Stand Up Guys Reviews

Jason Best
Movie Talk

The pace is too slack, the gags too tired and the plot too hackneyed for the film to be more than fitfully engaging for all but die-hard Pacino and Walken fans.

While you can forgive Pacino and Walken for looking exhausted at this stage in their careers, it's sad to see them taking on listless material that involves Viagra gags.

Eric D. Snider

Thanks to Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin - mostly just for being charismatic old pros who are fun to hang out with - Stand Up Guys is watchable, occasionally amusing, not altogether insufferable.

Shadows on the Wall

A messy script isn't enough to undermine these clever veteran actors, who manage to make the most of the humour, drama and action without ever losing their dignity.

Stand Up Guys probably won't appeal to anyone whose father hasn't got friends of pensionable age.

It's depressing to see the likes of Pacino reduced to making erectile dysfunction jokes, more so when the film labours the gag by having him overdose on Viagra.

Viagra is consumed, erections wrestled, old scores settled - blah blah blah.

Even when Walken, Pacino, and Arkin are phoning it in - on a rotary phone - they still earn their status as icons.

Digital Spy

There's sharp dialogue and the odd, startling moment of emotional intimacy scattered amidst the dreck; enough to make this a solidly entertaining couple of hours if you try resolutely not to think about it too hard.

Rich Cline

Frankly, if you put Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin in your movie, you don't really need to worry about the script: we'd happily watch them do just about anything on-screen.

Think what they might have achieved with better material.

This is London

An initially promising, increasingly glutinous buddy comedy that exploits and squanders the talents of its starry cast.

Peter Bradshaw

With a little bit of chutzpah and a fistful of Viagra, the tough guys of yesteryear can still come staggering back to make a decent movie.

A rewarding mash-up of Last of the Summer Wine and Goodfellas.

You'd think that septuagenarians Al Pacino and Christopher Walken would still have enough self-respect left in the tank to steer clear of debacles like this.

All three acting legends bring the spice to a sub-par story. But, the total is not enough to keep this flick from stinking.

There's much entertainment ... in watching a trio of great actors in the twilight of their careers, at work with a strong script.

Stand Up Guys is very much an old man's film, but Stevens just about delivers the performances that its ageing audience demands.

It's hardly great, but it's refreshingly old school.

There's something about Stand Up Guys that's both brilliant and poignant.
