About the Movie
Old Goats is the hilarious and heartfelt story of a trio of spirited senior citizens on a quest to make the most of their sunset years. Friends Bob, Britt and Dave are each confronting aging in his own unique fashion: straight-laced Dave rebels against his wife's plans for their new retirement, hoarder Britt struggles with online dating after decades alone on his houseboat, and lively ladies man Bob juggles a hyperactive social schedule and a fanciful memoir about his adventurous past. Rife with equal doses of attitude and charm, this slice-of-life comedy finds off-beat humor in the everyday foibles of life and love after retirement, and provides a refreshing perspective on "the golden years" proving it's never too late to chase your dreams.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As these buddies banter about the irritations of getting on and getting along, it does not feel as if the movie were making jokes at their expense.
Rotten: Intriguing non-pro actors are badly served by a half-baked film.
Fresh: "Old Goats" is a different kind of film, enjoyable in its uniqueness, though its charms have a limited shelf life.
Fresh: Taylor Guterson's film offers thoughtful, if familiar, comments on friendship, self-doubt, and romantic angst.
This is an incredibly creative movie using real people playing themselves in their own environment. Guterson has crafted a very funny movie from totally raw materials. I wish there were a lot more films like this and a lot less about robots and aliens and Wall Street gangsters.
I thoroughly enjoyed this film even though the characters are probably 40 years older than I am. Guterson does a great job of blending fiction and reality and creating a unique snapshot into the lives of these characters. A new take on the 'bromance' comedy, this is a film that people of all ages will be able to enjoy.
