Are you kidding me? Stereotyping is one thing, but Martin walks around like he's in some kind of kid's play. His delivery is wooden. His accent is comical only in that he sounds like someone trying to do a bad impersonation of Robert DeNiro. And, Strange Brew notwithstanding, a comedy vehicle with Rick Moranis carrying 50% of the billing? No sir. Big Bully. That is what I have to say to that.
aaah man... don't hate on good ol' Steve Martin.. So his accent isn't "dead on" I have met full blooded Italians who can't muster a decent wise guy imitation, hell at least Martin had body language, facial gestures and comedic timing. Give the guy a break, I mean hell he is one of my all time favorite actors and I even think his recent like 6 years + of films have mostly been shite.
