7th April
written by Adam

Three retired steel workers discover their pension is about to be dissolved with no sane recourse. So, naturally what are the disgruntled to do, rob a bank of course. But for Willie, Joe, and Albert (Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin) this will take special training, how will they ever pull off a heist of this proportion and at their age, and what about this sexy minx, Annie (Ann-Margret), who keeps hanging around? Written by Theodore Melfi and Directed by Zach Braff, this light hearted romp is completely harmless in its breezy fox trot through the retirement home. Without really stretching any of the ensemble to any degree, Braff creates a simple charmer that pokes fun in all the expected geriatric ways making for easy escapism allowing us to see some of Hollywood’s senior champs still having fun. Really more of a rental later, Going in Style is rated PG-13.
