Movie Info

'Older' people are using Viagra, hooking up on, running marathons, flying planes and safely ditching them in the Hudson. Pull up a chair at this movable feast, break bread with this Brooklyn Band of Buddies who know each other for more than half a century as they break each other's chops. Their generational perspective connects with "No Country for Old Men" and "Gran Torino" while repelling notions of "Grumpy Old Men" and "Bucket List". (C) Official Site

History should record their weekly - but rare - achievement more often. Thank goodness this gentle, affectionate documentary does it.

If the film lacks momentum, it's still an hour or so spent among people who obviously love one another. In such company, who would quibble with the cook?

For the most part, we sit in on the conversations as good-natured, ordinary guys - all graduates of Brooklyn College in the '50s - reminisce.

These weathered guys are likeable enough but, like so many seniors, tend to repeat themselves, as does this documentary.
