So here’s a question for you: Who was the better at self-parody humor –

deniro Robert De Niro as Paul Vitti in Analyze This?

Or Marlon Brando as Carmine Sabatini in The Freshman?brando

It may be an apples and oranges sort of thing, as one has to factor in the kinds of characters that they were playing, the different writing quality and all.

For my money, though, I think De Niro was funnier.  And scarier.
