In this hilarious crime comedy, a gifted 12-year-old boy and three elderly men plan a bank robbery in order to seek revenge on the institution for cheating the youngster after the death of his father.
Occasionally Hunting Elephants lumbers in sentimental directions, which hardly square with its Benny Hill-style sensibilities.
A little gem.
Decorated with whippy one-liners, Hunting Elephants gets mired in old-fashioned vaudevillian leering.
"Hunting Elephants" will not go down in the annals of comedy history, but at the least it will probably be the best screwball comedy heist movie mostly spoken in Hebrew in theaters this year.
A comedy caper full of incorrigible old geezers that's as broad as barn door.
A few laughs, mostly provided by Patrick Stewart. An edgy Israeli comedy that plays it too safe.
The tired caper flick can't crack a smile, never mind a bank vault.
... despite the best efforts of its cast, Hunting Elephants is a tame comedic excursion into a flimsy world of social lechery and geriatric dysfunction, albeit one that garnered seven Israeli Film Academy Awards nominations.
Mostly settles for old-people jokes (now I know the Hebrew for Viagra: it's Viagra) and making Patrick Stewart look like an imbecile.
