This movie is a 5 Star in a particular category! You have to have had a tradgedy or be a older person to be able to see why what the charector dare doing is so great. It’s not about the crime it is about fighting for life and being alive at any age. I guess what I am communicating is that if your a millennial in 2020 you probably won’t get it, yet everyone else born you will.
Surprise cameo Christopher Lloyd, I love all these guys are still acting, yea!

A great time killer on a hot summer night. How can you go wrong with Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine? Yes it was a little sad in some parts and shows once again that getting old is not for sissies.

I gave this 4 1/2 stars because it was a delightful, funny and charming movie. We all get old and I hope as gracefully as these 3 men did. These are actors that will always be remembered for their talent and acting acuity. I love all three of these actors and this movie brings the out best of their talents. This is not a movie for the young, It is a movie for those mature movie goers that Hollywood has pretty much forgotten.

While this movie was a little slow, my husband and I still enjoyed it. Just how do 3 old men rob a bank, and get away with it? I just love Michael Caine & Morgan Freeman! They are amazing. I don't know Alan Arkin that well, but he was pretty good too. It also had Christopher Lloyd - he plays a great senile old man!

Funny in some parts, sad in others. While it was a little slow, my husband and I kept deciding to give it 5 more minutes... Then 5 more... By then, the movie was over. Definitely a cute movie - how do three 70 - somethings (they're all really in their 80's in real life) pull off a bank robbery? And how do they get away with it?

A fine film with a couple hiccups, however charming and mostly believable with the help of a hired hand to help pull this off, and the fortune of a young girl that kept a secret. Alan Arkin (Little Miss Sunhine: 2006; Million Dollar Arm: 2014), Michael Caine (Harry Brown: 2009; Kingsmen: The Secret Service: 2014) and Morgan Freeman (Lucy: 2014; Now You See Me 1 &2; Dolphin Tale 1 & 2) work well together and is largely successful with this heist film. Nice to see Ann-Margaret (Tommy: 1975; Magic: 1978; Grumpy Old Men: 1993) is still working.

This is not so much a remake of the bittersweet dramedy starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Straussburg but a variation on the British Comedy THE GOLDEN YEARS, right down to the happy ending (although THE GOLDEN YEARS has a slyly naughty conclusion.) Get it also, enjoy it, and see if I`m not right! And as always: ENJOY!

A great remake. A great story line. I am one that usually thinks that the original is the best, and remakes are a poor attempt to recreate the magic, as with Ghostbusters-2016. LOTS of dialog and action compared to the original with George Burns, which I like. The only thing I have an issue with is the language some of the tongue and cheek jokes. I believe the story line and all-star cast in this case could carry the movie. Hollywood should try it some time.

This comedy and crime film is about lifelong friends entering retirement who decide to infiltrate the bank that screwed them of their pensions so that they can come through and provide for their families. The movie stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin, making the movie hilarious with very likeable and entertaining characters. Although the movie was charming, it was heavily maintained by it’s all-star cast and would have failed miserably on its own. I would rate this almost there film 3/5 stars and recommend it to those who are fans of risky friendship films full of laughs and wonder. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

I was ten years old when I saw this.
Language was an issue.

But, this...

Now, at the time of our merger, Semtech had no intentions of shuttering U.S. operations. However, with the demand for specialty parts way down, and the cost of operations in this country rising steadily, they have made the decision to move all manufacturing to Vietnam. Wechsler's stateside operations will be phased out over the next 30 days. …
-Semtech Steel has frozen all pension payments during this transitional period.
What does that mean? Frozen?
-Wechsler maintained a fund to honor all pre-merger pension plans, which was eventually to be married with the new pension fund under the new labor contract.
For God's sake, can you say that in English?
-No U.S. operations, no fiscal responsibility for Semtech. The pension fund is being dissolved.
With all due respect, Donald, thirty years of hard work means shxt to you people! Without my pension money, I can't even pay rent this month.

I'm going home and sort out my pills.
Hey, Willie. How you feeling?
-Partly cloudy, Doc. Partly cloudy.
Well, I'm not going to lie to you.
-You can. I won't mind.
The dialysis is working marginally. You know, a kidney is all that's going to get you well.
-Well, I'll look on eBay.
You're way down the list. It's partially your age, it's partially your insurance. It's partially... Kidneys aren't that easy to come by.
-Yeah. Everybody wants to hold on to theirs.
You gotta think of it like putting down a horse. Sometimes, it's the kindest, most ethical thing you can do.
-Well, thank you for being so honest with me. I really appreciate your candor.
Well, your grandson hasn't got a musical bone in his body.
-I know. It was so painful listening in the other room.
And I had to sit across from him.

