Al Pacino and Christopher Walken worked well together.Yes,some of the jokes were on the corny side (use of Viagra) but with these fine actors you go with it. This was an entertaining comedy with a lot of heart.At times it reminded me of the movie Scarecrow with Al Pacino and Gene Hackman (1973)You old timers might remember that movie.Stand Up Guys ended the only way possible.No more from me there.See this movie and enjoy.

Just incase you didn't know - Fisher who directed this has an Oscar in his pocket for The Cove, a beautiful documentary.
This has a stellar cast - give it a shot, it's worth it just to see them together playing!

Pacino & Walken - how can you NOT see this? I would watch these guys freakin' fold laundry and enjoy it. What a great duet - these two had a blast making the film, and we get to watch. If you didn't enjoy it, you were missing the subtle beats that made it so dang good.
A huge thank you to the screenwriter for not dumbing it down.

It was a very funny movie and would love to see it again. All parts were played very well and the ending was not what I expected but still a great movie to see. I think the acting was top notched. The cinematograthy was at it's best. It is not for kids or even teens but a great movie for the well aged adults.

Watching a bunch of true professionals at work is always worthwhile. The characters were made live and believable. Pair that with a good story, well paced and told and you have a fun, well spent two hours. Movie-making as it should be.
