How to make a film out of Mordecai Richler's book, Barney's Version? I think generally he would have approved. The cast was very attractive with Minnie Driver as the second Mrs P. and Dustin Hoffman as Barney's father, the Jewish New York cop.Paul Giamatti as Barney was ideal.The screen version would have to tone down the bite and punch of the book but the kinder softer version still has enough of the wit and humour to be very entertaining to watch.
