The hilarious part about Vertical Entertainment’s “hit back at the critics” ad is the chanting of the crowd…”GottEE!, GottEE!, GottEE!” Presumably the makers had to round up a few people to stand in front of a mike and chant. Were they professional actors (doubtful) or Vertical Entertainment employees or…? I wish I knew the story behind this.
Audiences loved Gotti but critics don’t want you to see it… The question is why? Trust the people and see it for yourself! pic.twitter.com/K6a9jAO4UH

By the way: I never saw Robert Harmon‘s Gotti (’96), an allegedly so-so HBO drama that starred Armand Assante, William Forsythe, Anthony Quinn and three guys who would later turn up on The Sopranos — Vincent Pastore, Dominic Chianese, Tony Sirico. The reviews were nothing to shout about, but they at least indicate that it was semi-watchable. It isn’t streaming but this morning I found an HD version on YouTube.
