Audience Reviews for Tough Guys

  • Nov 06, 2011
    Legendary duo Lancaster and Douglas team up again, for the last time, in this highly amusing comedy about a couple of old boy cons released and out of date in the modern world (1986). Its now of course even more amusing as 86 was along long time ago and the film has dated somewhat haha, this doesn't detract from the fun as the two leads are really magic together and play off each other perfectly, they almost look like brothers in their natty 50's suits. The plot is pretty thin on the ground lets be frank here but the entire film is held together merely by the fantastic pairing of the two aging stars, the comedy is fair but the tough hood persona is so right for the duo. The film never gets dull for a moment as we see the guys try to live in their new world, Douglas has more of the laughs in his jobs where as Lancaster has more of the emotional side in his retirement home. Along for this ride is Eli Wallach but to be honest his role isn't really needed and seems a bit too strong for this light hearted comedy, where as Charles Durning is perfect for his usual type role of a policeman on the case, stoic springs to mind. Some great sequences, mainly the finale with the train heist which looks great, ending is a little flat and abrupt but I can't fault this top comedy, its surprising how good the duo were at comedy like this, you wouldn't think it really. Very much along the lines of 'My Fellow Americans' which is another good old boy classic.

    well what can you say they are two ultimate legends of the movie buisness and cant say a bad word about them, i dont think this was ever planned to be a classic, and i liked that was just a fun way for them to fade out their careers and it sure as hell looked liked they had fun making the movie there was several times when i was laughing during this movie, and their chemistry was great together they seemed to bounce of each other then you had the extra character of leon b little played by eli wallach who played his role as the daft hit man perfectly but on a more serious note though i think it did light up the fact that the parole system doesnt really help when someone whos been in jail that long comes out and tries to fit back into society

    A story of two legendary train robbers who have been paroled... the world has changed but they have not. Firs they try to fit in before realising that they are too old to change and provide many laughs along the way!
