  • Some actors don't need top-shelf material. Just the pleasure of their company is enough. And so Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin turn the insubstantial Stand Up Guys into solid entertainment. show more

  • It's long on Viagra jokes and whorehouse scenes, and comes up short on plausibility. show more

  • Elegiac and corny and not really convincing on any level (especially when it comes to its treatment of women - be they hookers, or waitresses, or girls on the town), Stand Up Guys nonetheless holds some fascination just for the off-the-charts affectedness of Pacino's performance. show more

    I love anything Chris Walken is acting in...and Al Pacino is great too. The movie was funny and sad--and the theme has been done before--BUT not with these guys. Love watching old actors doing their thing!

    Great movie !! Yeah some of the lines were corny, but the delivery by these veterans became secondary to the script. This movie evokes all the emotions...comedy, saddness, and intrige. If you understand the proces of aging, it will thug at your heart
