De Niro, Hoffman, Pacino … DiMartino? It could happen for a hapless, ethnically stereotyped character actor (Costanzo) after he is tapped to secretly audition for the title role in a Martin Scorsese biopic of Al Capone. A sharper script would have helped With Friends Like These, but writer-director Philip Messina has good friends in Bill Murray, Beverly D’Angelo, Garry Marshall, Michael McKean, and even Scorsese, all of whom pop up in hilarious cameos.
