YOU’RE NEVER TOO OLD TO GET EVEN.
After losing their pensions due to corporate restructuring, three New York City retirees (Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin) are toying with the idea of robbing a bank. The original 1979 film had a bunch of older comedians in the leads; the remake cast more prominent Hollywood stars. They’re a huge reason why this comedy is worth a look; Caine and Freeman have done several movies together and they know how to work their charm, together with Arkin and Ann-Margret (in a much smaller role). A breezy time-filler, pleasantly made by Zach Braff, who avoids the undignified mistakes of a few earlier comedies for seniors.
2017-U.S. 96 min. Color. Widescreen. Directed by Zach Braff. Cast: Michael Caine (Joe Harding), Morgan Freeman (Willie Davis), Alan Arkin (Albert Garner), Ann-Margret, Matt Dillon, John Ortiz… Christopher Lloyd.
