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 movie everyone is watching the night before the heist is Dog Day Afternoon (1975), which was about a botched bank robbery. 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 »
The movie was the best thing, which could happen to me in sneak preview. I laughed so often, an wonderful story combined with great actors and Zach Braff, who made a great job to transform the old movie into todays background. I'd like to see more movies like this, than the stupid standard comedy from Hollywood. I recommend everyone to see this film and have great two hours. A quick summary: perfect chosen actor,s a bit predictable, but i liked it anyway, jokes,jokes,jokes... GO watch this film !
