Consensus: Depite the considerable talent of its leads, Going in Style is light on laughs and plays it safe far too often.

All three stars deliver exactly what you expect from them -- nothing more, nothing new -- but their onscreen familiarity is a strange comfort in itself.

Yes, it's good to see these wonderful actors get together in, well, almost anything, but this broken-down jalopy of a movie is not, to put it charitably, an ideal vehicle.

To cut a long story short, Going in Style is a warm and wonderful film on friendship and life post 60. Watch it with your best friends for life as some relationships are worth melting for indeed.

There are weightier movies with more moral complexity, but this is just a hug from grandpa. And who couldn't use more of those?

Its stars are such pros, they're so enormously charismatic and have such lovely chemistry with each other, it's hard not to be charmed by their mere presence on screen.

An entertaining comedy that leans on the talent of its stars, "Going in Style" is a fun way to kill 90 minutes in a darkened theatre.

Inevitably, the new Style is hopeful, encouraging audiences young and old to believe that even in our nursing-home years we can accomplish remarkable feats.

Update of 1979's three-men-and-a-bank-robbery caper is no bargain, but it does let you hang with the A-list senior cast of Morgan Freeman, 79, Alan Arkin, 83, and Michael Caine, 84.

This is Braff's first mainstream film effort, and he falls back on his sitcom roots, going broad with the humor and pretty pedestrian in style.

I've noticed a few movies like this in recent years, you know, with a small tight-knit roster of aging A-list stars that might not be here for much longer… More

An average and highly amusing crime caper. Caine, Freeman and Arkin are charismatic enough to make this comedy work but there's only so much charisma to… More

All the charm of listening to yer Grandma or Grandpa pass gas ... for 90 minutes. Okay. Less charming.

If seeing Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, and Alan Arkin pal around and bicker for 90 minutes is enough reason to see a movie, then Going in Style offers that… More

Freeman, Caine and Arkin undoubtedly have chemistry, but Going in Style is an overly 'studio-friendly' remake of the 1979 film that could have been so… More
