BS: OT Does anyone know this movie

I am trying to remember what movie this line came from:

"You could have been nicer!"

I think it was from a conversation between two brothers , near the end of the movie. And the general gist was that one brother was talking about his life, probably rationalizing some bad acts; and the other brother answers with that quote.

Of course, it could have been two business partners, and not brothers. Or even two old friends. This has been nagging at my mind for a few days now, and googling didn't help; so I thought I'd open it up to the Cats . Thanks.

And so as not to make this thread a total OT ramble; , feel free to mention any fave memorable lines from movies - hopefully NOT 'frankly my dear....' but lines that ' made the movie ' for you, just like a great lyric 'makes' a song .

That's it!!! Thank you Jeri!

After getting the movie's name, I found the exact quote between comic/egotist
Buddy Young Jr ( Billy Crystal )and his brother/agent:

"I didn't take your life Stan, I gave you one "
"Yeah but you coulda been nicer"


That was quick - kudos to you for your help Jeri.
I think I 'll enjoy rewatching it again too.
