Why haven't more people seen--or been impressed by--Hoffa, Danny DeVito's 1992 film written by David Mamet and starring Jack Nicholson as the controversial President of the Teamsters? Mike and Dan offer no reasons--only enthusiasm for this terrific movie that, yes, is a wholly Hoffa-friendly portrayal, but also a terrific portrait of a man always onstage. Mike contends that Nicholson's Hoffa tops Pacino's; Dan talks about Mamet's love of the con game and how he gets away with murder in this one. So tell Bobby Kennedy to wait a few minutes and give it a listen!
