Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Jeremy Beday
Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts play two Italian cousins, Charlie and Paulie, who run afoul of both the police and local mob boss Burt Young in their New York neighborhood when a safe-cracking scheme backfires. Charlie, much like Harvey Keitel's character of the same name in Martin Scorsese's Mean Streets, is a dapper hanger-on at the edge of gangsterdom, while Paulie, much like the Robert DeNiro character in the same film, is a moronic, womanizing loser for whom his inexplicably devoted cousin must account in the end. Thin at best, the plot comes second to the study of character; unfortunately, the characterization is uniformly two-dimensional. The filmmakers seem more interested in ethnic stereotypes than a story. Incidentally, Italians are identified by their gold chains, poor table manners and wild gesticulations, while Irishmen are characterized as cheap conniving boozers, and WASPs can be picked out by their taste for canned soup and soft white bread. The atmospheric soundtrack (including several appropriate tracks by Frank Sinatra is helpful but not enough to carry this fatally flawed film.

    A really enjoyable experience!

    This film while not a masterpiece by any stretch of the imagination is a film that you come away from feeling good and satisfied at having had a good time watching a movie! I recommend it for a night's entertainment. On another subject-Why do so many New Yorkers think that the streets they live on are the only tough streets in the world? Everything that happens in New York is happening on the streets of every other major city in the world!!! Give us non New Yorkers a break!

    ROURKE IS POPE IN GUIDOHEAVEN

    Mickey Rourke is a Manhattan wiseass/Maitre'D in a restaurant who spends his time with whacky cousin Paulie (Eric Roberts). They decide to rob a safe, which belongs to a Mafioso and get into a whole lot of trouble. Between stuffing their faces with guinea cuisine, smoking cigarettes, drinking, looking at women, and trying to make a quick buck, the two cousins learn a lot about each other---and about life. The two actors have excellent chemistry and their performances shine. Any New Yorker and any paizan like me would love this flick. I'm still hoping for a sequel. Vincent Patrick's novel of the same name is great too.

    The real thing

    In ''The Pope'' Mickey Rourke and Eric Roberts exagerate their characters' ethnic backgrounds a bit, but in a believable way that surely strikes a familiar chord for many. Burt Young's performance as a private club owning, malacious bad guy is right on target with the plot. Supporting roles in the film really carry the story, and provide the viewers with a sense of their own family matters. Not the award winning film of the year, The Pope is a nice film for people from the Village to be able to laugh at themselves as it relates to actual real life situations.
