Joe (Michael Caine), Willie (Morgan Freeman), and Al (Alan Arkin) are three retired pals who’ve been friends for years. Having worked at the same company, they’ve just found out that their pensions have been dissolved. While at the bank, discussing his looming foreclosure, Joe finds himself caught in the middle of a bank robbery, and the spark of an idea is born. Why not rob a bank? Not just any bank though – the very bank that stole their pensions! The other guys think Joe is a bit crazy, but they begin their prep work, and soon the day has come. They’re going to rob a bank, but do they have what it takes?
This is a remake of the 1979 movie of the same name, starring George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg, and I didn’t expect to like it as much as I did. Of course there was a lot of humor, but this movie also has a lot of heart. These three actors working together have great chemistry and are a treat to watch. Rated PG-13. Also featuring: Matt Dillon, Ann Margret, and Christopher Lloyd.
