Most of us over 70 could not manage to work as hard as these guys didto produce this film. I asked my husband if he enjoyed the movie and hesaid he did. He is 75. Maybe the bad reviewers are too young andcritical to appreciate a film about old people. It is not a great moviebut it is also not a terrible one. Lower your expectations and sit backand enjoy a few old people jokes and the fact that 70 plus guys canactually make a reasonable movie. Caan is a good actor and he carriesthe film along with some help from his buddies. The two young ones do areasonable job as well. They are older than the characters they areportraying. There are no earth shattering scenes or fast chases but thestoryline is okay. It is about rescuing a damsel in distress by herboyfriend and his grandfather along with some aged buddies. There is notrick photography or devices used to make it faster paced or moreexciting. Expect an okay movie and if you are over 70 it will help.

This may not have been the worst movie I've ever seen because there areso many terrible movies being made anymore but it certainly feels likeit. Stupid "plot" with old retired government agent elements swipedfrom Bruce Willis',"RED"--but MUCH older men, the Robert Duvall oldguy/young whippersnapper fight scene from "Second Hand Lions" and whatseems to be the now requisite dopey teen love story. And I was onceagain reminded of what an awful--truly awful--actor James Caan is. Ugh.Can't believe I watched the thing all the way through. Another exampleof the complete lack of quality and creativity in entertainmentanymore.
