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.

Stand-up guys

Brilliant cast and superb writing about three old-timer gangsters who still have their values. Pacino Walken and Arkin are sensational in this drama that goes from bitersweet comedy to violence to philosphy for life. Totally enjoyable--will probably become one of those littale talked about classics.

This is a good movie for everyone; but a great film for us baby boomers. Pacino's and Walken's performance's are wonderful. The film has a great storyline consisting of love, caring and fond memories that we have as we grow older. I found that the friendship aspect of the film being so true to our real lives. For all of us baby boomers the soundtrack is fantastic. I think the 35 and under crowd will enjoy this film as well; but they might not truly appreciate the loyalty and friendship of it to the fullest. I enjoyed this film and I hope that you give it a look too. It's worth your time and money.

Stand up Guys...A Disappointment

I love all 3 of the actors in this movie, but found the script to be very broing & thoughtless. Everytime a line came up where we thought the movie was going to pick up turned out to be the only good line in the scene. Stop writing these pathetic roles for older actors...they are still better than all of the actors (most of which are just pretty boy celebrities that have no talent) of today & are still able to carry a good script...they dont need these token roles to keep them going. It was the most boring...seemed like 5 hours of my life.
