Going In Style (review)
3 retirees (Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Alan Arkin) discover their pension fund is being discontinued, so they decide to rob a bank. Surprisingly, the heist itself isn’t the finish line, there’s a whole post-robbery investigation they have to elude. The ageist jokes (even out of their own mouths) are in abundance, but the laffs are minimal. This cast is talented, but only Arkin has any humor in his portrayal (Christoper Lloyd’s clueless character is an insult and an embarrassment). Considering that director Zach Braff has a history in comedy, he didn’t impart any of his skills to this movie. It doesn’t help that the script is flat and predictable.
