I remember going “yeah, not great but not bad” when I saw Martin Brest‘s Going In Style (’79). Gentle and melancholy in tone, it waded into old-age anger and loneliness and despondency while throwing in occasional gags. George Burns, who costarred with Art Carney and Lee Strasberg, gave the standout performance. The new version, directed by Zach Braff and costarring Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman and Alan Arkin, appears to go light on the melancholy, and seems to be into broad humor more than anything else. Warner Bros. will open it on 4.17.17; it was originally set for 5.6.16.
