It was OK. Wouldn't recommend it to any of the people I know. Only one or two good moments; the rest, juvenile humor. One hard-on too many.

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.

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.

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.

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.
