About the Movie
Four former made men (Reynolds, Cassell, Dreyfuss, and Hedaya), struggling to get by in a rundown Miami hotel, come up with a plot to drive out all of the young tenants that are slowly taking over the beach-front hotel and driving up their rent. Taking a man that was found dead on the beach, they arrange what appears to be a mob hit and provide a note that says more killings are to occur. Unfortunately the old man they use turns out to be the senile father of a druglord. The druglord declares war on the killers of his father, thinking it was an action of his enemies. A stripper (Jennifer Tilly) learns of the old men's involvement and threatens to squeal on them unless they kill her stepmother (Lainie Kazan). Meanwhile, one man (Dreyfuss) searches for his long-lost daughter, who is the investigating police officer (Carrie Anne Moss), trying to divest herself from her crumb fellow officer & former boyfriend (Jeremy Piven).

Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The Crew is cobbled together in desperate obedience to the widespread Hollywood fallacy that the more plot a movie has, the more people will like it.
Rotten: A sweet-natured little film with its heart in the right place, but despite its best intentions, it just doesn't quite come together.
Rotten: For all its violent gestures, this one screams safety, safety, safety, never taking anything like a real chance, never going anywhere unruly or unpredictable in its dogged allegiance to blandness.
Rotten: The movie is so mild, so benign, its humiliation-to-vindication arc so predictable and its old-folks jokes so feeble that you want them to start shooting the remake immediately.
