Next Screening? DeNiro, Cattrall, Bibb and that Maniscalco fellow, “About My Father”

I’m guessing this could be OK, a sort of “S#*t My Italian-American Dad Says and Does,” starring DeNiro and co-starring the comic Sebastian Maniscalco, who was in “Somewhere in Queens” and “Spinning Gold” recently.

It’s sort of semi-autobiographical, I guess? Maniscalco co-wrote it, plays a version of himself with the great Robert D. as his un-PC pops.

Sebastian must be one persuasive paisan in a pitch.

Opens Friday, on the heels of all the Blockbusters of May. So low expectations, but if he hits that “family” funny bone just right, it could have legs.
