Product Description

Three senior citizens in their 70s who live together are slowly decaying in endless days with nothing to do but feed the birds. One of them comes up with an idea - rob a bank. They certainly could use the money if they get away with it and if they are caught, what could happen to three old men?

Customer Reviews:

  • Going in Style:Good entertainment!
    This is a movie that is truly overlooked. George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg delivered a humorous yet touching work from 1979. Three senior citizens tired of watching kids and birds in the park decide to rob a bank in Manhattan. The rest is comical and sad in this. Good stuff. It's worth sitting on your recliner and muching popcorn!!...more info

    Funny, very very funny. Easy to watch & route for the bad guys!Because the characters are 'senior citizens', younger people may not find this funny....more info

    George Burns at his best. Just as good as 'Oh God" and it has a twist at the end. Funny Movie. Worth an evening of Popcorn and a beer....more info
  • An underappreciated heist comedy-drama.
    Pretty much overlooked when it came out in 1979, this film is a rare gem. George Burns, Art Carney and Lee Strasberg play three retirees sharing a house in Queens. Bored and bitter, Joe (Burns) talks Al and Willie (Carney and Strasberg) into going in on a bank robbery. The three get a real buzz out of pulling off the job, the only excitement they've had in years. But what seems to have been the perfect crime soon begins to have tragic consequences. When Willie dies from a heart attack, Joe and Al take off for Vegas where they wind up getting into a once in a lifetime crap game. This excursion then takes on tragic consequences of its own, leading up to a bittersweet ending. While all three of the leads are terrific, it is really Burns who carries the film. I believe this to be his best film work. For those who have always felt that a little bit of George goes a long way, you should check this film out to see what a truly remarkable acting talent he could be when given the material. His work here is totally devoid of the "cuteness" that marked a lot of the films he was in such as "Oh, God!" A truly Oscar-worthy performance. One wonders what the atmosphere on the set must have been like with Burns and Carney, two masters of schtick, and Strasberg, the father of modern method acting. Whatever the chemistry, it definitely shows up on screen....more info
