Goofs

In the repair shop garage, Grandpa picks up a large chrome-plated semi-automatic pistol that has been laying on the desk. He holds it in his right hand and cradles the pistol with his left hand. When he does, his left thumb is up along the middle of the slide as he is pointing it at the man behind the desk. Someone trained in firearms would never do this as the slide drives back and forth forcefully while ejecting the empty case and loading the new cartridge. As a result of this, severe damage, including the loss of a finger, could occur to one's left hand if the trigger was pulled in this configuration and the above sequence occurred. See more »

Quotes

Mr. Sterning: Mr. Bouchard, me thinks you would be better served taking notes than sketching portraits.
Jake Bouchard: [whispering] Me thinks old people should be seen and not heard.

One for the over seventies
3 November 2017 | by KathleenK22See all my reviews

Most of us over 70 could not manage to work as hard as these guys did to produce this film. I asked my husband if he enjoyed the movie and he said he did. He is 75. Maybe the bad reviewers are too young and critical to appreciate a film about old people. It is not a great movie but it is also not a terrible one. Lower your expectations and sit back and enjoy a few old people jokes and the fact that 70 plus guys can actually make a reasonable movie. Caan is a good actor and he carries the film along with some help from his buddies. The two young ones do a reasonable job as well. They are older than the characters they are portraying. There are no earth shattering scenes or fast chases but the storyline is okay. It is about rescuing a damsel in distress by her boyfriend and his grandfather along with some aged buddies. There is no trick photography or devices used to make it faster paced or more exciting. Expect an okay movie and if you are over 70 it will help.
