    "Can't argue with this being overrated, but then again anything that is good tends to be blown out of the water to the point of no return. I'm looking at you, Disney songs. Anyways, Goodfellas is a classic by this point and if you haven't seen it, then go get it. There's a reason people love it."

    "This film has changed my perspective on gangster movies. Well, The Godfather was really a good gangster movie, but then the Goodfellas showed the life of an organized crime, which was new to me. Bravo to the direction and the outstanding performance of the actors. "

    "Goodfellas is not really set in the 50's. Part of it is set in the 50's but it is not like the many other period pieces available. That being said it is one of the greatest gangster/mob movies of all time."
