This movie was so great! Robert De Niro is amazing in this! He was made to play this part! This Boy's Life is funny, entertaining, and a five star, two thumbs up movie!

I hate to say it, but I think one mis-cast character in this film really damaged the final product. Ellen Barkin just did not fit the role of the mother, Caroline, at all. The mother character in this film should have been more down to earth. I'm thinking along the lines of Holly Hunter. In this role Barkin just seemed too glamorous for a poor single mom bouncing from places to place in a broken down car during the mid-50's. Were they going for the Donna Reed image here? Also, I think Barkin just brings that B-Movie element to anything that she does. It's really a shame, too, because the other characters are so strong. DeNiro is thoroughly entertaining as usual. Most of his work (both good and bad) is so widely publicized that it was actually nice to find this lesser known work. And then, of course, there is DiCaprio, who is masterful as the young boy. Too bad that in his later career he shifted away from parts like this and Gilbert Grape and started inflicting garbage like Titanic and The Aviator upon us. Oh well. This one is worth the watch if you can stomach Barkin.
