Academy Award-winners George Burns ("Oh, God!" series) and Art Carney ("The Honeymooners," "Last Action Hero") co-star with method acting legend Lee Strasberg ("The Godfather Part II") as three mild-mannered retirees who usually spend their days sitting on a park bench. When the trio decides to rob a bank, their lives change in ways they never expected. This touching off-beat comedy came early in the career of writer/director Martin Brest ("Scent of a Woman," "Beverly Hills Cop"). Leonard Maltin praises this "unexpected gem from a 28-year-old filmmaker which is predictably funny, and unpredictably moving, with Burns a standout in a terrific cast."

'70s comedy caper tugs at heartstrings; some swearing.
