Occasionally Hunting Elephants lumbers in sentimental directions, which hardly square with its Benny Hill-style sensibilities.

Hunting Elephants can't even be enjoyed ironically; believe me, I tried.

"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.

... 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.

The tired caper flick can't crack a smile, never mind a bank vault.

Levi, who made Lost Islands, a melodrama that was quite popular here a few years ago, is an accomplished showman and has made an entertaining comedy.

Decorated with whippy one-liners, Hunting Elephants gets mired in old-fashioned vaudevillian leering.
