A remake of Going in Style (1979), which was directed by Martin Brest and starred George Burns, Art Carney, and Lee Strasberg. Three seniors, who are living social security check to check, and even are reduced to eating dog food at times, decide they have had enough. So, they plan to rob a bank. The 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 guns are loaded with blanks during the robbery, yet a semi-automatic pistol like the ones used, will only fire once unless modified to fire blanks. A pistol of this type requires back pressure to work the action, and a blank produces none. See more »
It is a fun movie for the older crowd. Three very good actors make good movie better. Being 72 I can relate to their dilemmas. A few good laughs. I would recommend it for the older folks. Young people might not feel empathy for the elders. It's nice to see a movie that relates to everyday problems of real people.
