It seems particularly perverse to take actors who helped develop the '60's thesping style of hang-loose, semi-improvisational immediacy and stick them in a creaky period piece glazed with arch gentility and ersatz quaintness.

This musty yarn would have worked better as a 1940s MGM programmer.

The Golden Boys is an object lesson in how to squander a seasoned cast, a charming premise and a breathtaking location.
| Original Score: 1.5/5

Trying to sit through The Golden Boys is like trudging across the Cape Cod sand in galoshes during a nor'easter with a mule on your back.

Aside from the occasional magical shot or affecting actor moment, it's a film whose poverty betrays most every frame.

You can feel yourself growing older in the 90 minutes it takes to watch this horrid piece of filmed dinner theater.
