Tin Men – Zwei haarsträubende Rivalen: Directed by Barry Levinson. With Richard Dreyfuss, Danny DeVito, Barbara Hershey, John Mahoney. A minor car accident drives two rival aluminum-siding salesmen to the ridiculous extremes of man versus man in 1963 Baltimore.
“Rival aluminum-siding salesman declare war in another of director Levinsonu0026#39;s returns to his hometown Baltimore, with Dreyfuss and DeVito playing the two feuding parties who constantly try to one up one another in a series of silly and childish gags. Thatu0026#39;s where the film falters, but it is in the charming performance of Hershey where the film is successful. Considering sheu0026#39;s the only character with morals in the entire piece, sheu0026#39;s the one you care for and root for. (An especially wonderful scene with DeVito on the porch when the IRS has taken his house.) Dreyfuss and DeVito, with exception to the silly gags the writers engaged their characters in, are in fine form, as always. Stand out performances from Mahoney as a real u0026quot;tin man,u0026quot; and comedien Jackie Gayle, who has a fixation with knocking u0026quot;Bonanza,u0026quot; are excellent.”
