner by the enraged Willis. Show me some real work from Stanley Tucci and John Tuturro and I might set aside the strict ‘no De Niro comedy’ edict, just this once.
