Four aging former mobsters -- Joey "Bats" Pistella (Burt Reynolds), Bobby Bartellemeo (Richard Dreyfuss), Mike the Brick (Dan Hedaya), and Tony "The Mouth" Donato (Seymour Cassel) -- live in the same rundown Miami apartment complex, the Raj Mahal.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The Crew is all contrivance and we don't believe a minute of it."
‑ Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"The movie always seems to be out of sync with itself."
‑ Cole Smithey,
"... the worst of American popular culture; it is a lazy, condescending, formulaic film that the filmmakers didn't even bother to finish"
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Bereft of funny lines or even vaguely plausible plot twists."
‑ Susannah Breslin, TNT's Rough Cut
"The Crew may think it's hitting a Soprano high note but in reality it's just sleeping with the fishes."
‑ Jeffrey Huston, Jeff Huston's Believe Me
"As entertaining as Ovaltine, it's a lead contender for worst movie of the year."
‑ Steve Murray, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
"My first reaction to The Crew was: 'Thank goodness it was only 88 minutes.'"
‑ Judith Egerton, Courier-Journal (Louisville, KY)
"Yeah, nothing funnier than old men farting and Viagra jokes."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"The Crew pumps 'zany' nonsense until it drools and wheezes."
‑ David Elliott, San Diego Union-Tribune
"Every time it delivers a clever line or appears on the verge of coming up with an original idea, a tide of cliches washes The Crew back out to sea."
‑ Todd Anthony, South Florida Sun-Sentinel
"A forgettable made-for-TV-like production."
‑ Scott G. Mignola, Common Sense Media
"Once the story clicks into gear, The Crew is a lot of fun. But that doesn't happen until after the midpoint."
‑ Jeffrey Westhoff, Northwest Herald (Crystal Lake, IL)
"This is pure sitcom, the characters are all clichés, and if it wasn't for the situation there'd be no jokes at all."
‑ Eric Lurio, Greenwich Village Gazette
"As toothless as the denture-wearing astronaut in Space Cowboys."
‑ Duane Dudek, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
"Basically a TV movie-of-the-week that's been dressed up with big names."
‑ George Meyer, Orlando Weekly
