A reboot of the 1979 movie that was directed by Martin Brest and featured George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Three seniors, who are living social security check to check and even reduced to eating dog food at times, decide they have had enough. So, they plan to rob a bank...problem is, they don't even know how to handle a gun! A social commentary on growing old in America and what we are sometimes driven to, due to circumstances.Written by
The fictional bank in the movie is the Williamsburg Savings Bank. There was a real-life bank by that name that was taken over by HSBC Bank. The interior of the bank was filmed in the actual WSB building in Brooklyn, New York, which has landmark status. See more »
When the boys are shown planning the robbery, there is a cutaway scene that shows Willie beginning a dialysis treatment. The medical worker is trying to insert the needle without the use of a tourniquet, which is virtually impossible, and would never be done by a trained phlebotomist. See more »
Lately most movies are so full of killings and gross things I just do not need to see! My husband and I went to see this movie as it looked fun. BOY IT WAS FUN! Lots of laughter and truly made you think about what some families go through to live day to day. WE LOVED THIS MOVIE SO MUCH. Excellent cast. very nice! Will return to see it again. Worth every dime.
