  • Jul 24, 2010
    An attempt to make a comedy/drama with great movie stars, but the chemistry blows out in a void and melodramatic screenplay and poor performances.Such a waste.

    Top cast, but it's all over the place.

    Three generations of robbers, played by top actors, creates an interesting chemistry and chance for fun scenes. The relationship between the grandson (Matthew Broderick) and his grandfather (Sean Connery) is cool; the spike is with the daddy Dustin Hoffman. There's some sadness to be expected with the fun, however.

    Should have been a much better film. It's all rather bland.
