Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Alan Arkin team up as lifelong buddies Willie, Joe and Al, who decide to buck retirement and step off the straight-and-narrow for the first time in their lives when their pension fund becomes a corporate casualty. Desperate to pay the bills and come through for their loved ones, the three risk it all by embarking on a daring bid to knock off the very bank that absconded with their money.

Critics Consensus: Depite the considerable talent of its leads, Going in Style is light on laughs and plays it safe far too often.

Comedy remake has lovable leads, some language, drugs.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Going in Style, which stars Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Alan Arkin, is a remake of a 1979 caper comedy. Directed by Zach Braff, the heist comedy has a bit of salty language ("s--t," "a--hole," "ass," "damn"), as well as some suggestive scenes of a couple in bed (always after the implied love-making has happened -- never full love scenes), and a few moments when the main characters drink or smoke pot. But mostly they just drink bad coffee and eat pie. Although it's about a bank robbery (and does include scenes of guns being brandished and fired), this is a Robin Hood tale, and the men are so endearing and family oriented that the messages end up being positive, conveying themes of teamwork and perseverance.
