Did You Know?


The only piece of "modern technology" in the film is the new car that Pacino, Walken, and Arkin drive throughout the film. If you notice, every other technology used is very old: rotary dial phones are used constantly; many AWA televisions are seen, one showing an old episode of what appears to be Soul Train; and several old cars are seen in the background throughout the film.

Doc grabs a bottle of pills off the shelf and calls them latanoprost, but latanoprost is a drop for the eye that is kept in the pharmacy refrigerator before dispensing to patients. Later, Valentine opens the capsules that doc says are for glaucoma (latanoprost is for glaucoma), and proceeds to snort the powder inside, which wouldn't be possible with any glaucoma meds as they are almost all drops except for 1 tablet available commercially.

Doc: My friend is looking for a "party".
Wendy: Yeah? What kind of party?
Val: Bar Mitzvah.

Yeah!! definitely better than bacon and eggs
18 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

This as good as it gets in the real sense, everything perfect, three great actors the mainstay of this movie, no words to describe anyone of them, Julianna Margulies a good actress herself looks wooden in comparison, though it would be unfair.

Whatever little violence there is has been underplayed to highlight the human aspect, heartwarming, not lacking in its comic moments, in fact it have everything, crime, drama, friendship, love, etc., etc., The movie has a warmth about it, well told story, superb acting and apt music for the film , one would wish they were a part of it, for a change Walken is sane, Pacino proves again he can be good at anything, you can't help but love Arkin in the cameo, I am a fan from his "wait until dark" days.

I did not expect any fireworks, I watched it for the cast, and I was not disappointed, an inferior cast may have not stood up to the challenge.

Overdone a little with the empty deserted streets, but the characters more than make up for any flaws A must watch movie, I give this 8/10 Al Pacino, Christopher Walken & Alan Arkin = A NEAR MASTERPIECE
