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!

TERRIBLE! I was shocked at just how bad it was.

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

Fails to plumb the dramatic depths of its setups, but every now and then the actors pick up the slack, filling in the blanks with three decades's worth of mythic resonance. Full Review

While the action is brisk, the film never feels in a hurry. Walken and Pacino amble through their paces. Arkin ups the adrenaline any time he's around, and he is not around quite enough. Full Review

The script is undernourished, the supporting characters - including a horribly miscast Lucy Punch - ill-conceived, and Val increasingly hard to take. But when the movie ended, I wanted to watch Walken all over again. Full Review

It's like stocking a team with proven performers and hoping that everything else will work itself out at the end, including a rickety script, indifferent direction, and a plot that pretends its final act is anything other than a cliché-hugging inevitability. Full Review
Joe Morgenstern
Wall Street Journal
It's long on Viagra jokes and whorehouse scenes, and comes up short on plausibility. Full Review
