AT THE MOVIES ~ GOING IN STYLE

AT THE MOVIES ~ GOING IN STYLE
 
Going In Style is visual comfort food, an entertaining, undemanding mac & cheese of a movie, which delivers gentle chuckles across a script tight enough and clever enough to keep you interested.
 
It helps having three consumate actors (Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Alan Arkin) who, while not stretching their acting chops, appear to be having a good time. By their very watchability (and that of Ann Margaret, who has always been and remains very watchable) they carry the lightweight undertaking through it's two hours of traditional heist film twists and turns to the satisfying happy ending.
 
I didn't expect much going in, but came out of the theatre with a smile on my face feeling pleasantly surprised...
