The Comeback Trail
The Comeback Trail: Directed by George Gallo. With Robert De Niro, Tommy Lee Jones, Morgan Freeman, Zach Braff. Two movie producers who owe money to the mob set up their aging movie star for an insurance scam to try and save themselves. But they wind up getting more than they ever imagined.
With a huge list of A-List actors in such an oddball low budget film, there’s usually a couple ways the film goes: a money grab where the talent was on set for like an hour and did not give a fuck the entire time, or it’s a film they bade with a buddy and there’s some real heart in it. Luckily this one turned out to be the latter of the two and if you’ve seen the producers you’ll be familiar with the broad strokes here. If you’re a fan of the big three names, it’d be worth your time to check it out.
