Stand Up Guys

Really enjoyed the movie. It was nice to go to a movie that wasn't high tech special effect overkill. There was actually a story to this movie that you understood almost immediately. Pacino and Walken have a chemistry that makes it believable and you find yourself liking their characters. The actress that played the waitress (Addison Timlin) seals the deal with her genuine likability and heartfelt smile. Tremendous acting throughout (no Pacino over-acting) Not sure why the critics are so harsh on this one because if you want to see a good movie without over theatrical over-hyped stunts, this is a definite see!

Great Cast/Great Fun

Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin are pitch perfect in their roles as washed-up bad guys on their last legs. The deadpan humor was hilarious with a touch of pathos for the situation they find themselves in. The ending (you have to see it) is perfect.

It was not predictable....it had heart....we laughed....we cheered. It was a fun ride and, like Silver Linings" it was not what you may be expexting when knowing it is about a reunion of 3 old thugs. Go see it! You will be glad you did.

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.

My husband and I found it very entertaining. The story was great and it kept us engaged until the very end. The acting was first class. Brought quite a few laughs with the audience throughout the movie. I found it a very entertaining movie. Highly recommend it.