I'm thinking of robbing a bank.
-Oh. I'm thinking about buying a Ferrari.
-- Hmm. I just got drafted by the Knicks.
Good week for everybody, huh?
We got skills, experience. Smarts.
-Arthritis, gout, shingles.
The thing is, what do you want, Al? You want to drift off into the sunset, or do you want to go out with a bang?
-I don't have a problem with dying. I just don't want to do it in prison.
Yeah, listen, I got to tell you. You're a terrific person, but I know what you're doing. You're wasting your time. I don't want to have a relationship with anybody.
-I wasn't offering one.
Good, great. Then we see eye to eye.

You were going to make a cordon bleu with chicken thighs? That's a crime in and of itself.
-I have nothing to say for myself.
Look what you did to Cindy. Now she looking like a Colombian drug mule. Never in all my years has anybody ever walked off with a whole pork loin. What would your momma say?
-Go big or go home.
You drive like my grandmother, and she drove a horse and buggy.
We need to find the type of people who do bad things.
-What makes you think that I would know people like that?
I figured your kind move in the same circles.
-My kind? Entrepreneurs?
No. Lowlifes. Deadbeats. Gangster types.
The right getaway car is very important. Find something they'll never suspect. … You have to be in great physical shape. Now I realize you guys are 4,000 years old. … But under those masks, you're going to need to feel like you're 20. … Now this is crucial. You have to have a solid alibi.

Listen, I think you're sweet, and I find you very attractive.
- Oh, you think I'm attractive.
You're a lovely person. I think that's wonderful.
-But you're not looking for a relationship. Is that right?
That's exactly right.
-Well, you have made that perfectly clear, Al. You want to have dinner some night?
What do I have to do? I just don't think you hear me!
-Oh, I hear you. I hear you real good. You know what I think? I think we owe it to ourselves to live every single day that we have. I feel that I really want to get to know you better. Share a meal with you.
-What? What is it, baby?
I have a roommate.
-I have my own place.
In 20 days, I will not have a roof over my head. My social security check is a joke and my pension is tits up.

How can he sleep?
-He's getting laid.
Oh, yeah. I remember what that was like.
We'll get a lawyer and sue the piss out of them.
-Shxt. We'd be dead by the time the settlement comes in.
Which would suit them just fine.
-When did coffee go to two dollars?
A decade ago.
-God forbid you get extra foam on the top, you have to make payments.
I've been giving you crap for a long time, Murphy.
-I guess I deserve it. Mostly.
That's one of the smartest things you ever said.
We're famous.
-Better. We're infamous.
Wow! Pretty solid story, Mr. Harding.
-The truth is easy to remember.
Yeah. It was almost perfect. Except let me tell you a little something about criminals. They always make one stupid mistake that ends up screwing up the whole plan.

I'm a very sensitive person. I'm going to be honest with you. I don't really want to die today.
-That's a new one.
But, if I do, I just want to say that you've been a terrific roommate and friend for... 25 years.
-25 years? It's been that long?
Seems like 25 days, doesn't it?
-Yeah, it does. Underwater.
If you're lucky, you get a couple of great friends. The people who are right with you to the end. You grow old together, see it all together, do it all together, laugh and cry together. Al Garner was one of those guys for me. There will not be many men like him. Willing to risk all for others. Give you a kind word or a kidney. And complain about it every step of the way.

So? What's it like?
-What's what like?
Being married, dummy.
-I don't know how any of this happened. I mean, I don't even remember proposing. I mean, I feel like a raccoon caught in a bear trap with one leg stuck. She's a terrific person. I mean, she's sexy, we get it on. She's a great cook. She likes me the way I am. I don't even like me the way I am. Everything is terrific, but I got to tell you, I'm experiencing this very odd feeling. I think it might be happiness.
Cheers! Your glass is officially full.
It is a culture's duty to take care of its elderly.
-It is a culture's duty to take care of its elderly… Where's the tattoo?
Henna, mi amigo. Show the person with the worst eyes an image he can't forget. The policia will be spinning around for years.
