Plot Summary

Val (Al Pacino) is released from prison after serving twenty-eight years for refusing to give up one of his close criminal associates. His best friend Doc (Christopher Walken) is there to pick him up, and the two soon re-team with another old pal, Hirsch (Alan Arkin). Their bond is as strong as ever and despite their age, their capacity for mayhem is still very much alive. Bullets fly as they make a hilariously valiant effort to compensate for the decades of crime, drugs and sex they've missed.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: Some actors don't need top-shelf material. Just the pleasure of their company is enough. And so Al Pacino, Christopher Walken and Alan Arkin turn the insubstantial Stand Up Guys into solid entertainment. – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, Feb 2, 2013

Rotten: There is a sense that everyone, this treasure trove of talent included, is waiting for something to happen, some bit of alchemy that will make the story coalesce into a whole and take it beyond the jokes about Viagra, hookers and regrets. – Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine, Jan 31, 2013

Rotten: It's been a long time since a movie wasted as much talent as Stand Up Guys, a film that aims to be a geezer Goodfellas but whose execution is a misfire. – Scott Bowles, USA Today, Jan 31, 2013

Rotten: Actor-turned-director Fisher Stevens gravely misjudges the tone - when he isn't trying to get too cute about everything, he slathers his characters in unearned sentimentality. – Scott Tobias, NPR, Jan 31, 2013

Wonderful requiem for old men

Pleasantly surprised by the plot and characters. I enjoyed the emotional depth of the characters and the caring friendship between them. Worth a watch.
