Director: Danny De Vito
Cast: Jack Nicholson, Danny De Vito, Armand Assante, J.T. Walsh

A long, muddled biopic of Jimmy Hoffa, a controversial Teamsters Union boss who disappeared mysteriously in 1975. Jack Nicholson gives a lively performance despite the heavy layer of makeup, but the dull script by David Mamet tells its hero’s life story without emotional highs or lows.
